How is it that I BARELY graduated from college, and already family is calling trying to get my “help”
I’m all for helping family; I really am, but REALLY???
My uncle calls me @ 10:40pm from an unrecognized number. At first I didn’t want to answer, but I figured it was a family member.
First he spends the first close to 45 minutes talking around and around trying not to give me his identity and “pitch” me Internet ideas. After the charades went away,we started talking… about his “businesses” =/
Which was funny because mid conversation he suggested that I find another field of work (Medicine) so that I will have a job that won’t be outsourced. I get what he’s trying to say, but don’t try to use my “current skills” for your own money.
I posted a status on facebook wondering why this was happening. I expressed my sadness in being unable to just shut this all down. pinkrose16 chimed in with her own opinion.
she felt that “Its easier to trick green, fresh out of college family members into doin something with you. Especially when they have the whole “older respect” power over you (uncle, aunt, grandparent, parent) “
In all honesty, I agree with her. The whole time I was talking to him, he kept reminding me about how I’m a “college graduate” and I “know so much about these things” and how “inexperienced” he is with this. A friend of mine chimed in and thought that maybe I was being pessimistic from the start.
not gonna lie, I’ve heard my fair share of pyramid schemes and I’m still not down. I also tried to let my uncle know that I wasn’t interested, but for some reason he felt he could keep talking to me about it =/
My phone “died” after almost 2hrs of talk. I really don’t want to deal with this. Why is it family members try to talk you into every “get rich quick” scheme they stumble upon. If I knew that graduating from college would but a bulls-eye on my back for these I would have told Momma Blogmaster to NOT tell the family. =/
Am I over-reacting? am I an ungrateful nephew ? in all honesty, I might have heard from him once or twice since I came to college; but now he wants my advice on some websites of his? I think not.
*I would like to apologize for the lack of polish on this blog… just slightly frustrated and tired.
