Why Do Punters Arrive Early

132 posts in this topic

There is something I simply don't understand. Punters from AW seem to think its ok to turn up early to punts. Why would you book at 8pm and think it's ok to arrive at 7.48pm. Do they want extra time and trying their luck to get an extra 10 minutes?

Happens a lot. No drama. Mostly it's because they're not sure of transport/traffic/availability of parking spaces, and they don't want to be late. As long as they call first rather than just ring the door bell early I don't see what the problem is. Very often it suits me too, since I don't leave getting ready to the very last moment.

I don't think so Lexx. Perhaps they are happy meeting you and just can't wait :) I always arrive in advance at my bookings as well ! But time is time, one hour is one hour... Or so.

I always aim to arrive early to cover unforeseen problems en route.

I wouldn't contact a lady any more than 15 mins before the arranged time and typically send a text saying I've arrived at the arranged place and I await her further instruction but not to rush if not ready as I know I'm early.

Some ladies are quite happy to see me early (and also see me on my way equally early). I never expect my earliness may be free time but instead think the lady, if ready and waiting for our appointed time, may appreciate starting the session slightly early.

Its impossible to completely predict the time of a journey really. I guess that they ring to say they are here early as they dont know how long it will take them to get from point punter to point escort, with some they will be right there near their door but with others they will be at a local landmark and I guess for all they know may still be a good 5 minutes away from our doors. Im terrible really, Im rarely ready early so if someone is here early for me I do have to ask them to give me 5 minutes. I do expect them to be well mannered over this as I am well mannered if someone is arriving 5 minutes late. I did have someone strop off once, I had kept him waiting ten 15 minutes whilst getting ready and according to him that was simply an unacceptable time to wait around. He couldnt get his head around the fact that he was 20 minutes early though so in fact I had not kept him waiting at all, I was letting him in 5 minutes early but no, he had been kept waiting and that was that lol

it can be hard to time it for a new address... you dont want to be poncing up and down the street causing attention do you... its better to get inside...

 

i think 5 or 10 minutes in either direction should be acceptable...

I have a little last minute routine too. Mint in, apply lipstick, hair down, hair booted, re check bedroom, shoes in front of door ready for when they knock. I do this once they buzz my buzzer. It annoys the hell out of me if they dont buzz the buzzer if someone lets them in because Im sitting waiting for the buzzer to go off not realising they are outside knocking on the door as lightly as possible. Plus I like to see who Im letting up to my apartment before I let them into the building.

You ladies maybe stressing over nothing...some of us like the slightly unlevelled look...adds a new dimension and a certain edge to the booking...routine is sooooo yesterday lol

With public transport the way it is, I would rather someone arrived early and asked me if it was OK (and be prepared to wait if not) rather than arrive late which could have a knock on effect.

Because it's generally polite to arrive early.

 

I'd rather have early, than late however if I am not ready then they have to wait. Only time I don't like it is when a client arrives early, you aren't ready and he starts pressing and pressurising you, acts as if it's quite reasonable to ask you to see him 40 minutes early, or even worse clears off because he can't be bothered to wait, OR books a certain time then moves it around back and forth, or forth and forth according to his progress that day. 

 

Most punters are however able to an appointment for a particular time, and arrive a minute or two before.

It's a recognised medical condition know as "Premature Transportation".

 

A  bit like a trip to the airport early because they are scared that her gate might close before they have boarded.

 

It's a bane of business meetings where participants turn up early and behave like you have kept them waiting when the actual meeting starts.

Patience is a virtue and all that, geez...if a lady went into a huff because i was 5, 10 or even 15 minutes early then that really would take the biscuit...

Well, I suppose its ok if it's  ''slightly unlevelled'' , but mine would probably be severely unlevelled  - hoody and leggings and flip flops..

I don't think its a big deal if its only a few mins.If I am not quite ready I just tell them I will ring and direct them over in a couple of minutes.I always ask gents to call me when they arrive before they start ringing the buzzer.

Sometimes it works out ok anyway as I am often ready a few minutes before their appointment time.

I would only get cross if they rocked up say 30 mins early and kept nattering.I banned a client after he turned up 45 mins early expecting to be seen.He then rang 12 times after I had told him I would ring him when my previous client had gone and I was ready for the time he had actually booked for.He got some strong words for repeatedly ringing and told his appointment was cancelled.

As has been mentioned, rather early than late. Early birds can be told to wait, late ones can't be told to turn back time.

 

I tend to arrive early and if I'm told to wait, fine but if it's no problem it gives a little more leeway for fitting in a good shower - yes it depends on whether shower is in the time but for most SPs it seems it's not and they benefit from a fresher partner.

 

Obviously ringing every 2 minutes when early is plain stupid but I can't remember a time when told to wait in anything approaching a stroppy tone although one fairly regular says give me 2 mins meaning 12 mins and 5 mins meaning 20 mins etc.

 

I have glimpsed Lea's website and I would happily have her open the door in her unshevelled street look...

It's sometimes really difficult, even on a known route to be able to accurately estimate the time that you'll arrive, and I always had it drilled into me that it's better to be early, than to be late.

 

Any form of transportation in the UK is destined to be unreliable, so I would much rather give myself plenty of time and go find myself a place to relax before the booking, rather than rush around and get myself all worked up trying to avoid being late.  I don't believe a rushed, panicked journey to a location would enable me to relax and enjoy myself.  I generally arrive places around 15 minutes early, this gives me time to run into a few traffic issues, or go and find a place to relax if traffic is OK.  At about 5 minutes to the appointment I tend to start getting myself together and making my way to the designated place, and about 2 minutes prior to the booking I may call/text to say I've arrived.

 

I never like to leave anyone waiting for me, I find it disrespectful to believe that my time is more valuable than anyone else's, so wouldn't expect someone to be ready for me earlier than I planned, or extend my booking because I turned up late.

Arriving precisely on time requires the punter to know exactly where to go, to be in control of all factors surrounding the journey and for their watch and the wg's watch to be synchronised. However, better to be early rather than late is my motto and it's mostly been well received.

My happy thoughts on that concern a wg who became a favourite, possibly the favourite of all. On our first meeting it transpired she was stuck in traffic due to a snarl up on the motorway and I was further back in the same queue. The place we were both heading for was a couple of miles into the sticks (I'd never been before), and when I anxiously approached the long driveway to the house I was aware of a vehicle having gone down it like a bat out of hell. Anyway, now a couple of minutes late, I rang the bell to be sombrely greeted by a diminutive young woman, late twenties, anorak with hood still up, mid-length woollen skirt and hush puppy style suede boots. As she led me down the corridor to the room I looked closely at her very ordinary, unprepared state, never realising I was going to see her more times than any other wg. Despite the shambolic start, followed by a bed that lurched and squeaked terribly and a mobile that hadn't been muted, etc, we laughed through it all, and it was with genuine sadness on my part that she moved on to other things some two/three years and many meetings later.

It is my routine to try and arrive early. I am paranoid about being late. I understand particularly with some parlours, that you arrive on time, because there may not be a room available. the lady has an overrunning appointment etc. The problem I have these days, are if ladies are running late. This can be through no fault of their own, but very often I am on a limited opportunity to meet with a lady. There are times I can be quite cool about it and able to find somewhere to go whilst the lady catches up. There are one or two ladies on here who may recall this circumstance of the quick call that went where are you, can you delay.  But it is becoming increasingly difficult and potentially there is a time when I will have to walk away and I would be very upset.. Quality time, is quality time. No stress, no argument, no hassle, pure relaxation enjoying the most wonderful pleasure in the world, a willing ladies body. After all the anticipation, it is really nice if possible to have a couple of minutes to chill, take a shower, deal with the paperwork, and when meeting a regular lady have a little catch up, before moving on to the grand event. I have also had the embarrassment of arriving on time telephoning the lady to say I had arrived for her mobile to go to answerphone. I waited outside for ten minutes waiting for her to ring in case of a problem and when she did ring she asked where I was because I was late. So ladies be pleased if someone is a few minutes early, they are genuinely trying to be polite and not waste your time.

I stopped seeing a girl a few years ago mainly because every time I called her from outside the hotel no more than 2 minutes before our appointment as agreed - to allow time to get up in the lift etc. - she would act on the phone as if I had taken her completely by surprise and was turning up much earlier than agreed. She would ask me to call back in 5 or 10 mins, leaving me wandering aimlessly round a dingy shopping centre. So it cuts both ways.

As I travel by public transport I always arrive near the meeting place early - sometimes up to 30 mins. If I know the address already I chill in a local pub or coffee shop until the appointed hour. If I have to call/text for the address it gives me time to suss it out by a walk-past or more distant view if it turns out to be well dodgy! All being well I normally buzz about 1 min before the time allowing for a delay in response or long stair climb :-)
