The Pants Don’t Fit!

Remember when Amway was selling clothes a few years ago?

I bought a swimsuit that was pretty decent so I can say that I actually bought one product that Amway sells that I liked. Hell, I liked that swimsuit so much that if Amway still sold them I might have bought another one.

Not the same story for a pair of pants that Ambot bought for me which I didn’t really want, but you know all the bullshit upline plugs into you about buy from your own store.... I’m a size 6 but depending on the cut I could be up or down a size, so Ambot started with a size 6 pair of pants. Just a regular looking pair of casual pants. May have had a checker or houndstooth pattern to them. I tried them on. Couldn’t fasten them up, too tight in the waist. Ambot sent them back and exchanged for a size 8. Same problem. Too tight in the waist. Couldn’t fasten them. Ambot wants to exchange for the next size up. I tell him forget it. The pants aren’t that great anyway. But he doesn’t listen and one day he presents me with a size 10 pair of pants. I’m not happy but I try them on and like the other pairs they are exactly the same waist size as the other two smaller pairs - too tight and won’t fasten. I tell him there is obviously a problem with Amway’s clothing line. Normally when you buy larger clothing sizes they are, well larger, and a looser fit than the size down. If I put on a size 10 pair of pants normally they’d be sliding right off me. Every single one of these pants had the same waist size that I’m guessing was about a size 2, although as the sizes went up the hips and thighs were roomier.

Um, here’s a big clue Amway. When a clothing size number goes up, all dimensions have to change. You can’t leave the waist a tiny size and make the hips larger as the size numbers go higher. Perhaps this is why Amway is no longer in the business of selling clothing?

But Ambot is determined. He exchanges the pants again and presents me with a size 12. You guessed it, they were too small too. I thought that would be the end of it until he shows up with a size 14.

“Forget it!” I tell him. “I am not going to try those damn pants on again! It doesn’t matter what size you get they’ll never fit!”

Men clearly don’t get it when it comes to women’s clothing sizes.

Finally Ambot gets a clue that I am not going to wear a piece of clothing in the double digit sizes and gets a refund. And our upline loses some bonus points.


  1. Just proves how brainwashed your hubby is at that time. Most people would never buy clothes from them. I can guarantee you that he would have had a hard time getting a refund on the clothes u didnt like. The upline diamond/platinum etc would lose volume which they hate.

  2. Ambot exchanged those pants so many times that Amway must have got tired of dealing with him and finally gave him a refund. I'm sure it was just another excuse for the Platinum to bitch at him.


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.
