Silly Mistakes I Have Made

This is open for all to contribute, and is intended to cover the serious and the silly, from the wardrobe malfunction, to the trip to A & E.

A mistake I made a few years ago occurred when I was travelling for a first time visit with this particular indie. Everything had been fixed up and was on track except that I realised I was going to arrive early. No problem I thought, so with an hour to go to, I phoned and asked if I could arrive half an hour early. As I now realise this is the perfect way to fluster a WG, and throw everything into chaos. I think she was just about to wash her hair and dry it etc. and she mentioned that she still needed to pop out to get some milk. Anyway, I agreed that it would arrive later, and would phone again. I did my best to dawdle and kill time, and on reaching the destination popped into a local shop and bought some milk before turning up. By now the WG was ready, but hadn't been out for milk so my "present" was welcomed, and what had been a rocky start improved from there :)

This being expected to arrive on perfect is still one that baffles me to some extent. Yea, I realize its not on to arrive 30 mins early or late.... but at times 5 mins early or late seems to be a big issue. Come on... its not that easy to get somewhere you've never been before to exact minute.

Clangers I dropped when first starting out as a punter:-

1/ Going through with a bait and switch. (The lady was actually very skilled, enjoyed punt... but she wasn't as per photo, and was not my type.) Now, I'd just walk away immediately.

2/ Not realizing that an agreed time and date needs re-confirming close to time of punt. To me.. in "normal life"... if you make an appointment you keep it UNLESS you contact other person to tell them you can't. (I travelled long distances a couple of times to be "Rewarded" with a no show.)

Some mistakes I've made:

1.Not being aware that some WG's will completely lie about their age and not just by a couple of years. I no longer book anyone who say's they are over 26.....I would consider seeing women up to 35 (real age)

2.Not using an envelope to put the payment in and hand to the girl. I once pulled a roll of cash out of my pocket and handed it over, I didn't realise that some of the notes had remained in my pocket and I was light by £40. It gets the punt off to a very bad start for obvious reasons!

3.Clipping my finger nails down and leaving a sharp tag on one, then deciding I need a pee, ten mins before she is due to arrive. Hand went down pants to get the fella out and I sragg myself with said finger nail, resulting in what looked like a 2 inch long paper cut on my penis...no OWO for me! I now own a nail file!

4. Not owning a satnav, only made this mistake the once....would/could not see girls for incalls without one!

The biggest mistake I have made has been to delay visiting some very special ladies who I should have seen years ago and thus become a regular possibly. There are 2 or3 that still stand out in my memory and I wish I had seen them when I was still young and virile.

2.Not using an envelope to put the payment in and hand to the girl. I once pulled a roll of cash out of my pocket and handed it over, I didn't realise that some of the notes had remained in my pocket and I was light by £40. It gets the punt off to a very bad start for obvious reasons!

Personally I've never handed money over in an envelope!! I always count the notes out and put them in a seperate pocket to just hand over.

But then again, I generally only see girls I have seen before so they know that even if I was ever to hand over the wrong amount (not happened yet but always a possibility) then I'll probably be back again sometime soon to correct it

My only mistake I can think of was letting a friend know about my punting, he was going through a bad patch at the time as had been a few years without sex and was just a tad frustrated. I took him to see some local ladies and his happiness and confidence went up some. I didn't think much of it until I found out that he didn't have the same ideas about confidentiality and secrecy as myself and had told lots of his friends that he had gone to see prostitutes. Now this is completely up to him who he tells about his own activities but he also informed all and sundry exactly who it was who had told him about punting and who had taken him to see the ladies, ie. me.

At the moment all the people he has told have been people I don't actually know, but there is always the chance he could tell people very close to me

There have been lots of silly mistakes along the way, many of which I can laugh about now but the worst one was similar to Lord Melchett. I told a couple of work colleagues who I had known for many years and were also very close friends. At the time I was very bored and frustrated with my work and every other aspect of life. I had felt at a complete loss and discovering this "hobby" was a life saver. However, I didn't swear them to secrecy and it soon became common knowledge. I'm single so there were no serious repercussions but, of course, people can be very judgemental and, whilst I never had too many unfair comments passed, I'm sure some were less than complimentary behind my back.

I worked at a large international airport which obviously has lots of female employees and it may have caused problems should I have wanted a relationship with one of them. Thinking back, some may have thought I was a complete sleazebag and wouldn't have touched me with a barge pole. You just don't know about what different attitudes are out there and, in hindsight it would have been better to have been a bit more discreet.

Unfortunately JD the number of guys who book, then change their minds on the day is quite high plus there are occasions very specific to the 'punting scene', that can arise making attendance and communication with a WG impossible. Things like say a chap is ill or injured, can't phone to cancel (might be in hospital without his second phone) and can't ask a friend to do so either!!!!The number of chaps who don't let you know they can't make it are quite high, hence the confirmation procedure. Also allows for said WG to explain any problems that make appointments difficult that day also - once again a lot of situations can make seeing clients impossible, yet wouldn't affect any other line of arrangement.

Some mistakes I've made:

1.Not being aware that some WG's will completely lie about their age and not just by a couple of years. I no longer book anyone who say's they are over 26.....I would consider seeing women up to 35 (real age)

4. Not owning a satnav, only made this mistake the once....would/could not see girls for incalls without one!

Number 2, I'm afraid I always state my true age and say if I'm not the age I say, then you can have your appointment for free. I am however now 36, so out of your age range.

Strawberry,

Hi. Made original posting just before I had to walk into town to meet a few mates. Had a think on way into about why "re-confirming appointment" is needed in punting as opposed to "normal life". I think your points are very pertinent, and now fully agree with them. (But.. still I bet I'm not the only punter that's made this particular mistake in their early punting career.)

Another thing I wish I'd done much earlier is vary the appointment lengths to see what suited me best.

( Initially I booked 1 hour appointments only... almost as no other length was worth thinking about. Eventually tried 30 mins, two hours, etc... and came to blindingly obvious conclusion that different lengths had different advantages. Usually find I get a lot more out of one two hour meeting than 2 one hour, or four half hour appointments. Clearly other guys would come to a different conclusion... but I'd suggest to anybody... vary meeting times early on... and find out what suits you best. )

I wasn't criticising you and hopefully our posts will show that WGs aren't being unreasonable.

I have had clients forget to confirm, some confirm many hours later giving a variety of reasons. If I can see them I will, however some have lost out and have gotten quite funny about it. The other interesting thing I find is when he doesn't confirm, then rings/texts several hours later or just before the appointment time to say "Sorry I can't make it today".

That implies that they had doubts earlier on in the day, and must have surely had an idea they wouldn't make it!

Brought her the milk, lol. then gave her your cream.

Well the milk was an essential ingredient for the pre-bedroom cup of tea and cake :P

Btw, she was no clockwatcher, and she freely gave me over the allotted amount of bedroom time :)

In answer to Kid A

1. Finding out that you are old enough to be the escorts father/grandfather. I no longer book anyone (with certain exceptions) who is half my age (ie 40 or younger).

2. I always pay in Scottish notes (unless I'm in Scotland) - they are so appreciated by the normal WG. If you're £5 or £10 short raid the small change tin/bottle. Endless amusement can be had by tipping this on the bed and demanding your chosen lady counts it out in front of you.

3. Always carry that nail file with you. It helps to ward off any dissatsified WG who you accuse of either being over 40 or who objects to counting 100 x 10p pieces.

4. Use a map; this will give your hours of endless amusement consulting it on estates where all the roads end in cul-de-sacs. Always park across someone's drive; remember that this is a minor inconvenience compared to you finding the house number. Finally always write down/check the number; next-door neighbours like you calling round and shouting through the door "What time's the lesbian show??" as happened at an address in the past. This advice is especially useful if you've either blocked their drive or worse still parked on the paved area immediately in front of the door.

Bless me father, for I have sinned ;) .

I once (back in the days when I was learning the ropes) booked a girl from the other site who had hidden her feedback. I won't make that mistake again. Talk about half-hearted and disinterested !!! Maybe some girls might have a genuine reason for doing this, but I won't take that risk any more.

I never take anything more than the punt price and my mobile into a punt with me.

I neatly fold the counted crisp, freshly printed £20 notes 3 ways and pop them into my pocket and hand them over before, or sometimes after the punt.

I have never seen any WG count or check the amount either [must have a trustworthy face I suppose, or they are experts at working it out!]

Personally I would feel very strange walking in and pulling out an envelope to hand to the girl... seems a bit old fashioned in a 'bowler hat' sort of way to me !

Silliest mistake I ever made was booking for the first time wwith one particular indie ...She gave me rough directions to her flat and promised final directions when I got closer.Fair enough,but I forgot to charge up my mobile phone.I contacted her when I was in the approximate area and ,of course as she started giving directions my phone died on me.Managed to contact her again after a few mins but again, phone died.Of course,no public telephone boxes these days,so had to drive home,ring her on my landline to apologise and make another appointment for the following day.Mobile always topped up since then........(stupid boy) as Captain Mainwaring would say.

Called a local girl once asking "Are you free?", she replied "I most certainly aren't free." and hung up on me. I meant was she available immediately? She obviously thought me a time waster.

Alternatively she may have thought you were John Inman and presumed she could do nothing for you!

Mine was not waiting at a particular place for my usual WG, choosing the other who wasn't as good (though not for lack of effort) and then when I next visited she had left after a strop with the boss there.

This is why I really am averse to making bookings with anyone who wishes to use a phone box. As you say there aren't many of the blighters around now that most people don't need to use them.

Having the kind of strange mind that picks up on these things, I have spent the last ten minutes trying to work out which three ways you fold the notes. Please put me out of my misery.

Also I am intrigued and slightly perturbed by the use of the phrase 'freshly -printed'....

When someone asks me that on the Phone I tend to say "Darling, I'm never actually 'free' " and then laugh...it usually breaks the ice...and then they laugh and say "I meant are you available"...

I don't actually ask the Guys to confirm a Booking, but thats probably because most of the time they only book me an hour or two ahead of time...

The silly mistake I made was in the early 80's as a young teenager going to a clip joint in soho. Big bruiser was not happy with me when I decided that I was not going to pay 60 quid for the girls glass of wine.

I was forcibly removed from premises and warned not to go back.

Ahhh the good old days
