After the new terms like Banglored and Shanghaied, I heard someone saying another new word. A friend of mine, who is good at wooing female, has recently wooed a highly educated and beautiful female, despite of being under-gradate and average looking guy. One of my friends given comment on this issue

“He is good at AMWAYing females.”

Well I know what AMWAY is.

I happened to be in COSTCO mall in US when I found a Indian walking towards me. I was happy that an Indian was advancing towards me to have a friendly chat. He spoke for 5 mins and asked to join his business. and no wonder it was AMWAY again !!!
He really didnt mean to make a new friend. He just wanted to expand his business.I had faced this in India when a friend kept forcing me to join AMWAY for over 2 months.

Why AMWAY is wrong?

Following text is derived from above source

Also note that like Scientology, Amway has a history of legally harassing those who would speak out against it, which is another sure sign of a scam.

"Shanghaied" is not a new term. It dates back at least to the 1700's.

I created a new term called "Skylinked". But it is because my golf course, called Skylink's was recently completely redone. It is now really tough, the greens have lots of undulations/breaks/very curvy and hilly, which causes your putting to go really bad. So if you have like a foot putt, hit the ball and it breaks so far as to just lip the edge of the cup and miss, that is being "Skylinked".

Missing a really easy one because of some curve.

Yes, but if you tell others about the "new" magazine, and they had read the magazine decades ago, they will tell you that it's old.

Yes, but if a Henway tries to cross the street, then you can't be sure that it will make it.

My worst ever experience with Amway.

It was night before my birthday. I was sleeping and suddenly my mobile rung. It was sharp 12. I was very excited as I felt that “someone special” has called me. When I pick up the phone, it was a birthday wish call from a person who was forcing me to become a member of Amway.

Just got another SMS message from Amway Marketing Guy:
“No intelligent idea can gain general acceptance unless some stupidity mixed in it. “

I don’t know what he wants to say by this.
