Default Don't be this guy

So I have this cousin, who I barely ever see, let alone speak to. A few months back, out of the blue, he starts messaging me on Facebook. Turns out he and his wife started selling It Works products. Every so often he'll feign interest in whatever the last thing I posted was, and try to use that to segue into an It Works product that would be awesome for me, or try to let me know how awesome it is being an It Works ambassador/salesperson/drone/whatever the hell they call themselves.

Here are a few highlights:

Had a friend once who got into something a bit like that, and wouldn't shut up about it either.

He won't be missed...

I gotta be honest, I don't think it was that bad. I think he could have been way more pushy. But, that being said, it would be annoying.

Everyone I have ever seen selling this stuff is fat and out of shape. They put the big decal on the back window of their vehicle. My neighbor was selling it and she is an overweight, loser with no job. Not judging, just saying I think this type of product attracts lazy people trying to get rich quick.

Their big seller is their body wraps. Basically expensive Saran Wrap that causes overnight water loss. People see immediate results, get happy, then return to sad after the water returns in a couple days. Then they have to buy more wraps, lather, rinse and repeat.....

It's honestly a brilliant money making scheme. Evil. But brilliant.

I think depending how irritating they were I'd probably have put quite a lot of effort into telling them how dangerous and deadly the snake oil they were selling really was. Maybe take an article about thalidomide, find and replace the word "thalidomide" with "It works New You". Print it off, run it through the scanner a few times, send it to them and say "I hope you're not planning in having kids.
