Pyramid Schemes and Birthday Parties


I am the most happy go lucky person you will ever meet. I believe that everyone holds promise of some sort (even if the promise is just that they make me laugh because of their actions).

I am lucky I have a sense of humor.

Man-o-mine comes from a large family. There is approximately one birthday party a month on his side of the family and this weekend was no exception.

Scheduled to start at 2 p.m. I became aware that something was going on at 2:30 when we were asked to pull up our chairs and get prepaired to change our lives. Yes, man-o-mines Aunt and Uncle had discovered a product so versatile, so functional, and so amazing our lives would never be the same.

I came for a bar-b-cue and instead was afflicted with information about how this particlur product increases gas mileage by approximately 7 miles per gallon.

Of course, this wonderful product is not available through stores but only through a licensed dealer, like them.

Luckily, this is a ground floor opportunity for people who are truly adventurous...and not to bright...because, for a couple of thousand dollars you can buy a distributorship. Yippee!

I pondered this ettiquete question all night long and finally decided that Emily Post and Miss Manners would have a stroke if they knew people were now turning birthday parties into franchise opportunities.

Then I remembered the wedding shower I was invited to. A Pampered Chef shower. All I need to bring is cash, the hostess is on commission and the bride elect gets to point out all of the awesome products she wants as her friends grapple to call dibs on the more economical items chosen.

Did I mention that the hostess gets commission?

Is the trend really to get reimbursed for the cost of the party? Is the purpose of a party to make money a profit of friends and family?

Yikes! I'd say, just a tad too crass for me.
