Dreaded Amway products

There were several reasons I didn't want to get involved with Amway again. Some of the reasons:

1. Losing our money
2. Wasting our time
3. Attending lengthy meetings where the same thing was said over and over and over
4. Using nasty Amway products

Of course there were many other reasons, namely our sponsor is an arrogant prick who I've never liked and don't want to spend any time around.

But back to the shitty Amway products.

I do not use vitamins. People who eat healthy meals and follow balanced diets generally do not need supplements. Sure enough the upline told us all these vitamins we "needed" to take. Offers the best PV bang for your buck is what they preached. So our cupboard ended up jam packed with just about every vitamin my Ambot could think to buy.

I never felt any difference taking Amway Nutrilite vitamins. To be fair, no difference taking vitamins from other suppliers either. Maybe because Amway IBO's are running around from one meeting to another they don't have time to stop and cook decent meals and they have to cram in fast foods or not eat at all, they need to use vitamin supplements.

I also hated Amway dish soap, Dish Drops. This comes in a small bottle with a pump dispenser. The thing I hate most about Dish Drops is the bubbles don't last. I'm still washing dishes and I have no soap bubbles. Its not like I have a ton of dishes I wash in the sink. I do have a dishwasher, but I also wash by hand any dishwasher rejects or items that I don't put in the dishwasher. They came in 1 litre refill sizes, and like the good Ambot my husband was, he stocked up on Dish Drops and we're still using it long after our Amway affiliation has ended.

Amway also sold dishwasher detergent, little white pucks. I hated them too. After every load I'd pull dishes or plates out that I'd call "dishwasher rejects" and then I'd have to wash them by hand with the shitty Dish Drops whose bubbles didn't last. Nasty! If my Ambot husband washed the dishes maybe the shitty Amway products wouldn't have bothered me so much, but he doesn't clean up so I have to. I prefer to use cleaning products that actually work.

I finally had enough of the shitty Amway dishwasher pucks and didn't inform the Ambot when they ran out. Instead I visited a forum and saw a discussion going on about the best dishwasher soap and the overwhelming response went to Wal-Mart's own brand, Great Value, so I decided to give them a try. Its a powder in plastic wrap that disolves during the wash. Wow! What a difference. It actually gets my dishes and glasses clean. I am no longer having the huge stack of dishwasher rejects. In fact its very rare that I'll have to pull aside anything to rewash by hand.

The Ambot noticed I'd switched dishwasher machine detergents and wanted to know why I didn't tell him so he could order more Amway shit. I told him I was fed up with all the dishwasher rejects that I had to wash by hand and told him if he wanted to continue using Amway dishwasher pucks, then he was going to be responsible for hand washing the rejects.

That settled that problem!

Comments are moderated but we publish just about everything. Even brainwashed ambots who show up here to accuse us of not trying hard enough and that we are lazy, quitters, negative, unchristian dreamstealers. Like we haven’t heard that Amspeak abuse from the assholes in our upline!

If your comment didn’t get published it could be one of these reasons:
1. Is it the weekend? We don’t moderate comments on weekends. Maybe not every day during the week either. Patience.
2. Racist/bigoted comments? Take that shit somewhere else.
3. Naming names? Public figures like politicians and actors and people known in Amway are probably OK – the owners, Diamonds with CDs or who speak at functions, people in Amway’s publicity department who write press releases and blogs. Its humiliating for people to admit their association with Amway so respect their privacy if they’re not out there telling everyone about the love of their life.
4. Gossip that serves no purpose. There are other places to dish about what Diamonds are having affairs or guessing why they’re getting divorced. If you absolutely must share that here – don’t name names. I get too many nosy ambots searching for this. Lets not help them find this shit.
5. Posting something creepy anonymously and we can’t track your location because you’re on a mobile device or using hide my ass or some other proxy. I attracted an obsessed fan and one of my blog administrators attracted a cyberstalker. Lets keep it safe for everyone. Anonymous is OK. Creepy anonymous and hiding – go fuck yourselves!
6. Posting something that serves no purpose other than to cause fighting.
7. Posting bullshit Amway propaganda. We might publish that comment to make fun of you. Otherwise take your agenda somewhere else. Not interested.
8. Notice how this blog is written in English? That's our language so keep your comments in English too. If you leave a comment written in another language then we either have to use Google translate to put it into English so everyone can understand what you wrote or we can hit the Delete button. Guess which one is easier for us to do?
9. We suspect you're a troublemaking Amway asshole.
10. Your comment got caught in the spam filter. Gets checked occasionally. We’ll get to you eventually and approve it as long as it really isn’t spam.
