Is It Silly Season?

10 posts in this topic

Ladies, have you found things have got “strange” over the last couple of months or is it just me? I’ve had far more unusual requests that normal, 2 no shows in the last 2 weeks (and in 10 years I’ve only had one other), a suicide threat from an ex-client and far more hassle from men during enquiry stage when I say I don’t offer what they want (and who aren't happy taking no for an answer). I know I have my retirement in the pipeline but it’s as though something is trying to get me so fed up of things that I leave sooner than later. All very odd :blink:

I'm finding the same thing too, I've just gotten to the point where I have been considering time off. I've also got really fed up of withheld numbers who ignore it when I say I won't be able to accept a booking without a number, and then call on the day still insisting on using a withheld number. They seem to think I'm joking or desperate or something. Last night I downloaded some software to block withhelds and it works, so should make things a lot simpler!

That's right, I always find this time of year is very odd. I'm thinking next year I might holiday sometime in January!

Maybe that roll of toilet paper on the dresser confused him? :-)
