Loud and Clear?
A few years ago Ambot and I were eating at a restaurant and three motorcyclists pulled into the parking lot. One of the bikers had a spike instead of a back seat behind him. That message was loud and clear: “No passengers!”
How about the messages we got from our upline? Were they loud and clear?
Every Amway meeting we attended whether it was at someone’s house or an auditorium our sponsor and upline would be hanging around with cell phones plastered to their ears or sending text messages. They’d glance at us and turn their backs. The message is loud and clear: “The other end of my phone is more important than you!”
How loud and clear was it when our arrogant prick sponsor said that even if you don’t make money at Amway you will be a better person from the associations you make from the Amway business and be a better person. And that fucker wasn't the only one who said shit like that.
I mean what the fuck? Why would I want to become a business owner to not make money? Why do I want to become a better person from associating with people in the Amway business? I can become a better person by volunteering at the hospital. And maybe I’m about as nice a person right now as I’ll ever be. I don’t need Amway to show me any more sickening nicey nice.
Is this line our sponsor used loud and clear? “We’ve got something that’s recession proof, are you interested, we can go for coffee.”
No that ain’t loud and clear. Its pretty vague. And I don’t like coffee so fuck off.
How this for another Amway line? “I can’t promise you nothing but would the potential of an extra 70 grand a year interest you?”
Well yeah most people would be interested in an extra 70 grand a year. But the most honest thing you said was not promising nothing. That part comes through loud and clear to me. Nothing in Amway is still nothing except for a whole lot of debt.
How about when our sponsor insulted a prospect of Ambot’s because he’s 45 years old but due to his age he’s a hard sell due to his previous knowledge of Amway.
That’s loud and clear to me too. If the prospect (who is younger than Ambot) is “too old” at 45 THEN SO IS AMBOT!!!!
How come the arrogant prick sponsor isn't getting my message loud and clear? I don't like you and I don't want nothing to do with you!!! How have I failed at communicating that to the arrogant prick for 20+ years??? Or is he just that fucking dense? Or is he nothing more than a fucking troublemaker, accelerated by Amway.
One thing that is loud and clear to me is the number of bloggers and commenters who take to the Internet getting their story out there. Hopefully Amway recruits are doing some research before they plunk down their $150 registration/starter kit fee. It seems that more people do their research after they’ve been involved in Amway for awhile and aren’t making any money to see if there is actually any hope at this business. And then they see it. Story and story about people who have lost money, lost their homes, got into huge debt, divorces all thanks to their involvement in Amway.
The message is loud and clear. Stay away from Amway. It will poison your life.
