Is there anything more stupid and insulting than people who say “if I can do it then anyone can”?
Its like they’re implying “I’m such a big fucking moron so if I can do it then anyone who isn’t a fucking moron can. And in the unlikely event that you can’t do it then you’re an even bigger fucking moron than I am!”
Like take that teenage boy who jumped off the Golden Gate Bridge, probably one of the world’s most famous suicide spots. This kid jumps for the hell of it to see if he could. A nearby surfer paddled up to him and got him back to shore and chewed him out the whole way. The kid was relatively unhurt from the jump. So does this teen go around bragging if he can jump off the Golden Gate Bridge and not get hurt then anyone can. He jumped and survived. If he can do it then anyone can. Though I’d go out on a limb here and say the majority of jumpers off the Golden Gate Bridge don’t plan to survive.
What about people who say if I can ride a motorbike then anyone can. Also implying that if they can do it then anyone who can’t has to be a fucking moron. Not everyone has the talent, the balance, the fearlessness, or whatever it takes to ride one those things. Some can. Some can’t. What about people who play football and say if I can do it then anyone can. Same problem. Not everyone has the athletic ability or desire to run around a field chasing a ball and tackling others or ending up on the bottom of a dogpile.
What we used to hear at Amway meetings when the Platinum or Diamonds talked was “if I can do it then anyone can”. I heard it a lot. Also “its so easy anyone can do it”. Yup the implication is there. If you can’t do what I can do even though it is SOOOOOOO easy, and I can do it and I’m already a loser moron, then you have got to be the world’s biggest fucking moron loser!
Not everyone can be a good convincing liar.
Not everyone can bullshit people into believing the reason Amway products are so high priced is because the price reflects the high value/quality of the product.
Not everyone has the qualities to be a good cult leader.
Not everyone can learn brainwashing techniques.
Not everyone is good at pretend games. (I own my own business! I’m a business owner!)
Not everyone can treat other people like shit.
Not everyone is obsessed with money like Amway ambots are.
Not everyone has a high limit on their credit card to keep buying expensive Amway products.
Not everyone has transportation to get them to the endless Amway meetings.
Not everyone enjoys being mocked when they admit they’re with Amway.
Not everyone can destroy other people’s lives walking all over them in their greedy pursuit of material possessions.
“If I can do it, anyone can.”
How about sending out a big fuck you to every Amway cult leader that says that!
Whether or not I “can” isn’t the point.
Not interested in your Amway bullshit so fuck off!
