i understand totally where your coming from and thats fine if it works for you and girls are happy to give out there address to every tom dick and harry that calls you have no control over the situation of when someone turn up and beit early or late and i would hate that
personally i think they would be nuts to do that but each to there own if it works for them and they are happy with it then thats fine
Even with guys that i have seen lots of times i ask them to confirm on the day and not to just turn up they need to call me when they have arrived and then i will buzz them in
i try to work a very stress free way and live a stress free life in fact i dont do stress im a hippy chick at heart and having people turning up early or late or when they feel like is not how i like to work its to much stress.
Even when im in hotel and im touring , im not giving out the room number untill i know that they are on my floor and can tell me what floor number that they can see
my safety is the most important thing as far as im concernced i never had a problem working this way and dont intend to change i would rather loose a few bookings than be stressed out waiting for someone to turn up
i do have the advantage of having worked for a long time so am well established so guy are more likely to feel that i wont mess them around ect
As i said previously having been sent on wild goose chases in the past which have resulted in the WG not actually answering her phone to give me the exact address but being in the place she asked me to be at at the time she asked, i wont risk this occuring again unless its local and i was in the area anyway.
I wont leave mine when i confirm i am on my way to her place without her full address, i have no problem if the WG doesnt want to give me her address, i simply go elsewhere. In reality if they want my business its full address or no business and most give it to me when i confirm i am on my way if not when i book although its more often i only get the general area they are in at this stage which is fine with me initially.
