I sent an e-mail to and made a booking request with a WG for next Saturday. I sent the e-mail yesterday . The WG in question is known for being difficult to arrange a meet with.
How long should I wait for a reply, if she even replies, before resorting to Plan B? I would like to have something arranged before Saturday, I don't want to be scatching around Saturday morning looking to see who's available.
Short answer: move on and book another
Many others out there willing to take your cash. In exchange for services (matched with a good attitude)
For me no phone number listed or a need for A/W feed back, I move on.
I call and if I can't get a time that works for me, I call another.
Nearly all my punts are booked on the day (some times with in the hour), when and if I feel the need. I make a short list and start with plan A (and on occasion) as far as plan F, which includes regulars (some times as plan A). Once booked, I won't travel until I've confirmed the times and basic details.
Some times I don't get to punt and I call it a day. As desperation punts can back fire!
As I have confirmed a booking, then travelled to colindale. Only to receive a text, stating the boiler was leaking and it needed to be fixed. So could we meet another day. I tried calling, but it wouldn't connect my calls (as her, phone was now switched off) and my text messages were unanswered (that night). My plan B and C were finished for the night, so I was left with limited options and called it a night (without a punt)
