Trade Show At Amway WWDB Family Reunion

When we arrived at the hotel we stayed at during Amway WWDB Family Reunion we barely checked in and put our bags in the room when Ambot wanted to haul ass over to the convention arena because something was going on - meaning Amway products would be out on display. For lack of anything else to describe it I’d call it a trade show but that is using the term very loosely.

Now I’ve been to real trade shows. They usually revolve around a theme: boats, home & gardening, RV’s, etc. Trade shows are usually held in fairgrounds because there are usually exhibition halls or ice rinks (no ice), etc that can be converted into trade shows and plenty of parking. There are usually a couple of hundred exhibitors, maybe more depending on the venue. Usually the people who rent booths at these events either provide products or services roughly related to the theme of the trade show. However there are always the usual suspects who show up at these events even though what they’re selling has nothing to do with the theme. There will probably be booths selling nuts or fudge or cotton candy, probably some realtors have booths, maybe some tourism bureaus from other towns, and usually some MLM’s like Mary Kay will be flogging their wares. I have never seen Amway represented at any trade show. Whew!

OK so we bust our asses getting to the arena so we can partake of the world’s most awesome Amway trade show. Its a not to be missed extravaganza for serious business builders.

Ha ha! This was the shittiest, sorriest excuse for a trade show I’ve ever seen in my life. Well what else do you expect from Amway? There were only a few booths, maybe 10. One of them had Perfect Water dispensed in dixie cups. Artistry was there and they had little sample packs of face cream. You know the use it once kind. Someone from XS Gear was there with their products. This is where Ambot ran into trouble with getting rippedoff by XS Gear. He got the guy’s business card and decided to be their best customer but it didn’t work out so well.

I don’t remember what else was there. I know it took less than 20 minutes to see everything. Pretty shitty. Surprisingly enough there weren’t the hoards of brainwashed ambots you’d expect to see here. There were maybe a hundred people and that includes IBO’s and the exhibitors standing behind the tables. Of course due to the shitty exhibits it only took minutes to see it all so its very possible IBO’s were trailing in and out over the 2 or 3 hours it was open. So there could have been another couple of hundred IBO’s viewing the trade show before and after we got there.

There was the Amway registration desk and we could pick up our “kit” - as I recall a ticket on a string that we hung around our necks. There was also early bird parking passes for the weekend for sale. A real screaming deal at $20. Only available to the poor suckers who showed up at the trade show. And yes Ambot bought one.

Shitty trade show aside going inside that arena brings back another memory.

Prior to our departure I’d been looking around to buy a cappuccino machine with all the bells and whistles and I brought an extra $200 cash with me because I thought I might find one on sale this weekend. I’d seen an ad at JC Penney with a one day Saturday sale and even though we’d be out of town I thought I could still find one while attending Family Reunion. The problem is big mouth Ambot blabs to everyone and anyone that we had extra money with us. Captain Fuck Up’s sponsor - Asshole Eagle - was at the trade show plus a few other losers in his downline. Like its any of their fucking business how much money we happen to have on hand! I was pissed off at Ambot because these kids in their 20’s probably didn’t even bring enough money to buy meals and would likely hit us up for a loan that they wouldn’t repay.

Apparently one of the people in Asshole Eagle’s downline claimed he bought his Family Reunion ticket online at the last minute. Except when he checked in at the registration desk they had no record of it. So there he was stuck at Family Reunion with no cash, a maxed out credit card, and no ticket. Because Ambot had conveniently blabbed about the extra cash Asshole Eagle asked him to buy the Family Reunion ticket for his downline and he’d get his money back once they got it all straightened out. Because Ambot has been brainwashed to “submit to upline” even though the fucking asshole is about 25 years younger than him he willing to fork over the cash. The problem is the cashola is in my purse so now he has to beg me for the money. I am pissed. I have the cash earmarked for the cappuccino machine. Their problems aren’t my problems. But because I am such a kindhearted soul I finally agree the bastard can borrow the money.

Ended up buying a $30 Mr Coffee machine instead. Brought it into action a few times when we tried to trick people into coming over for coffee klatches when it was really an Amway event in disguise. Nobody every showed up anyway. What? Nobody likes lattes?


  1. Why the bloody fuck would your husband tell somebody else that you have extra money in your purse? Is he a compulsive blabbermouth or something?

    The idea of Captain Fuck Up telling Ambot to tell you to give money to some goddamned stranger is utterly beyond the pale. What is WRONG with these Amway assholes? If Captain Fuck Up was this bigshot successful Amway up-line, why the goddamned hell didn't HE give money to the stranger? Why should he ask you and Ambot to do it?

    1. Anonymous - it's just the Amway culture where Ambots brag about everything. We'd taken cash with us when we're more likely to use plastic so Ambot told everyone how much we had with us. Like what the fuck! When you go out socially do you tell everyone else at the table how much cash you brought with you.

      Captain Fuck Up wasn't there. He'd lost his cash. Though you might think it kind of convenient that I had cash! I only wish it was his cash I found. It was someone further upline this fucking asshole Eagle. Or so he claimed to be. I think he signed up a bunch of relatives who did nothing. But yeah if he's some hot shot Eagle making big bucks in Amway why didn't he give money to someone in his downline. That's exactly my point. All these Amway assholes brag about how good business is going and I'm the only one who has cash on me. Why the fuck did I have to give my money to some stranger? Probably only because Ambot would get a shit kicking from the fucking assholes in the Amway upline if we held on to our cash. And this all could have been avoided if he didn't blab about it in the first place. It's not like he blabs about how much money we're carrying normally. Now there's a recipe to be mugged. Only when it came to Amway he did fucking stupid shit.

  2. I laughed my ass off reading this post and many of your other entries. I work closely with an Ambot (we work a normal 8-5 office job but she swears she’ll retire in 2 years and looks down on me when I remark how much I enjoy what we do) and reading your blog helps me deal with her shit. Love your style of writing and just wanted to say thank you.

    1. Hi Liz. Glad you’re enjoying the blog. We aim to entertain as well as educate! Thanks for reading.

      All Amway Ambots claim they’ll retire in 2 to 5 years but even those at the top of the pyramid still have to lead cult meetings and bully their followers into buying more Amway shit and investing in the tool scam otherwise their income dries up. Have you read Merchants of Deception yet? There’s a link on the right side of this page under more info about Amway. It’s a free ebook that will keep you up all night reading this Amway horror story. It’ll help you understand the Amway cult your coworker is in.

    2. This is one of Amway's biggest lies. Even if you somehow manage to make it to the top, you will still be busy "building the business".

    3. Unknown - like most pyramid schemes you have to get in Amway early enough to make any money. And no one ever "retires" even if they make it to the top. They have to keep leading Amway cult meetings and brainwashing the downline to keep buying more Amway shit and investing in the tool scam. If the Amway cult leaders stopped showing up to bully the masses, the downline would stop buying and the income for those at the top would shrivel away. That's why you see the same old tired crew at every Amway function. They can't stop if they want the money to keep rolling in.

  3. Official Amway literature now tells persons to NOT mention the phrase "residual income" when trying to recruit new IBOs. They don't want to deal with the legal ramifications that might happen in a future lawsuit.

    The reason? Very simple -- there IS NO FUCKING RESIDUAL INCOME in Amway! None at all.

    1. Hi Anonymous - actually Amway has been saying this for years. About 10 years ago they had a blog. Guess it didn't do too well cause I don't think they have anyone blogging now. 10 years ago the person doing that blog was responding to questions and the residual income came up. She or he said that the IBO or the person leading an Amway cult meeting shouldn't be promising residual income because it just isn't true.

      The thing is Amway commissioned sales reps don't give a flying fuck about violating Amway's policies that's whey they promise bazillions of dollars in residual income will be flowing in every month for the rest of your lives after 2 to 5 years of working part time 10 to 15 hours a week.

      Here are a couple of Amway rules we see Amway Ambots constantly violating around here and other places online:

      Code of Ethics
      As IBOs, we are committed to conducting our
      businesses according to the following principles:
      • We will follow not only the letter of the Rules of Conduct, but also the spirit of the Rules.
      • We will conduct ourselves in such a manner as to
      reflect only the highest standards of integrity, honesty, and responsibility because we recognize that our actions as IBOs have far-reaching effects, not only on our own businesses, but on that of other IBOs as well

      An IBO complies with the letter and spirit of the Rules of Conduct, laws, and regulations in any market the IBO has a presence, and demonstrates cultural sensitivity given market conditions; and

      An IBO doesn’t defend or support the conduct of
      others who don’t comply with this criteria

      But you're right - there IS NO FUCKING RESIDUAL INCOME in Amway! None at all.

      That's just a game Ambots play while pretending to be real business owners.


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.
