...which is only a waste of time on their part... Some of you know that I don't like my current place of employment. Backstabbing reigns supreme and there is a high turnover to prove that point, as well as a few other factors. I chat to a couple of people there, as I feel in my gut that they are genuine but the rest...my gut (rightly) tells me not to trust and keep at working arms length. One of the girls that works there, young and just starting her career, was someone that is all innocence and sweetness but right from the start I felt there was some fakeness there too but I don't let that get in the way of treating her with respect and courtesy. Most days, she rarely raises a conversation or a hello to me but so what...I just do my job and go home and spend time with my loved ones and that's all that matters. This morning she turned up at the cafe that Josh and I get our morning coffee at, to start our day. She sits down with us and chats about this money making opportunity she has been introduced to and is doing and when we ask what it is...she says "Well, why don't I bring this friend over tonight..we're gonna be in the area". We pressed for details but she refrained saying "Oh, he'll explain it to you better then I could..." Tried to get out of it during the day, declaring the fact that Josh and I were tired and were just gonna get an early night...maybe next time kind thing. Yet, she was adamant "It'll only take half an hour" etc. I thought, I aint gonna bite but ok....I havent been social with anyone from work so let her come around...hang out with us a bit. Josh and I agreed that this smells like a pyramid scheme and we were gonna get the hard sell... She came around with her boyfriend and this older guy and he proceeded to do, you guessed it... "the hard sell". Aint gonna go into details...it was this http://www.acninc.com/acn/us/index.jsp Josh and I were shown a dvd...Oh GOLLY GOSH! Donald Trump is 'endorsing' this...let me get my credit card and sign right up, right now! Yes folks, for $ 500 you too can buy into this 'great opportunity, fire your boss and make tens of thousands by getting other people to sign up to the pyramid! Yes yes folks, you've been told lies...there IS such a thing as quick, fast, easy money... My work mate then tried to tell me that I was the first person she thought of to get me into this because " I don't just consider you a workmate...I consider you my friend..." We have never even been out for a coffee on a lunchbreak... It doesnt bother me that this guy was thinking Josh and I were stooges...just doesnt sit right that she thought I'd actually buy into this AND buy the syrupy " You're my fwiendddd" line. It really sounded so fake that even SHE must've cringed saying it! The guy didnt like that I told him I'd sleep on it and investigate the hell out of it (to indulge him...we were NEVER gonna fall for this). He realized that I wasn't a stooge so his tune changed subtley...but Josh and I picked up on it, amusingly. Now, I have to go sell a bridge to someone. See you when I'm a millionaire!
