Couple of years back a new WG started near me and I booked by text. The afternoon of the punt my eldest had a bad accident as school and was taken to A&E. Of course I downed tools, forgot all about the punt, went to the hospital and turned my phone off. Anyway brings him home next day and turns my phone (pre-punting phone days) on to receive a stream of texts from the WG as asking where the fuck was I. I text her back and apologised and explained what had happened, she told me in no uncertain terms she thought what I said was BS, that I was a timewaster and not to try booking her again. She was fit and had good reviews so I just got a PAYG sim and booked with that and had a really good time. She's my regular now and after 6 months of seeing her we were chatting and I mentioned what happened and she just laughed it off as we had gotten to know each other.
