Upline devotion when safety is an issue?

Ambot gets a phone call late afternoon from the upline. The pompous sack of shit Platinum is returning home, flying into the airport that is about a 45 minute drive from our house - when the weather and traffic is good. All downline are being asked to get to the airport to greet him when he comes in.

Ambot is all hyped to go. He must go to the airport to cheer on the cult leader when he walks through the airport door.

I tell him to stay home where its safe. Its snowing and there is a police advisory telling people to stay off the streets if they don't need to go out. Ambot is determined to get to the airport, slowly driving through the snow, and paying the outrageous parking fee at the airport. Not to mention spending 3 or 4 hours on this exercise when he could have been doing something else that's more productive. Absolutely irresponsible taking risks driving in snow when the snowplows aren't doing a good job of keeping the streets cleared.

I don't want Ambot to go alone so I'm dumb enough to get in the car. My car by the way. Nail biting drive to the airport but we made it safely.

Another downline IBO wasn't so lucky. He got into an accident on his way to the airport and ended up at the hospital instead.

What risks do these Ambots need to take with their lives to show their devotion to their cult leaders?



  1. Not sure what ambot was thinking. How does meeting the platinum at the airport help build the business? I remember being a teenager going to the airport to meet a famous movie star to get their autograph. But christ sake i dont care if the owner of amway is at the airport. I wouldnt go even if the weather is good.

  2. colin,

    You're too extreme to make any sense.


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.
