Oldest Niece and her husband recently became reps for a MLM that I'd not heard of before. Since ON said she and hub researched it, I researched it as well. What I read did not impress me.
Still, I went to their page and checked it out, but I saw nothing that interested me as far as buying is concerned. Besides, since I'm on a rather limited income at the moment, I don't have a lot of money to spend on gadgets.
ON texted me last week asking if I'd been to their page and asking me to consider getting my next cell-phone contract through them. I tactfully said that I wasn't interested in purchasing anything right now unless her page started selling craft supplies. She said she'd check and see if they would be selling craft supplies in the future. (I was kidding!)
Today I got an e-mail from YN, who said she and her boyfriend have decided to become reps as well! And she was urging me to become a rep, too!
Both of them made a point of saying that they were writing the "pitch" themselves, but I know canned copy when I read it. It was especially obvious with YN's pitch, because she used her sister's full name rather than her nickname. No one calls Oldest by her full name within the family.
First, I'm a little dismayed that both the girls and the guys have gotten involved with what one website called "a legal pyramid scheme." Second, I am not about to become a rep for that place. Third, I don't want to buy anything. YN also mentioned my cell-phone contract (followed by WINK, WINK). (Right now Chip and I have a joint contract, and he doesn't pay for his phone because he uses it for business. He only pays for mine. And the contract isn't going to be up for some time yet.)
What makes the situation even more delicate is, with things not going well between me and Chip, I don't want to alienate the nieces lest they decide to drop out of my life completely.
HELP!! I need more tact and bean dip than I've ever needed in my life!
