Thought this might be a funny thread to start after my experience last night. I celebrated a birthday about 10 days ago, and an old acquaintance (played on a sports team together) reached out to me on FB. Said he was back in town after living abroad for a few years, wanted to take me out for a birthday dinner and catch up. So we meet at a restaurant last night, order drinks and he goes "Hey a really interesting opportunity came up, a business seminar that starts in about 40min. Why don't we skip dinner and head over?" -- huuuge red flag. After 10min of questions and his vague bullsh!t answers, he finally reveals that he's hocking some 'World Financial' MLM scheme. I paid for my drink, left and drove home in a fury. After talking to some people, it turns out he's pulled this on basically every one of our old teammates. Really dude? You're gonna trade in your dignity and get ostracized by old friends chasing some measly MLM commission? Jesus. Another one... Years ago, after negotiating a deal for weeks to sell my (now defunct) online business, the dude put 10% of the agreed-upon price in Escrow. He didn't say anything about a payment plan, so I ask him what's this all about? Maybe he made a mistake? He says 'after consulting with his business partner' that he'd revised his offer -- take it or leave it. I was going to use the money to purchase property and had seen a few listings with a real estate agent in the days leading up to the sale. So to get this pathetic last-minute lowball was especially infuriating, because now I'd just wasted this realtors time and probably looked like an douchebag myself. Looking forward to hearing some good stories here.
