letting clients down

43 posts in this topic

ok i would like the opinions of the WGs please

took a booking this morning at about 11 am for 2pm.

asked the gentleman to ring to confirm appointment at 1.30 befor he set out.

so far so good.

when i took the appointment i was at a friends house out of town and had more than enough time to drive home. bath get ready ect.

unfortunately on the way home my car came to a grinding halt the blind side of a hump back bridge.the RAC where brillaint and were with me in under 15 mins

however the car proved stubborn and then the poilce turned up because of where i had broken down to make sure that the other traffic avoided me

whilst standing talking to said policeman my client rings to confirm.

now may be im wrong but didnt feel this was a call i could take in front of a copper lol

he phoned two or three times in very quick succession about a minute apart.

at this point im composing text message to say that i have a problem and cant see him but will give him a discount on next booking because i have mucked him about. he than phones again

i can take this call cause copper now gone back to his own car

i get a very irritate client. this i can understand but he then tells me that i should not have left to see a friend because i had made a booking with him and that i should have made him my first priority.sorry was already at friends when i made the booking

i offer discount cause ive mucked him about and he then got really offensive so i have to say that i told him i had no desire to see him under ANY CIRCUMSTANCE, and that we working girls do have a life outside of work and are not on hold 24/7 waiting.

may be im in a bad mood lol but dont think so

In some ways I feel for this guy, just like Santa wanting to empty his sack.

Equally, I feel for you, as cars tend to breakdown at inconvenient places and at inconvenient times. Has happened to me on the way to meet Russian student I was seeing for sex, and the car was eventually abandoned in a shopping centre car park, allowing us to eat while awaiting recovery. I did feel like an idiot.

Also, you cannot tactfully talk to a client in front of PC Plod, but you could have been driving at that time and unable to take the call too.

You've offered a discount, he's upset and got the arse, so there's not much you can do but put it down to experience and not get too wound up. Getting offensive with you helps no one.

Can I ask one question.

Why could you not take the call with the copper standing there.

He would have only heard your side of the conversation which would have been explaining that you can't make the appointment because of car problems, you could have been talking to your hairdresser for all he knew. :rolleyes:

I try and look at this from a different perspective - i.e. that the client has gotten himself worked up and looking forward to meeting you but it can be so easy to take it as a personal attack.

I once allowed myself plenty of time to drive back to a booking (30minutes for 1 mile) but hit a freak traffic jam due to emergency road closure, which meant I was 5 minutes late. Needless to say client left even though as soon as I got parked I spoke to him on the phone to say I'd be there ASAP. Did once also have someone trying to call while the gas man was reading the meter. I didn't feel comfortable answering the phone (besides I was moving furniture) and we didn't have a definite time arranged as it was.

I'd just forget about it and you may find that in a few weeks he could well phone back to apologise. Has happened to me a few times. Regards sitting at home I use time inbetween bookings to pop in town, replenish supplies go to have hair/nails done etc which can often only be done during certain hours. Emergencies do happen and you were in an impossible situation. How does he know you weren't on the way back from an outcall?

Yes that's right. Have to admit it does feel a bit odd answering work phone in front of folk who don't know what you do for a living. You could however just say you are running late and trust the guy will not mention anything too explicit since you can often quite easily overhear what's being said on a mobile.

have just had a text message from him saying that hes going to post on the other site what a complete time waster i am and that he hope it affects my business

this did make me smile a bit as its obvious where his brains are right now as the booking as made via phone and you cant post feed back unless you have booked through that site

have a feeling this one is going to be a pain in the arse.

if any of the girls in bristol would like his phone number so you know who he is please PM me.

jimmy i dont feel comfortable answering my phone when people can directly overhear whats being said.

i may well have been able not to give the game away ect but i have no idea what the client is going to say

and if it had been anyone other than two police men one on either side of me lol i may have considered answering

Just let it go you tried to rectify the situation ok might have been best to have picked up straight away in front of the officer, but sounds like he still would have had a strop.

I broke down on the M6 some months back, used mobile to contact the guy when I was in stationary traffic to say would be late because of a traffic jam then broke down spectacularly just as I was 5 miles away from the outcall (I'd driven for best part of 2 hours and held up for 1). When I contacted him it was 3/4 of an hour after our original booking time he was more concerned for my safety and that I got home ok. We rearranged for the following week once my car had been fixed. Frustrating since I didn't get to earn, he didn't get his fun and I was stuck with a massive repair bill but, we sorted it out in the end in a sensible manner.

Trouble with phones is if one person gets stroppy it's very easy for the other to mirror that and thus a situation escalates rapidly. Try your best to communicate, stay calm and if the other person wishes to have a sulk let them.

I wouldn't worry about it Bev, most of us are reasonable people and understand that sh1t happens unexpextedly sometimes, and I'm sure a lot more clients mess you ladies about than vice versa. And, meaning no disrespect to other posters, I've often been in situations, like you with the plod when the phone went, where afterwards you can think of lots of clever things you could have said or done, but on the spur of the moment it just catches you off-guard.

It's understandable that the guy might have been upset, but once it had been explained to him I would have thought he'd appreciate the situatiion. His reaction sounds rather OTT, so maybe you were better off not seeing him. Just write up the whole thing in a blog page on That Site and refer to that in your response to his feedback.

Better luck in future. :rolleyes:

thank you strawberry

i did try and stay very calm but when someone is shouting down the phone, wont let you say anything and is being quite threatening its a little difficult.

i understand his point of view completely and if the rolls were reversed i to would be annoyed.

but life happens to all of us

i hope i would be adult enough to recognize this.

his latest text message is telling me what a good customer im missing out on

somehow i dont think so.

but after a nice cup of tea life should seem better

That's the classic "look what you are missing" line but all it does is make him look like a prat.

Bev.

You did not let the guy down, the car let you down, and the guy lets all of us escort users down by his words.

Im not saying you had a lucky escape, as the guy could have been genuine, but if he had really wanted to see you, I guess he could have made the appointment a little more advanced than he did.

I know its christmas, but whats all the fuss, its just a punter who got let down, these things happen, if he cant cope with it, he shouldn't be punting. Anyway, its not as if you're going to lose your queens award for industry accreditation, is it ?

i know prostitution is not illegal and that's not why i don't answer my phone in public.

its more to do with my embarrassment levels because i know what im talking about even if the other person present doesn't.

Quite a few people don't realise it and others don't want it known what they do (yes I know it doesn't matter but some like to keep their business to themselves).

Anyway from the sounds of it even if she had answered his first few calls he would probably still have gotten the hump.

may be im in a bad mood lol but dont think so

Putting aside the point that it sounds as though you had a lucky escape from his subsequent contact, i always ask the lady to call or text me if a problem arises, i then call to confirm as i am leaving mine, without this confirmation i wont leave for hers. I will then try again a number of times for around half hour and if still no response i would and have gone elsewhere. In this scenario if she doesnt reply i always think i probably had a lucky escape.

If i get there and she is not answering the phone i will persevere for up to an hour, i always think anything could have happened, but if i dont hear back which is rare in my experience i would be annoyed but would have a plan b and c that i can phone one of whom could hopefully see me asap.

What if you call and the reason she can't answer is that she is in an appointment prior to your booking?

I usually have a set confirmation time which is first thing for advance bookings which is at a time I rarely have an appointment. A couple of chaps have asked to call at a later point in the day which didn't work since the time they called I was otherwise engaged. As a result I stick with a time in the morning when I know I shall be free.

Surely the lady can stop peeling her Orange for a couple of minutes to answer the phone?

I would have already agreed the time i would ring to confirm my booking and the lady has my permission to contact me so i would expect a text or call that says please ring back at such and such a time if she took a last minute booking or had some problem. However, if she didnt get back to me before i needed to leave to get to her and didnt respond to my calls i wouldnt bother.

Yes my VM greeting advises of a time to call back if I'm otherwise engaged.

if i have pre arranged bookings then i always ask clients to phone between 9 and 10 am on the day but this chap only booked me two hours before.

yes i could have been with a client and i dont answer my phone when i am but VM says leave message and i will contact you when free.

i would also like to point out that he phoned first at 1.30 on the dot i eventually answered him ten mins later.

not a long time to wait.

What would you do Bev if he was to read this and realise he was quick off the mark, and try to make a fresh booking.

I am not saying he would, but if something went wrong with a booking, i would put it down to experiance and if thwe lady was worth it the first time, i would try again if the problem could be sorted out.

I have had a few problems during my twenty years of booking escorts, but always do try to keep an open mind.
