Many years ago, a roomate, and a friend of mine took me to this,
"really cool meeting"..he would not tell me what it was.
He did mention that I could "make a lot of money" and it was legal.
Being a poor student, I went along..
WE got to the hotel..I was introduced to some guy in a suit..
Who Sprayed me in the mouth with something!!! He friggin shook my hand
, and with the other hand, he shot me in the mouth..with Breath spray..
JEEZ..what a freak...Then he goes " tastes good huh, I only pay 75 cents for these.
why didn't I run? I have no idea..must have been that money thing..
SO we all go, to this large meeting hall..like 500 other people..I sat front and center with my roomate..jeans and a T-shirt, everyone else was in
Business clothes.. This guy comes out, and talks about "circles"..
for over an hour, he draws circles on a white board..drawing lines in between, linking them...There was one BIG circle in the middle...I guess that
was supposed to be "YOU"...I noticed that if you turned that picture of circles, and view it from the side...it looks like a pyramid..with YOU on
About half the people there were hanging on EVERY word this guy said.., nodding their heads, Even clapping sometimes..I'm guessing the other half
were kidnap victims, just like me..disoriented by the minty fresh, pepper spray, just like me..
It took the guy 90 minutes to FINALLY mention AMWAY...
AHA!!! It IS a cult..
So, I grabbed a donut, and a coffee..wandered down the hall of the hotel, and waited for my friend, in the lobby.
His face was red with embarrasement..Even HE didn't know about the
I recovered nicely, when, out of guilt, my friend sprang for a case of cheap beer. All was forgiven..
Yet, AMWAY did NOT give up on me.
A few years later, working part time as an Audio-video salesguy.
I was approached again..Some guy named Doug , he explained to me that he "had his own company"...Like Dougco, or something...
He wanted to show me how I could start MY own comapny.
Stop working for "the man"
This dude was scarier..He, and his wife were stalkers..They showed up at my work, a couple times a week, even waited for me outside..
Not taking no for an answer..I had to physically threaten this guy.
Well, it was me, and my buds from the loading Dock..LOL..
DON'T DO IT!!
