Based on a true life story! My "friend" (read: ex-friend) from school called me up out of the blue the other day to "meet" about this "project". I asked him quite a number of times what this "project" was about, but he refused to tell me, and said I had to see it for myself. Keep in mind I haven't spoken to him in two years, so I assume he's either trying to rob, kidnap or sell me something. Lo and behold he shows up on my door with some random old guy to tell me about this exciting opportunity to blah blah money blah. He started off with "this isn't a pyramid scheme", which basically told me straight off it was a pyramid scheme, then mentioned how the company had been running since 1990, but only had offices in Australia, New Zealand and Malaysia. They were "aiming" to "establish offices" in america and europe. Hey buddy, I think 13 years is enough aiming and it's time to shoot already. Oh wait, they have stricter anti-pyramid scheme laws. How silly of me. Anyway, an hour into this gabberfest (my "friend" hasn't spoken the entire time) the guy breaks out the pyramid part and shows how by recruiting 3 people, I can get $8 a month, getting those 3 to recruit 3 more will put me on the "fast track" and get me "up to" $200 a month, getting those 9 to recruit 9 more of their own will net me $200. And so on until the $40,000 payoff, recruiting 1000 people or so. Of course, it's so easy. Why didn't I think of that. It's so easy. Of course, so is, oh GETTING A REAL JOB. The best part was them trying to get all these people to hand over $500 of their hard earned cash to these soulless jerkfaces. Before they left, they said "Oh, and if you can think of anyone else who'd be interested, just contact us!". Sure buddy, I'll go give you other people to annoy. Glad you thought of me first when you needed suckers to fund your moron scheme. Anyway, that was the last time I'm letting anyone get through a full sales pitch on me. Fuckers.
