I'm fed up !

Well I'm about to say my peace ....

Hi anyone who reads this ......My name is Jerri Tatum and I'm an independent escort in Brisbane and over the last 3 days ive had 12 No shows ...that's right 12 ...... No calls no txt messages no voicemail to say they would not be able to make their date with me .Let me break it down for all punters out there that can't grasp why I'm upset.......

Bookings made : 12

As Follows : 5 x 60 min = 1750

3 x 90 min = 1500

3 x 30 min = 750

1 x 120 min = 700

 

Total Money Value : 4700

Total hours lost : 14

Clients I turned away : 37 YES !

 

Maths out the way . NOT ONLY did they book with or without the intention of showing up , I could not rebook in those time slots . Most of those NO SHOWS confirmed their booking or kept me going by saying they running late can we put it forward . NOT ONE LET ME KNOW THEY COULD NOT MAKE IT , let me be clear this is not the first time I've had a run like this it's just gotten beyond a joke.

Are they doing it on purpose?

What thrill do they get from doing it?

Is it other escorts ?

Escorting is my full time job , This is my career my livelihood . Escorting is my job it's what pays my bills pays my mortgage just like your job . I cannot afford to be an escort I cannot afford to do my own job if I continue being played like a fool . It's devastating . I understand shit happens ...things pop up ....wives come home ....work doesn't end... A FEW SECONDS OF YOUR TIME TO SEND A MESSAGE TO SAY I CANT MAKE IT WILL ALLOW ME TO PUT ANOTHER GENT IN YOUR PLACE.

I pay good money to have somewhere nice to entertain you I buy the best products I spend money on my appearance it's causing escorts to do outcalls only or car servicing . I'm not at that point yet. It gets that way I'm thinking of double booking but then I let a client down I can't take deposits as I risk men not booking with me because of trust issue . .

 

I'm hoping that the punters responsible just don't understand what impact it has on our lives . I'm hoping that it's not done intentionally.

 

Regardless of why it's happening here's what I'm going to do ......I don't answer private numbers for a reason. I have kept phone numbers of those who have wasted my time or just failed to show . If you are one of them you know I confirm at least 30 min before by calling you. If you don't answer I send a message . I give you the benefit of the doubt and allow you to be 10 minutes late before cancelling your booking. When it becomes obvious you have no intentions of coming I send you a txt thanking you for wasting my time.

 

I will continue that procedure but I will include the following :

 

A. Invoice you for full service fee

B. leave messages on your phone until u respond

C. I will call at different times of day and night in the hope of talking to you

D. I will put your phone number into search bars in google and all social networking sites Eg: face book twitter etc. to see if I can track you down .

SEEMS HARSH !!!!!!! Well how can I provide for my family if you continue to be disrespectful.

 

I will allow 24,hrs for you to make contact before I name and shame you I will put your details out there for all escorts to see so they won't book you and can give that time to a gent worthy of her service .

 

IM so over it ,,, sorry guys. Most gents are amazing it's the few like this that ruin it for everyone

 

JERRI xx

Well, glad that is off your chest!

 

Not sure naming and shaming will fix anything.

 

Be professional and screen unknown callers better.

 

Good luck!

Sounds like you might have someone trying to make life difficult for you. Tell the next bloke who books you'll break his legs at the knees if he is a no show lol.

Hi Jerri,

 

I'm sorry you're having such a frustrating time.  I'm not sure if it's a good thing or a bad thing but surely having so many no-shows in such a short period of time can't be a coincidence - there must be an escort or agency somewhere that is trying to screw you around.  Have you just left a parlour or agency?  I'm sure you're already thinking about anyone in your recent past that might be doing this.

 

If you're only new as a private you might re-brand and get a new contact number but of course that's a lot of work and would lose any good reputation you've previously built in your 'brand'.

 

There must be some way for escorts to discreetly receive payment of deposits from new clients.  Something like PayPal maybe?  Something that doesn't identify clients and won't show up on their bank statement.

 

Naming & shaming to other escorts is fine but if you name & shame publicly (on twitter or something) you almost certainly will scare off potential clients, which will hurt your business more than it will hurt them.

 

I hope things get better.  Not all punters are bad.  :)

Thax guys and no not all punters are like that at all .

@ Charlie I don't even answer a number if its hidden or private ,

 

@ TJ that was my next move lol

 

@ sadel im not new been an escort at least 15 years ive always been a private except when I worked for warren at players lol funny days those lol I guess I cant control it its outta my hands but my point to writing was just so that punters are aware that this isn't just hook ups for us or pocket money its my livelihood I don't escort because my childhood was shit or because im paying for uni or because of a drug or alcohol addiction I do it so I can retire comfortably , spoil my grandsons , and be a happy independent financially secure woman xx

 

@ alice tomorrows another day I will survive I have this long xxx

Hi Jerri, can you give me some comparison for this no show rate. That is, in an average month what percentage of bookings are no shows, late or in other ways problematic.

 

Also we're all these no shows first timers and what percentage of your business is first timers ?

 

I never go private but most of my parlour visits are phone bookings. On the odd ocassion I have to cancel or postpone I always ring. It's good form and I like to treat my regulars properly.

 

Name and shame at your financial peril.

Maybe you could try a couple of weeks where you only accept bookings that are accompanied with a deposit. If i am keen i have no problem paying a deposit, even if it's visiting a new girl, so long as she has been around a while and/or i can check her reviews then i'll take the risk.

And DO NOT use paypal as a payment option, adult services are against their policies and they do take accounts used for such.

From what I have heard, it may also pay to see what touring girls are in town at that time. I hear there are a few who arrange false bookings (not saying that is the case for you,) but sometimes pays to think outside the square!

That's terrible. I wonder if it's an end of year thing with all the schoolkids on holidays and up to no good?

Sorry about this. While I may appear unsupportive I to have my own business and I am about on the bones of my arse.

I cant cry about it though I wish some times I could. I dont have a forum to go that will give me the support and help that you have been given.

Face it times are tuff for a lot of people when it comes to money so just grin and bare it. If you are providing a good service for a good price you have a lot better chance of  than me.

 

So

Tuffen the Fuck up Princess

 

Honestly no disrespect intended

Hi Jerri, 

 

Sorry to hear that, I do agree with Charlie that naming and shaming will not be a good strategy, do you take your bookings over the phone or a text message, if they talk to you, you will have a better chance to see if they sound genuine, if you are going to an outcall, always ask them what name they have booked under and call the hotel reception asking to speak to Mr such and such in room such and such, if they answer and it's the right guy he will be there when you arrive.

Good luck

Hmmm I wish it was a case of " times are tough" its not that im not getting clients or no bookings its a case of "grass greener on other side" or " can't be assed txtin " or " I found out cost after I booked and can't afford it and to embarresed to say so I'll no show" or my personal favorite " fuck Jerri "

Google is awesome somewhere in the world there is a forum for u if not start one

I was merely venting my emotions on a subject most escorts have problems with I didn't do it to get told TOUGHIN THE FUCK UP

Sorry Jerri. I will rephrase it all.

 

"Sorry that men can be such arseholes but life's a bitch sometimes. I know what your going through as business is tough for me too in a very similar way. Now that you have had a vent I hope you feel better. Keep smiling."

 

I could give a very interesting but long account of why I said TFTFUP but not on here.

 

Please accept this honest apology as really did not mean any disrespect and I feel that you are very displeased with my comment.
