Can't Keep Still Any Longer...!

As of late, I have been trying to avoid saying or doing very many negative things. I have avoided bad-mouthing programs that were not following their own rules, people that don't keep their word, and a government or agency that pretends that they care about what the average taxpayer needs.

I have to say that a program I had thought to be one of the better programs I had joined in a long time turned into the biggest joke I have been associated with in a while.. you have to give the admin credit for one thing though, he has come up with some truly creative reasons for NOT paying what he owes!

This guy has come up with what I consider to be the most unique set of excuses I ever heard. I thought I had heard nearly all of them, but credit must be given where credit is due. I now have 4 payments pending with this program, with another soon to follow. I do not expect to see any return from him in the form of a payout, or refund, or partial satisfaction.

The program, of course, is FastProfitSurf...and I truly apologise to the folks that signed up under me with this program.

You see, all of us that work (play) these profit programs on line know going in that the program might fail at any time. We know up front that we should never spend what we cannot afford to lose or play with the rent money. This is a chance we take in this business, and we accept that. What we DON'T expect is to be lied to, mislead, ignored, and disrespected.

If a program admin is having trouble or decides to close his program, as long as they are honest about it we understand. We may not like it, but we understand that this is the nature of the beast. The nature of the work we have decided to do...and all we ask is to be treated as adults with a little respect and truth.

With Truth comes respect...with respect comes understanding...and with understanding comes a following that will be willing to give a second chance to an admin starting another program. When you give up the ability to speak the truth, you sacrifice your right to respect. How can others be expected to respect you if you don't respect yourself or them?

Well...I feel better now that I have that off my chest! Now I am going to have a fresh cup of coffee on the patio! Want to join me?

I have to admit that the main reason I have never joined any of these programs, other than the fact that I have enough trouble just turnig my computer on, is fear of just such actions (?). I know the old saying that "they will get their due" but that doesn't make the lies, etc. any easier to accept, does it.
Enjoy your coffee, get a peanut butter sandwich and have a great day!
Know that you are loved!

HEY Sis...thanks for stopping by. So many programs, so little's a shame that more of them can't be like 10DollarsWonder. Running for about 2 years and still going strong.

Hi Jim...
it's been a little while again since i posted, but i have just caught up with reading and i have to say it was very good stuff, as always. Unfortunatly i did not make it to wish you & your familie a Happy Thanksgiving, but i sure hope you had a good one. Even though we don't celebrate Thanksgiving over here, at least not in the same way or on the same date, i had another reason to celebrate.... my Birthday ;o) It happens to be the 28th, so it's always around or even sometimes on Thanksgiving. ;o)

Enjoy your Sunday,
