I think you've hit on what I really don't like about MLMs. They are the cause of so many awkward conversations. For instance, I was having some health concerns, and my neighbor came over to ask how I was doing. She sounded very interested and sympathetic, and then she launched into a discussion of this awesome juice she sells and how it cures everything. I was left wondering if she really cared how I felt, or if she just wanted to sell me some juice.
