Guiding in the missile

27 posts in this topic

Ladies, do you offer a map reading service to your clients ?

I live in Brighton town centre, there's several big roads you can drive along to get here, but when you get here you do need to have some kind of a street map rather than an AA Road Atlas or simply the nose to head to Brighton.

Him - 'Oh but I know where the pier is'

Great, but I need to direct you where to park and then direct you again how to walk thru to my road from there.

Me - 'Do you know Brighton town centre at all ?',

Him - 'No but I can call you again for better directions when I get near'.

I've lived in the town centre for about 3 months, it's a maze of no entry, bus lanes, one ways and quick turns in the correct lane.

It's 10am and our appointment is for 11am, he's still an hours drive away on the straight roads. I have a block of bookings 30 minutes apart today. I like to stay in good spirits during my working day and get rid of anything that's likely to tip me.

He was ill prepared and being short on time to get him here didn't allow me to be of any help. He told me where he was and there was no way he'd get here for 11am, and likely would have me stressed out guiding him in which makes for an unsatisfactory booking for the both of us. I suggested we leave the booking, after a bit more chat he agreed.

I'm just venting as this made me cross. Venting is good.

Ladies I know we often give a local landmark and guide the client in from there, but how much more map reading do you offer clients ?

*Bitch alert* Most men are entirely reluctant to stop and ask for directions, so consider the calibre of the male who then needs to be guided in.....

Waiting for him to drive down the end of this road, then that road

Listening to him humming and harring....

Erm I'm at the end of so and so road,

Ok now you need to turn left and take the third on the right,

Ok I'm just passing this road, now that road,

Oh sorry just gone past it... hold on, I've got to turn around.....

No hold on, just take the next one,

Oh I can't, I'm turning, wait a minute.....

Gents I know most of you are very prepared on where you've to visit, I also know I'm impatient and just expect you to turn up at the end of my road... but do some ladies go beyond the call of duty to get you to them ?

The title of this threw me slightly Lily - I didn't think you were receptive to gents' 'guided missiles'! I'm good at this sort of research, but there's one lady I've seen on outcalls a few times who seems to specialise in getting lost.

I always prefer to be given an address, then I will use an A to Z or satnav to get to the location.

Sometimes for reasons of security ladies like to give a location that is near their actual place then give you final instructions over the phone. That's fair enough.

I like a postcode form where i'm going, even if it's the next street away, then i ring the girl/agency to get the exact address/house number and i'm there in five min's.

When I read the title I thought you were using a euphemism there so I'm going to follow my own tangent. ;)

I like to guide my own missile in and watch it plunge into the target, but find some ladies a little too willing to intercept and guide the missiles final approach themselves.

So gents do you prefer to guide your own missiles final approach or don't you mind the ladies to doing it for you.

And Ladies do you prefer to guide in the missile yourself or have you thought some guys like to do it ourselves.

There are still a lot of guys who don't have one. I will usually give verbal directions to the place to park at the point of booking if required - even back to the M6. I have had a couple of guys ask if I'll meet them just off the motorway, or on the outskirts of town to show them the way - obviously I have declined that one especially since one was a guy who didn't have a mobile phone.

My location (well the parking closeby) is very straightforware but Occasionally a guy will say he'll call from the town centre or "when I get to town". This will usually actually make things difficult and him 10 minutes late so I give him a few pointers to avoid this. One thing I don't like doing is 'talking someone in' as already mentioned above it can turn into a game of cat-and-mouse as he will be talking about the things he is passing and you are trying to tell him to turn left - oops just missed it......or sometimes doesn't know where he is at all, or is off down a very odd lane outside a shop you haven't heard of.

So postcodes for Sat Nav's, street address for those who like maps and full description for them without either. Did have someone caught out by not looking up on a map but I had given fool proof directions, which he thought he wouldn't need to remember since my town is so small. It is small if you have a good memory. I did offer to talk him in but he declined.

As I often say - you can't please everyone.

Last autumn I had to think rapidly of a "Plan B" when my Confirmed Plan A went sick on me by txt without much notice.

Fortunately I had a note of another lady's telephone number, and I called her. The map now shows me that her working premises are about 2km from the relevant M6 exit. I was to ring when I reached that exit. I did and had directions via several round-abouts, second exit, third exit, fourth exit, etc. Somehow there had to be a misunderstanding (I think) as to exactly where I was when I called, but, until I asked her specifically, no post code! As soon as she gave me that, I punched it in, and I was there, but my loop di loop round so many roundabouts had turned a relaxing hour into a (very enjoyable, and I'll be back) half hour!

IMHO ladies should always offer a post-code for either their door, or the favoured parking place. If the punter hasn't got a GPS he needs to admit it with embarrassment! (Hell, they cost less than an hour in the arms of ...)

...and then, not only does one need to clear the cache off the PC, clear the browser history but also ensure that the GPS doesn't log, or vthat the track log has been deleted!

If you have a significant other, it's important to delete the address from the "previously visited" list.

Always giving directions to clients right to the door I prefer it because you know exacly where they are how long they are going to be, For instance if they are parked up over the road and need to know which building it is I explain to them but it also gives me time to text the girls and let them know a client is on his way up.

The annoying thing is when a client keeps you on the phone whilst they are parking up locking there car etc and says 'hold on im just going to park up'... *yawns* just call me before or after lol

I can guide my missile when the lights are off just fine...

Seriously, I won't leave my home without a proper incall address. The door number I can recieve by txt or a call when I arrive, but at minimum I need the street name/postcode. Just as you girls won't leave your home without a client's full hotel/house details for an outcall, I won't for an incall. Don't like it? I'll take my money elsewhere.

I'll also txt my mate to let him know where I'll be and for how long for my own safety and I do the same for him when he's out playing. I'll check the incall address on Google Maps and Google the area/street name for intel.

Google Maps for mobiles is great if you have data plan so it can download maps and StreetView images on-the-fly. But if there's no phone reception I have to fall back to the inferior Nokia Maps due to its built-in maps.

Being a public service user, and not having a sat-nav, tend to relay on the street adress and the map, I also dont own a mobile phone so cant be talked in to someone's street.

But for all that, I have never been late at a Escorts home, or at a parlour, I explain this when i make a booking, and if im not given the street where I can phone if need be, then the booking will not be taken any further.

I dont have a sat-nav, and my sense of direction is appauling. I nearly always ask for a road name when the booking is finalised so I can print off a google map and plan my route. I am happy enough to get the house number 2-3 minutes before the appointment starts as I am walking down the road.

Some ladies have told me to call from a specific place which is close by, like a tube station or landmark. It makes me feel a little bit uncomfortbale not knowing where I am going as I get lost very easily, but in those cases, the last minute directions are always very good.

So far, I have only got lost about 4 times ;) (yeah, I know), but always allow plenty of time for it, and have never been late ...touch wood.

To add to the other views, firstly I thought the topic was about Ladies taking control.

But when I read on, I agree with most of what has been said. I do not get out and about as much as I used to, but when I do I like to see a lady for some fun. I usually plan visits several days or a week in advance and I like to know where I am going so I can work out timings and fit things around the places I have to visit for business.

I know that unfortunately there are lots of time wasters and a lady needs to be careful of giving too much away for security reasons etc but for me to able to make a firm booking I need ideally a post code or a very easy to find landmark, which may have a post code itself eg a pub. Even though I have GPS to find exact locations at close quarters, I still like to plan my journeys with maps which nowadays I look at on line and print off the bits of the area where I am going to.

I find that it is much easy to understand the lady's final directions with a map to look at and also much less stressful. You do not want to be stressed when going to see someone for the first time.

If a lady is not prepared to give some reasonably close idea of where I will find her then I am always a bit wary and would rather visit someone who is more open and helpful. I fact I find that the conversation about how to get there starts to build up the relationship and usually leads to a more satisfying encounter.

I hope this explains to the Ladies why some of want to know about location as well as services.

Lilly, I would suggest you may give out a post code and suggest that the gent prints out a map, so easy to do these days.

Good luck,

davidgood

Thanks David, but my problem yesterday wasn't about me not offering him my postcode, it was about him having no street map nor him making any effort to get one. Perhaps I didn't say it, tho it should have been assumed, he also had no sat nav so having my postcode was pointless to him. Once he got to Brighton Pier, he wanted me to guide him in.

Brighton town centre if anyone knows it, especially on a Saturday, is not a place to want to be guided thru over the phone.

However I don't offer clients my postcode because you cannot drive up to my road nor park in it unless you are a resident. Instead I give the postcode for the nearest car park, my road name, the road it's off and verbal directions how to walk between the two.

There is a map on my website, when someone calls to book I also talk them thru the visuals. The client I was speaking about didn't give me the opportunity to help him, he was happy to call me from his car and simply head for Brighton. It was a wasted opportunity for the both of us.

I agree Lilly and often I might be just finishing getting ready or even taking another phone enquiry at the exact time the chap does get to town. For my town there are several approaches some of which make it very easy to find me, others are much more difficult/complicated and involve traffic at certain times of day. I prefer to give postcode or street info before the chap sets off then he has chance to use whatever navigational devices he may wish to access. Leaving it till the last minute in a strange town can certainly result in missed or reduced opportunities for both parties alike.

I guess some punters are just stupid. I have my Sat Nav (bought specifically to navigate punting locations around London :)) and a pocket-size London A-Z if going by public transport. Sometimes being late is unavoidable but 99% of the time for me, I am usually early. I like to be relaxed before I go in, not scrabbling round for a parking place or panicing I can't find the place.

If early then depending on how early, I'll either wait til its time or maybe call to say I'm early can you accomodate me now or shall we just wait til the agreed time.

I'm sure most punters are like this.

I sympathise totally with the OP here,i had a similare experience the other day.A client was due to arrive at 1.45,i phoned him at 1.50 to ask if he was still coming.

him;im in the shopping center,how long will it take for me to walk to where you are.

me;your appointment was supposed to start 5 minutes ago,it will take you 10 minutes at least to walk to me,probably longer.

him;i will start walking now,i thought i would give you a little more time.

me;im sorry but i will have to cut your time down to 45 minutes as i have another client booked in soon after you.

him;ok

10 minutes later

him;im waiting outside macdonalds for a taxi,ill be there soon.

me;im sorry,i will have to cut your booking down to 30 mins as your not even on the way yet.

him;ok,well can i book in later instead.

me;i wont be free until 3.30

him;ok,book me in for an hour at 3.30.

me;no,im sorry,i cant risk you going off shopping again instead,if you could ring me at 3.15 i will let you know if im still free then or not.

I had 2 clients turned down during that time which i lost out on just because the guy didnt see the urgency of getting to his appoinment on time,he had my address and postcode,didnt help though,he did turn up at 3.30 in the end,its just maddening.

You have my sympathies. I dislike bad timekeepers, to me it shows a lack of respect.

I am the exact opposite, and allow plenty of time to get to the punt building in more than enough time to cope with minor traffic delays and locating the premises. When i met you and Natasha i was in the area a full hour early as i wasnt too familiar with the location of the hotel.

Lily,

Sorry not being 'techie' I do not know how to bring up your reply to my last post.

However I note your comments and as you provide a map on your site this guy must be a real plonker to have to ask you how to get to your place.

I suspect he is not a very serious punter.

Like Smiths, I like to get to places on time or a little bit early but sometimes one gets delayed, especially if like me you work and have to fit things in around it. That happened to me a week ago when I was going to see a lovely lady in Romford who I would definitely liked to have seen early. However I had my maps etc knew where I was going and did not ring her till I knew I was on the home straight to her flat.

I think others just need to try harder, if they turn up late just give them the time that is left from what was their original time slot.

Hope you do not have too many more experiences with inconsiderate people.

That does sound really annoying.

I'm not a WG but I live in the centre of town and sometimes when people visit get the same and yeah it's a little bit annoying.

Thank you Northwinds.

Now I know about this I can be more specific with responses, but I do sometimes like to try to respond at several at once.
