The Executive Branch of Multi-Level Marketing

OK, I'm not bitter against multi-level marketing. I just marvel when my multi-level marketing friends can't read my non-verbal cues of irritation and loathing of their "company."
In the end, I have to tell them this:
"It's not you. It's me. I'd inadvertently ruin your company."
"Nope. Funny thing, I couldn't use some extra cash in just a few hours a day!"

well isn't that why Mary Kay spells D-I-V-O-R-C-E?

I'll have to remember those one liners the next time I am approached! My non-verbal cues aren't read either. Maybe in their training they have to take a course called "How to avoid non-verbal cues". :)

A long time ago I was almost lured in by a company called Cutco. I was turned off when I was told before I can start selling their cutlery (to my friends of course) I have to pay them $140 to buy the knives from them first. I left.

By the way, I really like your tags. Especially, "lose your friends." Funny!
