A Little Rant

28 posts in this topic

Sorry, I had to post this.

I just got a call from a landline - I generally don't answer them but I have a couple of semi-regulars who call me from landlines and I thought it could be one of them.

Well, it wasn't. It was some twat trying to get me to advertise in their escort magazine and offered me a free feature if I would. I detest those types of calls - it's annoying and a waste of my time.

So I explained to him nicely that I am not an escort, that I am a sensual mcassage provider, and I tend not to advertise anywhere that is strictly escort adverts bc it confuses the guys about what it is I offer. He then got smarmy with me and was like "oh, well you're website is very misleading." Ha! I specifically state on my site more than once that I am not an escort and provide only massage w/ hr.

Did he think that by being a dick to me, it would make me change my mind about advertising with them? Some people.....*smh*

Sounds like a right arsehole. I loved the idea i read on here about having a whistle to hand for cold callers, give them that down the phone, at present i just tell cold callers politely that i am not interested unless i am of course and if they persist which happens sometimes i tell them to fuck off, obviously not advising others to do that though. :)

I know, it's so annoying. Cold calling and the people on the street who want to sell you things. It just doesn't work on me. If I wanted to buy something, I would. Some twat on the street standing in my way is not going to make me suddenly realise I wanted to buy that useless thing after all.

Yes we have had them call in the past from various publications. I tend to ask what their demograph is, what their circulation is, who stocks their magazine, how many are sold in what areas blah blah, they tend to in general have no clue whatsoever the answer to any of those questions. I then ask them how much it will cost me when the free trail is over and they try to fog me by banging on about unimportant stuff till I say HOW MUCH WILL IT COST ME. I then point out their prices are extortionate and ask if they have other types of business advertising, they often do so I ask how much the other business types pay, its always a hefty chunk less. So then I ask them why they think they can exploit sex workers and agencys by charging such a hefty amount less. They say its because other business dont earn as much as we do, err a) how would you know and :cool: that means that their advertising doesnt actually work.

I did actually put an add in one of them once, I was sent a copy of the quarterly magazine and spent a month asking where the callers had seen our advert, none said that magazine. Now I get calls once a week from a chearful woman singing "helloooo its your personal phone stalker hahahahaha" in my ear...its not as funny as she thinks.

They are always smarmy, always cocky and always make me feel like I have a dirty ear when I put down the phone.

I really find people who try to stop me in the street very annoying, sometimes its like running a gauntlet with three or four of these buggers within a 100 yards of each other. Sometimes the odd one wont take no thanks for an answer especially those connected to something religious, they seem blinded by their delusion as i see it, faith as i assume they see it and only telling them i dont believe in religion and wish to see a secular society do they clear off. One even grabbed my arm once to try to stop me walking off, he immediately regretted doing so when i gave him a mouthful. He was a bible basher boring me with tales of god and other fairy stories. :)

Hi Madison,

I too get annoyed with cold callers and having to run the gaunlet of chuggers in the street.

However, why do you not usually take calls from landlines? I thought W.Gs, including those offering strictly massage and H.R. only, would feel more secure to have a caller land line number.

The way I go about booking with a first time client - they ring me (usually from a mobile) I answer, we speak, and set up a a booking. I then text them my in-call address.

I guess because 99% of all clients have a mobile, is why I feel more comfortable dealing only with mobile numbers. But, as I said, I do have two clients who only ever call me from landlines, and they are great, reliable guys. But generally speaking, landlines always turn out to be cold callers, etc.

I tend to always use my landline when calling or making a booking.. Its a clearer line and I can hear her better. Plus Im usually scanning the internet, find a girl for a booking and pick up my land line phone.

Didnt know that it could be a hinderence.

Only used a mobile when was confirming from my car in car park in pouring rain.....

Well all girls are different and I am sure there are many who have no issues with landlines, so I wouldn't worry too much. :)

I have genuine calls from landlines however some landlines numbers are payphones which are revealed by a quick google search. Since I don't accept bookings via payphones then this is very useful to know!

I've had sales calls from mobile phones - appears some companies give out mobiles to their sales teams, and I also get cold sales texts too. I find the latter a complete pain in the neck and guarantees that I won't be looking at whatever directory, or website they are promoting. One SEO company sent me constant texts the content of which made it quite clear they hadn't done their research at all. I pointed this out a few times and they promised to stop contacting me via SMS. Took them about 6 months and many more other texts (all showing the SEO were incompetent by their content) for them to remove me from their marketting lists. Surely it's not THAT difficult, and if it is I'd rather not be putting my website into the hands of a company who don't have the ability to simply carry out such a small, basic thing.

A mate of mine had a call saying that 'they' had detected that there were serious problems with his Microsoft software and that they were able to log in and check fix it.

He said that he was very pleased to hear from them and that as he worked for Microsoft and was, in fact, in the office next to Bill Gates,, he would pop in and tell him the news.

No more calls.

A friend of mine, working in his shop received a cold call from a very persistent girl regarding PPI recently. He started asking her what colour knickers she was wearing, was she wearing stockings, was she horny etc. His colleague was horrified, and worried he would get in trouble. He said 'I didn't call her, she called me!'

Lol, I know it's a bit naughty, but it gave me a good giggle, and if I get up the nerve that's what I am doing next time!

Can you not ask them to stop calling you from now on?

Of course I have. I made it clear when she first called me back to put an ad in the next issue that I had no evidence that we actually had seen any clients as a result so I would not be renewing the advert again.

I've had an influx of these lately. I've started asking them if they can offer me a large ad in a prominant area on their site for free without a banner exchange. That usually shuts them up.

We all get cold calls, from all sorts of businesses (and fakes). Best thing is to tell them nothing about yourself, just say I don't want to talk to you, and then hang up. Saves time and gives them nothing to build a profile on you.
