Thread: Backing Out of a Bad Appointment

  1. #21
    I guess the point is this. In the first case mentioned, being already well into things by the time the fake intercourse was attempted, she was obviously bat-shit nutty, but you're right...That amount of drama is not worth a few hundred dollars but dammit, I didn't feel right leaving her with a few hundred bucks and knowing she had gotten the better of me. In the second case, this is a very well known agency here in Austin with a good reputation which is why I gave her the benefit of the doubt in spite of the fact it was not the same gal in the photos. Mind you, she was cute it was only the service which was a huge dissapointment.

    You have every right to bow out if it's not what was advertised. Giving a cancellation fee is up to you, do you want the potential drama in the parking lot or not? How much it that worth to you?

    However once you pay your money, that's it, no refunds, you made the decision to stay and take your clothes off. Leave early if you want, that's why they call it TOFTT. Every new encounter has the potential to be a wonderful experience or a TOFTT experience. That's part of the excitement. Do you go to Vegas expecting to win everytime?

    If you don't want to TOFTT then do more research up front and get to know a few other fellas that have similiar tastes and trade referrals.

    You can't always belive what you read on this board or any
    other board. You can research all you want and some times
    it just doesnt work out. I have used a couple of known good
    agencies and always had a great time, the next time I called
    the lady that came over had no clue what to do, and was not
    interested in being there.

    First words out of her mouth were"where's my money"? I should
    have asked her to leave right there, you know little head won out.
    It was the biggest waste of money spent. No longer use that agency.

    I think that escg said it best. Nothing wrong with backing out
    if things are not right.

    We all have learned some hard lessions in this hobby.

    I have to agree with those that say "screen, screen, screen." If there are no reviews, post an inquiry here...maybe someone has seen her and give you accurate feedback. But not all feedback is accurate. So, if you decide to see someone absent good research, you really are blowing your wad. You might get lucky w/ a good provider, but mostly, the good providers reps get ahead of them and we all know who they are. You might decide to TOFTT. If so, let us know so we can appreciate your research. But good consistent reviews on any of the boards is the only way to play the odds. In the end, everything we do in the hobby is a risk--from meeting providers to getting caught.

    In answer to your quest, I don't think it is good form to back out except in the 1st 5 minutes or so. You make a date, agree to the cost of companionship. You should live up to the agreement.

    Screen screen screen is a given...common sense so case closed there. Given the board's been down for such a long time I figured a well-known agency with a good reputation would be a fairly safe bet. Regardless, I take full responsibilty for that one and an appropriate review will be given when the site is completely back up. Let's go back to the original psycho who tried to substitute her hand for her vagina thinking I wouldn't notice...It's a given she's nuts but what do you consider to be appropriate action in this case? What would you do in that situation?

    If that&#39;s the only problem that came up, probably just "catch" her on it and question it. But if that&#39;s the only problem that came up, no need to do anything drastic. You just got shafted--that&#39;s all. Too bad SHE didn&#39;t get shafted. I&#39;m sure she would have enjoyed it.

    If it&#39;s not the only trick she tried, perhaps milk your time for all it&#39;s worth. Work it Work it Work it. Maybe also say when she won&#39;t give you anything you ask for (which she supposedly advertises)..."hmmm, do you really want &#39;hand job&#39; &#39;no kissing, etc.&#39; in your review? Because if so, continue on....I&#39;m sure this will look really good for your business once the review is out." See if that changes her attitude. Or you could just come out point blank and ask her, "you advertise certain services, yet you&#39;re not providing any of them today--can I ask why that is?" (And see if she blames it on your hygiene or just because she isn&#39;t feeling well or whatever." Then maybe (depending on her answer), give the comment above in blue afterward if you&#39;re not satisfied with her answer. I suppose it doesn&#39;t hurt to put her on the spot. You do have the right to know if it&#39;s you or her.

    But be prepared, for she might just end the visit herself....and then you don&#39;t get any kind of handjob. So it&#39;s all in the way you present the statements. Be super innocent, sound sincerely interested in the answer and sweet about it.

    Actually, it wasn&#39;t a handjob, right? It was a hand ACTING job...pretending to be a Va-jay-jay, right?

    BTW, I want to give props out to all those before my previous post who posted the same thing about OKAY TO BOW OUT but at the beginning who didn&#39;t get the comments on their posts like mine did. I didn&#39;t even see those posts when I posted my comments. I guess we were all just thinking the same thing.

    More recently, I saw a agency provider who I immediately knew was not as advertised, but cute all the same, and was clearly advertised as a "GFE" provider. During introductions, she wiped her hand, appearing disgusted at the very thought of being touched. This immediately put me on guard. Well sure enough, during the session she refused to kiss LFK or DFK, no DATY, no BBBJ, hardly any touching and was rushing me along like an assembly line. 30 minutes in to our hour long appointment, I made myself finish and get the hell out of there, $300 poorer. Now, I consider myself a decent looking fellow for being late 30&#39;s with barely 20 extra pounds and always show up clean and fresh for an appointment. I have had very good appointments with other well reviewed providers in the past so I am confident it&#39;s not me.[/b]

    I know this may sound simplistic but did you bring it up to the agency? I am assuming this wasn&#39;t with us as we simply don&#39;t have many reviews. That being said, I know that if a client is disappointed in any way, we would rather know about it and be in a position to correct it with the client than find out down the road - the road littered with many unhappy clients. I can&#39;t tell you if that is the correct answer or not, but it definitely seems like it would make sense to at least bring it up. If the agency isn&#39;t willing to handle the matter with you, you know to move on to a different company or any of the amazing independents.

    Just my thoughts.

    When I found myself in this situation a couple of time before deciding to go with ASPD providers exclusively, I basically just toughed it out to the end and got out, leaving my cash behind and taking it as an expensive lesson. I don&#39;t do drama, certainly not in an environment I am unsure of.

    One case the provider indicated FS during initial discussions but wound up being just a rub and a tug. That was even bad because of bad lube basically e=wearing me out.

    The other was similar setup that wound up being much larger and undesirable with a bad incall. I should have left immediately, but the littel head was being stupid, and as you know you can&#39;t fix stupid. Wound up as a rub and a tug as well, though more successful than the previous one. I slipped out the door as quickly as I could.

    My next adventure was with a provider who introduced me to ASPD and I haven&#39;t had a bad experience since.

    It is my recommendation that you not venture off the reservation unless you are willing to take the hit.

    I agree with charles. I think it&#39;s acceptable to bow out within the first 5 min of walking thru the door.
    It&#39;s also your choice to compensate or not if you do not stay for the session.
    You&#39;ve gotten some great advice on here & I wish I could provide more, but it seems like everyone has beat me to it.
    If the provider has a website look at ALL the information provides & pay attention to her reviews, etiquette & FAQs page.
    If she doesn&#39;t have a website & you can&#39;t find any info on her, it might be wise to pass on her.
    Good Luck sweetie & hope your next encounter is fabulous ^_^

    No, it wasn&#39;t you folks. It&#39;s an agency that&#39;s been around for a few years now and is quite well known on this board. I previously explained how I handled it by calling the proprietor who offered me another session with another gal with some no charge extra time. Like I said previously, I won&#39;t be fooled twice and wasn&#39;t looking to get something out of them for my trouble so I passed. Just wanted to express my dissatisfaction and move on. Curious though, what would you do in an attempt to correct it? I imagine that as an agency, your gals are expected to perform at a certain level of service and this is all discussed well in advance of sending them out to meet your clients. It appears in this case no such expectation existed which is why I won&#39;t be using them again. Between the poor service and phony photos, I can&#39;t imagine anything they could do to bring me back as a client. Honestly, if it was just an isolated case of one gal performing badly I might reconsider, but false advertising, whether she was good looking or not is enough to keep me away for good.

    Let me start by saying that I agree with your last statement - a bad experience can be made up for, poor business practices (i.e. false advertising, etc) cannot. If it were just the bad experience to be made up for, it would be for you to get the appointment you had scheduled although with the girl of your choice. Whether it was with that same girl or another girl, that is for the company to handle internally and not something the client needs to know about. Simply put, customer satisfaction is the focus of this business and if a client was short changed in their experience in any way, it shouldn&#39;t cost them anything to have it made up. It is up to the company to make the experience right or it is up to you to move on to another company.

    As for the offer of additional time at no cost - that has its place for relatively minor inconveniences. When there is a major issue however, why would you as the client want more time of a terrible experience?

    I hope I&#39;m not throwing anyone under the bus, it just seems like some basic customer service and customer relations goes a long way.

    Exactly. Guess you could say "hand-gina" She wouldn&#39;t let me on top or in front of her. Then made me get behind her and was like palming my cock between her hand and clit. Took me about 10 seconds to figure out what she was doing and told it wasn&#39;t goig to work for me. So, this being twenty minutes or so in to the session, you think I had any right to ask for a full refund at that point? Seemed she was trying to pull "something" over on me, though I still don&#39;t get why she was doing was this...very strange practice if you ask me. Again, Looney-Tunes is the only rational explanation for this one.

    At that point I politely said "this isn&#39;t working for me" and requested most of my money returned. After persisting she return my money, she began screaming at the top of her lungs (in a hotel room mind you) and physically swinging at me when I grabbed it from her. Well I got most of the money back but with far more drama then I prefer.[/b]
    <div class='quotetop'>QUOTE (Opium89 @ Mar 24 2009, 05:34 PM) <{POST_SNAPBACK}></div>
    I guess the point is this. In the first case mentioned, being already well into things by the time the fake intercourse was attempted, she was obviously bat-shit nutty, but you&#39;re right...That amount of drama is not worth a few hundred dollars but dammit, I didn&#39;t feel right leaving her with a few hundred bucks and knowing she had gotten the better of me. [/b]
    Whoa. That last sentence is what&#39;s going to get you in a world of [bigger] trouble at some point down the road, I fear. Good golly, getting into a physical and/or verbal scuffle over $200, with a lady you don&#39;t know and have already determined is batshit crazy and with whom you&#39;ve already gotten nekkid and engaged in illegal acts with is so not a good plan. :blink: There is just too much potential danger and possible baaaad outcomes in that type of scenario. I&#39;d strongly advise to get past the concept of feeling "she got the better of me" and realize, OMG, $200 is a small price to pay to escape that bad situation and avoid a potentially life-altering drama!



    You&#39;ve already been given excellent insight and advice by everyone here. It&#39;s common sense stuff, really, and forcing yourself to think and act logically with the big head in a situation. Letting emotions (and/or the little head) run the show is what gets you into trouble and ends in unhappy outcomes for you.

    To recap:

    1) Research, research, research.
    "An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure." If keeping your risk level as low as possible and not feeling you&#39;ve wasted any of your money or been ripped off by a lady/agency is a primary concern, then exhaustive research before booking with any lady is mandatory. You will also need to limit yourself to only seeing ladies who have impeccable reputations and tons of glowing reviews or who are personally recommended by hobby buddies whose judgement and recommendations you trust implicitly.
    ~~If you are the type who can&#39;t always stick to the well-lit path and just has to have an adventure into the wild unknown AKA finding that mythical CL "diamond in the rough", then you HAVE to accept the risk involved in that. You must be able to live with the knowledge that your $$ is more times than not going to be misspent on a disappointing experience. There are no guarantees in this hobby, and especially when exploring the uncharted waters of CL.

    2) Accept up front that after you give a lady your donation and begin any BCD activities, you are not going to see that $$ again. No matter if her attitude and/or skills are lame and not what you expected or desired, no matter if she doesn&#39;t look like what you envisioned and/or what she advertised, once the money has changed hands and you have engaged in BCD activities, there are no refunds. It might not be "fair" or "right" but that&#39;s the way it is in this business. There are ladies out there who will voluntarily refund you part of your donation in that type of situation, but don&#39;t count on it or expect it to happen. And most likely, if you&#39;re with a lady who&#39;s falsely advertised herself and/or her services, she&#39;s NOT going to be the type of lady who would be agreeable to any kind of refunds. Make sense?

    3) If you meet the lady and she&#39;s absolutely not what you were expecting and you do not want to go through with the session, you need to cut your losses and end it immediately (within the first few minutes). Seriously, you know pretty quickly if you&#39;re attracted to someone and want to spend BCD time with them or not, right?
    ~~If the lady shows up and she has falsely advertised herself (she&#39;s not the lady in the photos, or the photos are very old/misleading, or her description of herself was nowhere near accurate), then IMO you don&#39;t owe her anything. She is at fault here for false advertising. Politely say, "I&#39;m sorry, but you are not the lady in the photos and I don&#39;t wish to do business with you." You can&#39;t wait until you&#39;ve gotten her nekkid and started fooling around, then decide to stop and demand a refund. You&#39;ve got to cut things off BEFORE you get to that point.
    ~~If the lady shows up and yes, she&#39;s the lady in the photos, but yikes, you just know you don&#39;t want to get BCD with her after all, then immediately call it off. You can either tell her outright you just can&#39;t go through with it, or use an excuse such as "I&#39;m very sorry, I&#39;ve been called back in to work and can&#39;t stay." In this case, since she didn&#39;t bait/switch or deceive you and it&#39;s just a matter of you knowing she&#39;s not your type, then I&#39;d say you should give her some type of compensation for her time and loss of appointment. She may have turned down other appointment requests to accept yours, or have expenses for traveling there or hiring a sitter for her kids, etc., so some type of appropriate gratuity is in order. You might ask her, "is $40 (or $100, or whatever number you think) a fair amount to cover your expenses getting here?"
    *Again: the time for refunds is BEFORE nekkid BCD activities begin. After nekkid BCD activities begin, no refunds.

    Absolutely agree with everything Quiet Smiles said. If you&#39;re not happy with what you&#39;re into, bow out of it as soon as possible. But do it tactfully and, more importantly, do it safely. Nobody wants any bat-shit crazy psycho drama.
