Besides making me laugh like an hyena with graping pains this LOL reminds me of something that happened last week on my job. I was there, taking a break and chatting with colleagues when suddenly comes this coworker with whom I have not so much intimacy and approaches me asking if I have any appointments after work. As some people had told me some months before, in a very secretly way, that they were enlisted by her to join a seminar of a company that does direct selling of its products I’ve said, with a sheer look of apathy, the truth: I would go to the gym. As she heard my answer she looked to me like she was saying “you silly cunt”. But she made one last attempt tolding me with a grave expression that “it could be the chance of a life”. I could have owned this entire conversation telling her that, hey, the chance of my life would be arriving at home just to find Ryan Reynolds, sporting his über sexiness, laying on my bed with a “come to me I’ll take care of you” look on his face but it would be in vain – she would not even know of whom I was talking about. So I simply returned her a smile of complete disregard and resumed the enjoyment of my lunch. Yes, I could have been a bit more gentle pretending some kind of interest and gratitude but I hugely despise this cult-like behaviour that people have regarding these companies. And this one in particular resembles even more a religious cult because everything it sells is made of Aloe Vera, like if it was the youth elixir – even Amway deserves more respect since it does not have such a Santo Daime belief.
