OK, OK, don't shoot! I admit I was soft, I didn't have MMM FI money until I was 54 yrs old.
I'm now 62 and mostly RE with more than MMM FI. I can afford to be soft.

I assume it's more in response to the recent glut of people excusing face-punch worthy extravagance. "Oh, yes buy the new SUV, it makes sense for you. It's ok, I spend $$$ on eating out every other day too!"

  There are variants of 'Soft'.
 My newest vehicle is 10 years old (business) my oldest is 20 yrs old. (personal)
 I have a lunch out maybe twice a week, yesterday I spent $6.49 to feed two of us.
Dinner out is more like once a month.

I've seen this a handful of times and I still get goosebumps when I read through the panels.

Same here--I remember seeing this a number of years ago and discovering that my eyes were leaking as I got to the end.  ;-)
