Here’s a tale from decades ago.
I met this really sweet guy at the discotheque. I was smitten almost immediately. Snappy dresser, too.
He wanted me to meet him the next day at the Borders bookstore. I thought that was a bit strange, because I thought it was going so well that we could have gotten started immediately.
I go to Borders the next day. There he is! We sit down at a table together, and he whips out…. an MLM (multi-level marketing) presentation.
My scalp burned hot with embarrassment, disappointment, and anger. I was pleased that I did not have any weapons with me.
