“Are You Indian?”: Amway Stories

Just talked to a friend who just came from “business meeting” about “making easy money” that an acquaintance recently proposed.

You know what that means: Amway!

Random desis used to ask me if I was Indian all of the time when I lived in Philadelphia- once when I was walking in Rittenhouse Square, another time in the University of Pennsylvania bookstore. I quickly learned to emphatically deny my Indian identity and to walk away as quickly as possible.

Until recently, I actually had no idea that being ambushed by Indians trying to push Amway is a fairly normal occurrence all over this great nation of ours. Stuff Indians Like did a post about it here, as did Sepia Mutiny a few years ago.

Do any readers out there have a particularly memorable Amway moment? Post in the comments.
