Place marking to feed my new morbid fascination.

New thread!

My next door neighbour is a bot! Our kids go to preschool together, we were walking back this morning and I mentioned I was going to the gym as I wanted to lose weight. Straight in with the Juice Plus spiel. I must try and find out how much it costs per month as she was trying to convince me it was better value than the gym which is £83/month for DH and I and includes free crèche and swimming.

Typed this in another thread. You can find the company accounts of any limited company in the UK at the company check website.

A few interesting company accounts for forever living limited companies come up here!

Don't forget #askmehow hmm

I'm surprised there isn't any ex-bots willing to spill the beans on the whole scam thing, would love to get behind the scenes to find out why they are so cultish.

note the email address is timelessive not timelessvie @ yahoo com cos I screwed up teh spelling

£69 for sisterhood does sound inviting.

I wonder what autos ship are/is. I'm relieved to hear I won't be getting any for my £69.

SocksRock Wed 11-Nov-15 21:52:51

Just been to see how much Juice Plus is. My £83/month gym fee sounds like a bloody bargain now!

Also, I reckon JP won't do much for my cardio, like a 7km treadmill run will...

AJF, it was other bots commenting on my flbots announcement. They are not as clever as they think they are.

Annie65 Wed 11-Nov-15 22:50:58

BTW, love all these threads , cant get enough of them grin

cakeisntforsharing Wed 11-Nov-15 22:58:50

Evening all, does anyone mind if I pull up a chair pass round some wine and join? I've got a healthy selection of FL, JP and Younqiue bots myself. This evening my younique bot has drawn all over her face with a sharpie then covered it up with what she claims to be foundation but I've got a sneaky suspicion based on her photos it might be grout.

AJFsmummy Wed 11-Nov-15 23:00:37

Ahh these threads give my FL bitchfix xx

cakeisntforsharing Wed 11-Nov-15 23:06:20

Also here is a handy diagram of all the things aloe can fix.

LittleMissStubborn Wed 11-Nov-15 23:16:43

What's the red line pointing too? or don't I want to know

cakeisntforsharing Wed 11-Nov-15 23:18:51

Little I think that's where the aloe babies come from.

ambler21 Wed 11-Nov-15 23:34:14

lastuseraccount123. Excellent work. Will get sharing. I'm even pondering some guerilla advertising...........
cakeisntforsharing that diagram, ahh hahahaha smile

AJFsmummy Thu 12-Nov-15 00:44:17

That body diagram thing is hilarious.

Stqueen, I've recently escaped mlm. Thankfully I was never one to post loads on fb, this is clearly why I didn't succeed........
