Recycling IBOmobiles

Colin brought up an interesting point when it comes to cars the IBO’s drive. Do they recycle them within the line of sponsorship and sell them to someone else downline or crossline?

I would say that’s highly likely. The IBO’s we knew drove old clunkers that were forever breaking down. In many cases it would have been cheaper to buy another old clunker for a few hundred bucks that get the current IBOmobile repaired. When an IBO was upgrading to another car the word was likely spread via text, Communikate, or Facebook that a vintage 1970’s BMW was available for sale and any IBO’s in the market would have the opportunity to purchase it. With crossline and downline the message could get out to hundreds of IBO’s.

Now I'm all for recycling but when it comes to cars and safety and when is it time to put a clunker out of its misery, sometimes its easier to call the junk man to take the car to the scrap metal plant. He'll probably give the IBO $50 to remove it. But if the IBO can sell it for $100 to an unsuspecting IBO that would be the more profitable route. Make money! Isn't that why everyone is in Amway?

Someone Ambot knows - an acquaintance of one of his relatives - received a car from one of their parents. My memory is a little sketchy if it was his parents or hers. Either way the parents bought a new car and gave them their old car which was a newer model car. That left the couple with a car about 10 years old still in good shape but no longer needed. They decided to sell it for $500 to get a quick sale.

Ambot makes the mistake of alerting the sack of shit Platinum about this car. It might not be a rust bucket 1981 Cadillac preferred choice of IBO’s but its a good buy for a car that's not falling apart and is in running condition. The sack of shit knows a woman who needs a car and they set up a time for her to come out and see the car. Or maybe she decided to buy it sight unseen and a time was set up to exchange the cash and take the car.

At this point you’d think the transaction should now switch to between the buyer and seller and Ambot and the sack of shit Platinum can step out of the picture.

But no, that would be too easy. The woman selling the car phones Ambot to bitch at him that the buyer didn’t show up. So Ambot phones the Platinum and back and forth it goes with the two of them playing the middlemen. And for them it sucks to be the middleman because there is no commission despite all the grief they’re going through. A new time was set up. And the buyer didn’t show up again. And the seller phones to bitch at Ambot again. This scenario played out several times always in my presence. I told Ambot I’d had enough of hearing about that fucking car and didn’t want to hear nothing more about it no more. If the woman who wanted to buy it wasn’t showing up then the seller should advertise it on Craigslist. First person to show up with the cash gets the car.

No. That would be too easy. And the bitch kept phoning Ambot to complain about the buyer not showing up. I mean how many no shows does it take for the seller to get a clue? Apparently she enjoys tormenting me and phoning Ambot to bitch bitch bitch. I told him to pass me the phone and I’d let her have it about her fucking car but he didn’t want me to curse her out. I figure if I curse her out that will be the last we hear from her and good riddance. These people are weird. They live in a nice subdivision built in the 70’s where the houses and yards are neat and tidy except theirs. Their house was painted an oddball color of orange. The front of the house that is. Maybe they ran out of glow in the dark orange paint? The sides and back of the house were three different colors - white on one side, brown at the back, and I think the other side was a shade of tan. She was a hoarder. Ever watch that TV show about hoarders? She might not have been as bad as what I’ve seen on that show but was well on her way. I had the misfortune of going inside the house. Rooms packed high with junk so you couldn’t walk into them or close the door so visitors couldn’t see into them. The kitchen counters had no space left to put anything on them. The sink was 3 feet high with dirty dishes. Junk spilling out of the house into the backyard and they had really weird tacky yard decorations. Not everyone can pull off the used toilet in the front yard as a flower planter look but it was right at home here with the other junk. A whole army of broken roaming gnomes guarded it. There always has to be one house in a neighborhood that’s an eyesore!

Anyway back to the damn car fiasco that goes on for about a month. Finally the Platinum finds a different buyer and the car sale went through.

What really pissed me off the most was that we were no longer doing anything with Amway so why the hell was Ambot playing used car salesman without a commission?

Must have been the same reason he played at being an Amway businessman with no commission.


  1. Incredible! How many Ambots does it take to screw in a light bulb? Three! One to buy the light bulb(Hmmm does Amway even sell them), an upline IBO for the IBO to ask if he can buy the light bulb, a Diamond to tell the IBOs how to screw in the light bulb and provide motivational material so that they are motivated to do so.

    ***Former WWDB Lemming***

  2. My upline diamond was Harimoto and he bought a used Mercedes from one of the Duncans and when he later bought a range rover, he sold the Mercedes to one of his downline platinums, who then sold their car to a downline.

    It's like it was some kind of badge of honor to have your upline download his used car upon you. If those uplines were so danged rich, why didn't they just give the car away?

  3. Lemming - that's pretty funny! I'm going to borrow that! Ha ha!

  4. Joecool - I never thought of it that way that it was a badge of honor to buy your upline's car. Bragging rights!

    You're right. If you're rich why not just give the car away to a deserving person who needs one instead of selling it to the first buyer that comes along.

  5. Feel sorry for your ambot hubby and the crap he has to put up with. Cant he just turn off his cellphone or press ignore?

  6. The phone is his God.

    At least that's better than the Platinum being his God!

  7. Yes, amway used to sell lightbulbs. I'm sure they were marketed (to ibos only) as the BEST lightbulbs on the market today! Yessiree, these babies are positive light bulbs. No negative nellie light bulbs allowed in any ibo home. We'll come a'lookin' to make sure! Oh, and you have to buy to support material to hand out to customers in hopes of selling them to your friends and neighbors. There is no end to the ways they make money from ibos.

    WalMart does not hand out a brochure for every product they sell. Can you imagine? Their parking lots would be overflowing w/garbage. At this point, at least it's only dirty diapers.

    Remember how they used to brag from stage how their upline would come into their homes and they had the right to go thru your entire home to try to find 'Communist' products; and heaven help you if they found any! Off to the gulag
    with you, you low-life-not-sold-out-100% commie!

    Who gives these kinds of people these rights? Would you EVER let anyone else do that in your home? No? But you'll let these self-proclaimed 'leaders' do that kind of demoralizing crap to you? And then brag about the experience?

    This is sick. We really did have decent upline who would never have considered doing such a thing to us. We were always astonished at those who did it.

    This is the United States! No search and seizure allowed w/o a warrant. Funny how these ambots would scream bloody murder if they weren't read their miranda rights, but will welcome an upline to 'rape' their home and give them crap about a possible 'commie' product.

    No cult ideology there, right?


  8. Amway light bulbs - no matter how hard they try they will never light up a room.

    Some of our upline assholes went through our house and pointed out our negative products and tried to throw them out. I told them to fuck off and show me proof that their name is on the deed to our house. Nope, I never got along with any of them. Especially after they tried to chuck out my strawberry shampoo. Get the hell out of my bathtub asshole! They found out really damned fast they weren't welcome in my house.

  9. Most of the people in my team are already well off, which is all the more infuriating when they expect me, a college student, who works part time making $300 a month to spend $600 a month on traveling expenses and crap unnecessary products. But what really used to irk me was when my upline diamond talked about how he and his wife were just getting by when they started amway, doing ok but not that great. He was making about $150,000 and his wife $100,000. I just felt that these people were totally out of touch with most of the world particularly broke, college students.


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.
