Not Sniping Prospects at the Mall
If you're looking for something pointless to do, try this.
One night the Platinum sack of shit called a “special meeting” for a select small group of IBO’s. Unfortunately we were on the summons list and met up with other ambots at a mall. The Platinum gave instructions. We had to approach people and ask for directions on how to get somewhere. For example if we saw someone drinking coffee we had to ask them where that coffee shop was located. Or we had to approach random people and ask them if they had a cell phone and if there was there a store in the mall that sold cell phones. That type of thing. There was a thirty minute time limit and we had to get back to the meeting place and have our responses either written down enroute or we could write them down once we got back to show to the Platinum as proof we’d approached people.
The exercise was to randomly start a conversation asking directions because most people are open to assisting others to get them where they need to go. It was kind of funny the man we asked about a cell phone pulled his out and showed us all the features and spent some time telling us about it and where he’d bought it. For all that time spent chatting with him about a phone Ambot never got his phone number!
I suppose this little exercise was to teach us how to approach strangers and strike up a conversation. None of the conversations we had asking for directions expanded to an Amway pitch or asking for a phone number. That wasn’t part of the strike up a conversation exercise.
I think the real point of this exercise was to see who’d be the first ass kisser to bring a coffee back to the Platinum.
Just another way to waste an hour on Amway. Got to fill those 10 to 15 hours a week somehow!
