If you are a dedicated punter then nothing will stop you punting, everyone's got two feet. :)

We had 2 cancellations because of the tube, and getting taxis was a right chore too.

The daytime made the punting slow but where the workers were staying hotels at the night for the following day we had alot of lonely punters so the night was very busy :)

Was meant to be seeing Magan at House of Divine today, but turned up at 1pm & was told that she is not working, why didn't they tell me this when i confirmed at 11.30am this morning. Was offered a lady by the name of Chloe instead! Very poor management indeed!

We 'the management' contacted Megan yesterday and asked her to confirm she would be in. She confirmed at the time, however at 4:47 am this morning she text us to say she would not be coming in as she felt dizzy. As this was the third time she had let us down at short notice she was told we could no longer accommodate her.

She was removed from the website and the schedule at 5:30 am this morning. A notice was put on our Twitter feed three times before 10 am this morning. It is company policy that all clients are told to confirm their appointments between 10 am and 11 am on the day, this has been the case since we opened in South Kensington. It is standard practice for any client not calling before 11am to have his appointment cancelled and booked over.

Today the maid, 'Rihanna' was told to apologise to all clients confirming their respective appointments with Megan and explain the situation, then of course let the client know of the availability with either Bianca and Chloe if they wished to re-book their appointments with them instead.

Please PM us if you wish to discuss this further as it would appear you feel the maid has not followed company protocol on this occasion and not something either of us need to bore the majority of the forum with.

Thank you.

She told every single person that phoned up and explained in full that Megan had pulled out at the last minute, who was now available instead and gave full descriptions. She was very apologetic to all and followed the "protocol" of the day to the letter.xxx

Brums turn on Sunday with the popes visit. Hagley road (Where most of the punting action takes place) is closed.

Harumph!

I wonder if he punts, and where he would go in Birmingham. Newspaper headlines:-

"Pontiff Ponders Punting Potential"

and then after he has suffered from "Bait and Switch":-

"This paper proudly presents the present Papal pros and cons of pros and cons."

I'll get my coat. Check please.

Yesterday i booked to see the new lady Roberta, as advertised on your website. When i turned up i was offered a lady called Jessie, who looked nothing like Roberta! Is it me or has Mumford Highlighted this kind of thing before on this thread? I'm starting to notice a pattern, & having been duped myself, after getting all excited about seeing Roberta, I am very disappointed!

There is no trend. The previous man booked to see Megan she did not show up and he was told this on confirmation. She was taken off the rota at 5.40am and as you know everyone has to confirm before 11am so he would have been told.

Roberta was turned away as she had no ID, spoke hardly any English and Looked nothing like her photos. Jessie turned covered at short notice as the maid explained to you when you called.

We are not trying to dupe people in his case we were not sure of the girls legal status in the country and will not take a chance for the sake of a handful of pre bookings we do this for everyone's benefit the girl included. It was obvious that the person talking on the phone and the person texting was not the girl who turned up therefore someone was making those calls and texts for her, which would imply that as she was also not able to produce documents that something was not quite right.

Megan also failed to show the other week for a booking I had made, however when I called at 11am I was informed by the maid and therefore nothing more I could expect of 'the management'.. For reference I have been to hodsk 4 times and cannot speak highly enough of the service on every level, unfortualtely not everyone in life can be as reliable as you and I !!

Surely you must have known this when you interviewed her for the job?

No Steve we didn't interview her. She came recommended by Lucia, she had a genuine Porn site with lots of detail. Sent her pics, had various conversations and seemed all OK. What turned up was not the person in the pictures or indeed who had been on the other end of the phone.

We have girls travelling from Manchester, Cardiff, Northampton etc most of the time we do not interview as girls normally have a rep that come to us. Girls normally get a little freaked out I find when you ask them to come in for an interview as most companies do not work that way. I guess they are concerned that it could be the good old fashioned casting couch trick that some male owners like to use.
