A recent comment from yet another World Ventures member has confirmed what I have suspected all along. This one is from Jay, email address: email@example.com, IP address: 188.8.131.52.
“I know all the people you guys mention. Dyna Lim the tution-teacher, Jeremiah Gee the radio dj from Singapore. Each have strength / weakness. Although most of my fren in worldventure not making money at the moment, we have a lot of fun having party, group holiday. Its my cup of tea. Dyna taught us be like the spider, not frog. The frog laugh at the spider for taking long time to build the web to catch insect. The frog can catch insect with its tongue quickly. One day the frog grow old and cannot catch insect fast. The spider could just wait for insects to get trap and eat the insect. So Dyna teach us, other people work 9 to 5 are frog. We are the spider build the web with worldventure, need time to build but in the end we have insect to eat. So althogh now we not making money, we dun nid to worry. Thanks for letting me to share, if there are people who like having party and group holiday, come and build the spider web.”
My reply to Jay:
“Thanks for sharing, Jay! I really support the idea of generating passive income, building a business, throwing parties and having fun. Really. I quit my full-time job to be a blogger! Thing is, I don’t like spinning a web of lies and conning 4 friends to join the organization. Friends don’t spin webs for friends. Can you blame me?”
1) This is the part I cannot understand: “Although most of my fren in worldventure not making money at the moment, we have a lot of fun having party, group holiday. Its my cup of tea.” Ok… so MOST of you guys are NOT making money but are throwing parties and having group holidays. I find this incredibly hard to understand. But it’s your cup of tea, or poison, so I’ll leave you to drink it. CHEERS!
2) This Dyna person is really screwing with your minds huh? “Dyna taught us be like the spider, not frog… We are the spider build the web with worldventure, need time to build but in the end we have insect to eat. So althogh now we not making money, we dun nid to worry.” I DO get the metaphor, trust me. Though I think it is HILARIOUS! I’m coming up with lines like “spinning webs of deceit”, “trapping and killing”, etc. As I have mentioned COUNTLESS times, I am highly uncomfortable with the fact that I have to get 4 other friends to join WV, and that my holidays won’t be cheaper than if I book them myself (proven fact), and group holidays are the WORSE (travel with the blue banner gang? Spare me, please!) In case you THINK you are like the spiders and spinning webs and not making money now, but hoping to get insects in future… WHAT IF people like Dyna are the spiders… and YOU are the insect trapped in the web? 😀 Think about it!
3) I like your parting shot, really. “if there are people who like having party and group holiday, come and build the spider web.” I think you meant to say “If there are people who like to hand over money in the hopes of eventually making some, like to party while not making money, and love holidaying with a bunch of people waving blue banners, AND love either being insects trapped in someone’s web OR spinning webs to trap your friends and make them the “insects” you leech off… join WV!”
Seriously, WV leaders, what in the world are you teaching these guys?!
I need to add one more item to my highly popular ‘5 Reasons Why I Refuse To Join World Ventures‘ blogpost: That Leadership Team.
