To have your 30 yr old "child" invite you to meet them so they can tell you some exciting news only to find out it is a sales pitch. Walked in thinking it was mom/son time & saw clipboards around & other people.
Me: Are you trying to sell me something, cause you know I'm not about that? Son: Oh, no - it's really exciting news. Then to sit & watch a DVD & feeling like you are a part of a infomercial. Being told that energy in our state would be deregulated by next year-huh?
That had happened yrs ago which I told the rep. Apparently my son was extremely embarrassed by me as I asked "***" questions & I did not look happy? Really - I made a statement & I was NOT happy to be put in that situation. I guess I was the rotten apple I keep reading about.
Maybe my kid will do well in this as I certainly saw a different side of him the next day. "I am sabotaging him, they are a partner in a 1/2 billion $ business & I don't support them, you hurt me, you clearly did not understand, etc" ...certainly sounded like a sales pitch & my kid should know I would not go for that. So we are not talking to each other now. He also looked like he was possessed during the presentation.
It was scary to watch.
Like a dog looking a piece of raw meat. Scary stuff!
