This is a question Join us... come join the cult

A friend of mine recently floored me with the admission that he'd spent several years in Eastern Europe with the Moonies. And he seemed so normal. Have you or your mates disappeared into a cult? Now that the brain-washing has worn off, tell us all about it.

Amway
Amway must count as a cult. The glazed look you see in the eyes of its adherents scares the crap out of me.

I worked with this guy called Andy who Amway had 'recruited'.

He would tirelessly tell us all about how rich Amway was going to make him, the huge house he would own. He would bore us stupid telling us how he was going to wake us up by driving past our homes in his vintage ferrari etc, etc, etc. All by selling a "few bottles of detergent" (his words).

Suprisingly his life plan didn't actually go that way. Being indoctrinated by the get-filthy-rich by not doing much schemes, he was somewhat surprised when his potential customers (everyone one he knew) didn't want to buy his products. Maybe something to do with him telling us that he would lord it over us scum when he was rich, not the best marketing strategy.

Having been promised easy riches and still in search of something for nothing, he took to crime and started stealing money from work. Being an idiot he was quickly found out and lost his job, his freedom (9 months prison sentence), his wife and his house.

Had he not followed that route he would probably be earning about 40k by now and would still have a home and maybe a wife.

Actually he was always going to lose the wife at some point, as she was continually frustrated by his inability to perform any sexual act other than shagging her armpit. Could have lived my whole life not knowing that fact about a workmate.

EDIT: Someone else I used to work with has recently been released from prison (after being imprisoned for about six months of a nine month sentence for committing fraud). What is it about my workplace?
