Well that's just spoiled! My first ride was a horse and wagon, talk about inconvenient.
No matter what era we're in there will always be a generation before us that will say you're spoiled and "they don't make cars like the use to"
As for the tailgate assist, I first saw it on my father in laws sierra and always liked the idea when I opened Tundra tail gates. (I test drove a tundra) I am getting one for my new ram, more for when other people open my tailgate or the wife opens the tail gate.
