"Hey, I heard about this job offer, thought you might be interested..."

I'm doing a German language course at the moment and it's usually pretty uneventful and boring, but today something funny happened. One of my classmates tried to rope me into a pyramid scheme.

Apparently he and a friend are going to Serbia later this month to sign up with a firm (who are apparently "already famous" but he wouldn't tell me what they're called) that makes paper packaging which is somehow better quality and twice as cheap as anything made in Germany. He wanted to sign me up too, as "like a sales adviser kind of thing," meaning I'd scout out companies who might be interested in using it and recruit more "sales advisers," who I'd pay with a percentage of my wages, which would be paid from a percentage of his wages. He says I can earn a minimum of around 90,000 euro a year, and possibly up to 400,000.

The only thing I know for sure is that I am in no way stupid enough to fall for this. But what I can't work out is whether or not he is. I can't decide if he's a moron or if he's actively complicit and thinks I'm too dumb to see through him. He's approached other classmates about it too, so I'm also wondering how many of them will get roped into it.

So yeah, just thought I'd share the only interesting thing to happen to me today!

I would have liked for you to bring home that kind of cash though.
How rude of you not to consult me before rejecting the offer.

Maybe he'll make you an offer that you can't refuse.

"All" means "me." But if you like, I could employ you as a sales adviser and pay you a percentage of my earnings.

To be honest, I think it's a wasted opportunity. I've often sat and thought, "sure, wouldn't Conor make a top notch paper packaging sales advisor".



We’ll find a way to fight it, we always have.

Before I started to realise what a bad idea this "job" would be, I have to say, I did kind of think "YES, this is my calling, I was born to sell paper!"

Because both of your icons are so similar I just assumed the OP was talking to themselves for most of the thread and got really confused!



Isn’t it funny how day by day nothing changes but when you look back, everything is different…

you once called your brain a hard drive, well say hello to the virus.

Not the first time we confused people that way. :P
Maybe we need more similar usernames too ... >.>

We could buy a castle by now if he wouldn't be so silly to reject this brilliant business opportunity ...

I got an email from a Nigerian Prince once. Maybe he can help you out.

Marie, I'll pencil in the snow dude for after my meeting with the Prince of Nigeria. Lovely man. People keep telling me that Nigeria doesn't have a monarchy, but if that's the case, why is this man coming to me, claiming to be the prince, and asking me to invest in his campaign to take back his throne? People just don't understand. So suspicious and cynical.

His name is Edward Jitt. Lovely bloke.

The Nigerian fellow sounds stellar. Right sound investment.

I will make sure to visit all of you once I have the money to make a trip to England. And don't say it's not mine Conor. You know how things went with the mug.
