Really FED (UP!)

On Sunday of Free Enterprise Days we’d slept in because we weren’t attending the church service. Just a little too much cult brainwashing for me to handle. Instead we went for a drive and arrived at the venue’s parking lot around 11:30am, found an excellent parking spot near the exit to beat the rush out of there at the end of the day, and sat in the car for a bit because the service was still on and IBO’s weren’t being let in yet for the afternoon FED session.

Ambot’s cell phone chirps indicating he’s received a text message from some asshole upline. Ignore it, I tell him. He checks his phone anyway and turns out the text is from his arrogant prick sponsor, aka Captain Fuck Up.

He tells Ambot that the pompous sack of shit Platinum has called a very important meeting that all downline must attend at his hotel lobby near the stairs. We have to be there at 11:45am and the time right now is about 11:42am.

The hotel is several minutes drive away, ironically we’d just driven past it within the past 20 minutes. Ambot’s all in a panic. WE MUST GET THERE!

He refused to listen to my voice of reason that it didn’t sound logical. First off the hotel check out time had already passed - why would they hang around the hotel. Second the sack of shit was very religious and unlikely to miss the morning church service. Third the sack of shit had made it a big point out of saying due to being Platinum he had the honor of helping out backstage during the church service. Fourth, if he was already here at the arena for the church service, why would the sack of shit drive all the way back to his hotel that he’d already check out of instead of holding his “very important meeting” (better known as a bullshit brainwashing session) at the arena.

But Ambot refused to listen to me that they were probably already in or around the auditorium. I wanted to stay where we were. Instead Ambot breaks the speed limit getting to the hotel, runs faster than I’ve ever seen him move, easily outdistancing me. I catch up to him in the hotel lobby. He is frantically running around looking for other IBO’s. He opens up the staircase doors thinking they might be holding their meeting in the fire exit. He’s badgering hotel employees if they’ve seen his beloved upline.

He is really agitated that he can’t find anyone and eventually we return to the venue. The good parking spot I’d scored earlier is now taken. We walk across the parking lot and on the lawn in front of the auditorium we see our group gathered around the hallowed cult leader and Ambot sprints to join them.

It turns out the arrogant prick sent Ambot a fake text message having him run all over town on a wild goose chase just so he could have a good giggle. Fuck you jerk!

Yup. These are people I really want to do business with.


  1. Why did you even attend the function?

  2. Because the cult leader bitched at Ambot and he begged me into going so it would make him look good. Captain Fuck Up's wife did not accompany him so Ambot probably got extra brownie points because I did. I like driving, going on road trips, eating out at restaurants, staying in motels, shopping, sightseeing. Too bad we had to spoil it by going to an Amway function and being around people I can't stand.

  3. You and ambot could have also played a pratical joke on the asshole platinum. Having him run around just for your amusement. Your ambot hubby should have given the asshole a good old fashion beating for this

  4. Did you do or say anything while there the upline didn't like?

  5. Maybe not at that particular function because I don't really recall seeing them that much. I'm sure they were ticked off I didn't go to the night owls. Generally speaking the upline did not like me.

  6. Anna, If i where your upline id rather have you not go to any events. Your negativity is poison to the group and their wives.

  7. Are you speaking of a previous year's FED?

    My WWDB Ambot friends have told that the event has shrunk from many locations to just two... beginning tonight in Portland and next week in Denver.

  8. I don't have to ask why they didn't like you! LOL

  9. Colin, if you were my upline you would have probably been smart enough not to sponsor anyone who's spouse was not interested in getting involved in Amway again and could spell Trouble with a capital T. My greedy upline was more interested in the money than steering me away from events. Besides they couldn't tell the difference between negativity and the truth.

  10. Anonymous, this was a few years ago. I'm just reliving my favorite bad memories! I bet the IBO's from other parts of the country just love having the choice between 2 relatively western cities.

  11. Tex, they really don't like me now! The money tree dried up on them!

  12. Anna,

    I'm sure they are growing other branches on their money tree, that's why I'm cutting them off at the ground.


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.
