The pompous sack of shit Platinum often said “If I don’t like you, I won’t do business with you.” Liar! He’d do business with anyone he could just for the almighty dollar.
A better slogan for him would have been “If I don’t like you and you refuse to do business with me, I’ll destroy your relationship.”
I was at an Amway meeting once where he ranted about one of the fellows in the room. They were in the same car driving back from Family Reunion and the pompous sack of shit spent the 6 or 7 hour drive nagging him to leave his wife because she was holding him back in the business. He would never succeed in Amway as long as he was with his wife. And on and on it went. Platinum was even more outraged when they had a baby without asking his permission if they could start a family.
All I could think of was shut the fuck up asshole. Other people’s private lives are none of your business. Leave them alone. Asking “permission” for stuff going on in their private personal lives? You’ve got to be fucking kidding me! Like I need any further proof that this is a cult leader trying to control other people’s lives!
On the drive home I told Ambot that the sack of shit has no business trying to destroy that couple’s relationship. Not a big surprise to me that Ambot admitted the fucker was trying to convince Ambot to leave me.
After a few unsuccessful months of trying his damnedest to convince Ambot to leave me, the cult leader tried another tactic. I’d quit going to cult meetings and Ambot told me one night the bastard led the group in a prayerfest. He was bitching at Ambot and saying he wasn’t man enough for the Amway business and he didn’t deserve to be married to me because he wasn’t man enough. Tonight the Platinum sack of shit led the Amway meeting into a prayer group, praying that I would find another man and leave Ambot.
And these fanatic cult members wonder why I can’t stand them.
The only good thing that came out of that prayerfest is that Ambot saw the truth of this evil cult and stopped attending Amway meetings.
The Platinum’s reasoning (which he probably learned from his upline) for any man not getting ahead in the Amway business is because his wife is holding him back and he should leave her. If an IBO has a potential prospect and the wife isn’t interested, upline immediately jumps on their pedestal and proclaims its because this couple already has existing problems in their relationship.
The relationship problems only happen after getting involved in Amway. Happy marriages go sour after one spouse gets immersed in the cult and is constantly badgered by the upline to get the PV/BV up there and buy more products to the point of sucking dry the bank accounts and maxing out credit cards. Attend more meetings chasing futile dreams. Put another dollar in. Put a few more thousand dollars in. Got to keep this cult thriving.
Scary. And this is not even a spooky Halloween tale. Its really happening within the Amway cult.
