When a punter's wife rings you.

Just been woken up by some irate wife wanting to know why my number is in her husband's phone. Why do these men not be more careful?

Can't understand it myself. I keep all numbers well hidden.

If my wife was to find out her whole family would come down on me like the proverbial ton of bricks. Why be careless and leave names on a mobile? :)

I have only one cellular telephone, but it is password protected, and I do not leave it about if it is switched on. Not rocket science, really, and, NO, noone knows the password (ditto my PC & laptop).

If I left my work phone on at night I don't think I'd ever get any decent sleep. :)

On the rare occasion that an irate wife phones me, I just deny all knowledge and pretend they have the wrong number. One of these days, one of them is going to Google my number at which point I think a stroppy "Well, he never got as far as phoning me, so I don't appreciate you bothering me", is probably my best hope.

A mate of mine got into the habit of answering his telephone with, "Mortlake crematorium! Can I help you?"

That might be one answer, but it could be counter productive for first time callers?

I have been known to answer my phone with a cheery "Good afternoon. Dominos pizza" ;)

However, I reckon that Laura's "Tarts r us, how may I be of assistance?" could be counter productive, although I suspect it's reserved for moi. :)

Every so often I get calls from guys who will ask me who they are calling - I obviously do not announce I'm an Escort since it could be anyone wife/son/partner/nosy friend/boss etc etc. I just say I'm Ruth. What follows is then evasion of the point and the guy will often say he just found my number on his phone and wondered who it belonged to. Guys this is not the way to elicit the response you wish!

I like those ones ;) The ones where you pick up the phone and say hello and the first thing they say is "Who is this?"

My answer used to be "Hang on a minute, you rang me! Surely you don't just phone people you don't know and ask who they are? Is this a new way of networking?"

Now, I rather enjoy them and my latest answer is that they have rung the emergency number given to them by a secret government organisation at the time of their memory wipe/relocation.

Note to chaps:

If you're not going to remember who Amanda is, save me as whore or tart or sommat. It'll save us both time. :)

I have over 100 numbers stored on my phone, mostly work related. Escorts' numbers are entered as something that sounds like a normal name but will remind me of who the person is. For example, Strawberry might be entered as Kendall. This way it is highly unlikely that my wife would ever phone one of my numbers and ask who it is because most of time she would be talking to one of my former clients. If asked, I could just say, "Oh I think that was a client's accountant, I really must get round to deleting some of the out of date numbers."

I had this the other day..

I answer phone to a women speaking she says 'what is Madam Beckys why are you on my husbands dialled calls list'

me: 'Im sorry I am unaware who your husband is i'm sorry I cant help you further but I have no idea'

her: 'He has played away before but with a Madam Becky fucking c***'

then she hung up! why oh why would you leave the phone lying around especially without deleted call history! poor guy though she sounded extremely pissed off!!

Guys - get sensible - cant believe some of you are using your normal mobiles for punting - if you have a wife/colleague/GF whatever that is just madness and asking for REAL trouble.

Go to Tesco - buy a cheap phone, get a pay as you go SIM card from Carphone Warehouse. Use that for punting. Keep it somewhere she'll never find it, under the spare tyre in the car is a good place as girls seldom go there......

BUT ALWAYS DELETE all the call logs after you use it.

If she ever finds it - deny all knowledge - there is nothing on it to incriminate you.

Some guys carelessness is maybe explained by a deep seated wish to end their marriage??

Not always clearly... but in some cases lack of care is so extreme that either that, or lack of rationality, are the only obvious explanations.

Thanks for your patronising advice but I have been punting for 30 years and my method works for me. If my wife ever discovered that I had two phones, I would find that much harder to explain.

There is a simple way of disguising numbers. Just add 1 to the last number: so a number ending 5 becomes 6 &c. Just remember to remove the number from your call records after you call the correct number.

That's a good idea....still not sure I want names I can't explain on my phone even if the numbers are disguised.

What also bothers me about using the one phone is getting an inbound call or text message and having to explain that - especially if my name is mentioned as often happens when making a booking.

I'll stick with the 2nd phone tucked away somewhere safe I think....each to his own......

I lost count the amount of those calls I have had over the years, the worst is when they turn up on your doorstep!! Yes that has happened once and even brought the two kids along.

With the calls I always say "well who are you?" and always come up with a great cover story, chose something you know alot about, mortgages, romantic surprises for partners, investments, etc. That normally does the trick.

+1

There's also the hassle of keeping a PAYG phone topped up, and the calls are bloody expensive so it runs out quick.

After trying that approach for a while I went back to using my normal mobile, but am ultra-careful about i) leaving it lying around and ii) deleting call history.

It's what works for you, ultimately.

Oh, and I've used Trouncer's tip of lightly disguised names for a while now :)

I just have my blackberry for business and pleasure, but in my contacts list I disguise ladies names with fictitious employers. So if my wife decided to investigate my Blackberry all she would find would be Tracy at 1+1 accountants (who might be a genuine business contact) or Amy at 1+1 accountants.

If Amy rings me, my phone displays the caller as Amy at 1+1 accountants - only I know that Amy has a much more interesting job than accountant :)

Another possibility would be to respond, I don't know, is he a plumber ?, to which she's likely to say something like No he's a bloody .... It would at least give you a few seconds to regain your balance and she might give you a ready made explanation.

That's because sometimes we can't remember if Ruth on 07... is a professional floozy, an amateur floozy who's number we snagged, when drunk one night, or was programmed into our phone by some jester of a mate. The prospect of a shag is enough to make us disengage our brains and take the chance and call it anyway and try to play it by ear. Yes we're hopeful like that.

Answering 'Battersea dogs home' was popular at home for a while when I was a kid because my mother took to taking in stray cats.

I'd be more than a little bit angry if someone woke me up at 7am in the morning. What did you say to this woman?
