Anything For A Buck?

Remember the show Newhart that was on in the 80’s? Larry and his brother Daryl and his other brother Daryl ran a restaurant and a sideline business called "anything for a buck".

Sometimes I think Ambot and I are running a similar side business doing whatever for a buck. One of the joys of being self employed and semi retired is we can leave the shop in the hands of our employees and we can kind of take on impromptu opportunities. Ambot doesn’t like to lose out on a money making opportunity, therefore explains the descent into Amway hell.

Ambot comes home one night after visiting a friend of ours who is a house painter and occasionally he gets large jobs and needs to hire helpers. He’s got the interior of an 8000 square foot house to paint and needs help. So Ambot volunteers that I’ll come work for him. Hunh??? Now how did that happen? Especially since every time we paint a room Ambot bitches at me for doing a shitty job and then he ends up taking over. I don’t think I do all that bad a job painting but I’m not looking to hire myself out as a painter. Oh, I guess I didn’t. Thanks Ambot.

So it takes overnight for the shock of me working for someone else to wear in and in the morning I ask Ambot how much money I’m going to get paid for painting. He said that’s still to be discussed.....

Ambot doesn’t like to miss an opportunity to earn some money so he’s kind of like Larry and Darryl and Darryl. I think that’s what drew him into this whole Amway mess. Having some fucking Amway asshole promising you will be making an extra $1000/month by only working 10 to 15 hours a week is very appealing. Even more appealing when the upline Platinum and Diamond speakers up the ante and say you can earn $80K/year, $100K/year and up and up and up it goes!

So there you have it. Proof that there are better ways than Amway to make money without hardly trying.

"Anything for a buck" and we don't have to rip people off!

And for those of you wondering whether I actually helped paint that house – hell no!

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.
