The Observations of a Retired Guy about the life I live.
Oct 9, 2010
Our Noah has joined the scouts. He cuts quite a dashing figure.
Now on with my rant.
“One seldom discovers a true believer that is worth knowing”--H.L. Mencken
There is nothing worse to me than someone who believes that he or she has found the answer and needs to share it, especially with me. It's worse when the good news is being shared primarily for the benefit of the sharer.
Our neighbor has decided to start a new business. I shall not mention the name of the company, but it is one of the major multilevel marketing outfits.
She popped over Thursday evening to invite us to a "celebration" party for her new venture. It was last night and we chose not to go. I hope my neighbor isn't too miffed, but that is out of my control.
"Celebration" party is multilevel-speak for a gathering to drag in other people to get involved. No one makes money in multilevel by selling the product. The money is made by finding suckers to work as a part of your organization.
I never mind helping out my neighbor in whatever way I can. Fixing stuff, doing yard work, I'm there. I resent having my friendship imposed upon in this way. Mostly I am sorry that my neighbor would invite us to a party that is really a sales pitch.
Much of the trouble in the world is the result of someone being positive they have found the answer.--Merle Wayne Sneed.
