Ok I am going
to ramble on her for a while and I hope it dosen't make you
guys thing I am a bitch but it has to be said.
Since it is on topic here lately I will discuss it first.
Not from the client side but from the SP side. It really frustrates
me when I have an appointment booked and the client is a no
show and doesen't even have the decency to call. I sit around
waiting thinking they mey be running late and waste half of
my day when I could have taken other bookings or got some
errands done. We are people too and I know most of you guys
have the decency to call but to those of you who don't or
come up with some lame excuse that you want the call to show
up on your bill or some other crap all it takes is 2 min of
your time and a few quarters in the corner payphone. Don't
be a jerk, call and let us know We all have bills to pay and
a living to earn and after all it is just common courtesy.
Rules- It always
amazes me when guys say oh well I am clean and I am sure you
can break some of those rule for me you have nothing to worry
about. Well I used to tell my clients " yeah what if I belived
the last guy who told me that and he wasn't ok? Do you wan't
what he had?" Guys we set our rules for reasons, not because
we are punishing you or because we don't like to do it. I
would love to plant a big sloppy one on some of my clients
but if that was the case then I would only be contributing
to the spread of disease. And I don't just mean STD's I am
talking about colds, flu, strep, etc, etc.... I know that
I can't afford to be sick and I am sure many of you can't
either. Not to mention who would want to be sick anyway.
I dont' know about everyone else but I absolutely cannot stand
it when people call and call. I mean I appreciate the calls
and stuff but sometimes I wan't to have a quiet day at home
with no interruptions, we need days off to you know. I get
people calling me I watch the phone ring see who it is just
to make sure it isn't my mom or something and next thing you
know they cal back 5, 6, 7 times in a row! Like leave a message
for gods sake and if I m working I will call you back. I mean
is it really neccesary to call 10-15 times in 1 hour? That
just deterrs me from seeing the person. If someone is that
obsessive there must be something a little loose upstairs!
I don't know about everyone else but I hate rude emails. I
really don't need to get emails to the effect of... I need
to f**k you right now. Please be a little more tactful when
sending emails. There are more creative & polite ways to say
it you just need to think about it. Ask the questions you
want but be polite about it.
Ok I think that
is it .
get me wrong I love what I do. The jerks are the ones who
make me not like it. Thank god they are few and far between,
but they still get to you sometimes and sometimes things need
to be said. I am not sure why some guys think they can talk
to us or treat us like they do. We are people too and we deserve
respect. Well most of us do anyway! Just because of what we
do it doesn't men that we should be pushed down the "social
Again I just
want to note this is not directed towards all hobbyists. The
guys that do these things know who they are.
we are not the only ones who "sell ourselves" We ALL sell
ourselves in one way or another.
to think about.
