I very rarely punt now but a girl caught my eye today who was showing as "available today".
I phoned and asked for a 30 minute booking at 12-30, she said that would be OK and gave me her postcode, she asked me to phone 30 minutes before to confirm.
Normally I insist on the full address but as she was not too far away I thought I would take a chance.
I phoned as requested and she said OK, see you soon. I arrived at 12-25 and saw the road was a dead end with a few council blocks, parked at the top of the road and walked into the road to make the final phone call, she answered right away and said I wanted the block with numbers 16-48, it so happened that I was right outside that block and asked her for the number ------ her reply was " I can't see you", now I was starting to get pissed off and told her to stop playing games and give me the number.
She said that I might not be alone, I thought what the fuck am I doing standing for this bollocks so I told her to forget it.
The block had four sides, I can only guess that I was at the opposite side to where she was looking out, fuck her, her loss not mine.
This is why you must have a "punting phone", she can phone me at 3am, the phone is always off.

Can’t say I blame you.
Can see it from her point too though, maybe she’s had bad experiences of two guys turning up and causing trouble so now she just wants to be sure?
If I were her though I would get a peephole if she’s really that worried instead of pissing genuine customers off.

She looked out the window saw Jimmy and changed her mind haha

I must admit this "guess the address" game is one of the least attractive aspects of punting. Often combined with the expectation that the punter can and must arrive at exactly the right time. (Arrive 2 minutes early, and you're totally unreasonable, arrive late... and the "meter" may start running from the time you should have got there.)

I often think some WG's think punters travel around via Startrek transporter beams, and can arrive exactly on time, as long you give them address 10 seconds before you want them to appear. I'm not quite as strict as Jim normally is... but I don't travel nowadays unless I've got postcode (or other clear steer) night before.

I would certainly have done the same thing, and thought to myself that was a close shave.

She must have recognized the paper bag Jim. :)

Perhaps she wanted you to do star jumps in the street... :rolleyes:
Don't blame you for fuckin' it off, better luck next time.  ;)

I used to have a mobile phone that showed a landline number.  I made an appointment with a woman for two hours time in South London, she gave me the full address before I set out (shock horror), but asked me to ring when outside her place, because her doorbell wasn't working.  So I did as she suggested and rang her from outside.  No answer, tried a few times.  Now this was not in the most salubrious area of London and I felt a bit conspicuous standing outside this woman's place, so I headed back to the station.  I eventually got through to her when I caught a train.  Both of us started off the conversation [politely] on the lines of "what the hell do you think you're playing at?"  When I described the car parked outside her place (no wheels, mounted on bricks) she was forced to accept that I was not playing silly games sat at my home.  This was before the days of Street View.  After that frustrating episode I took great pains to explain that I was not ringing from a landline, but even then some women won't take bookings from a landline.  Eventually I ditched the phone and that problem went away.

Jimmy and me have over 50 years of punting experience between us, and both of us are currently 'resting.' However after Jim's non event and my virtual non event last week it seems as though things have't improved in all those years.

As I have said elsewhere in some ways they are worse than twenty years ago!

I would rather she didn't know that she was being discussed on here, someone is bound to tip her off, either a fluffy or one of the sisterhood ------- they scrutinise this forum daily.   ;)

It's because you're a black cab driver Jim (even if it's red). You're used to people coming to you.

When I pick up fares, I'm used to trying to find houses in obscure country lanes at 3.00 in the morning, or punters not being able to find airport information desks, so I'd have been a lot more tolerant, found which side of the block was the right one and probably had a great punt.  :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo:

As I get older I am getting less tolerant about many things, I went apeshit in Barclays the other day because they only had one window open and a big queue.

It would not have been a good punt because she pissed me off before I even got to meet her, also I sensed a bit of "attitude" ----- that is the last thing I want at £70 for 30 minutes.

I still have my £70 and pro$$ies are ten a penny, I hope she finds clients who are willing to stand for her rules.

Now I have to confess you've got me there.

In my old age, I'm getting very tolerant in my punting life, accepting the sex industry for what it is, and not getting too worked up about things etc, but you're not the only one who'd go apeshit about queueing. I'm definitely Mr Grumpy when it comes to day to day stuff   :manhater: :manhater: :manhater:

Goinmg slightly OT, the thing I never understand about queues, is why they always seem to be the same length. For example, my local Costa always has four or five people ahead of me. There's never no-one there, and never 10 or 20 people. So that means that the servers can process customers as fast as they come in. (If they couldn't, then the queue would just grow longer and longer.)

Therefore, if the servers have no problem keeping pace with the demand, then with a bit of an additional spurt of effort, they could get rid of the queue and then there'd be no queue, and they'd still be keeping pace.

Same with my local GP surgery. A 9.10am appointment means you'll be seen at around 9.25am. A 4.15pm appt means you'll get seen around 4.30pm. So if they can keep pace with everyone, surely there's no need for everything and everyone to be 15 mins late all the time.

I'm with you and JRC on this, Nik and I agree with your last sentence. On the matter of addresses, I would only head out on a punt with the address already given.

Your lucky at your GPs, my appointments are usually at least half hour later than specified.

What i see is Aldi are able to process customers 3-4 times quicker than the main supermarket chains, i know one of the reasons is because in those main supermarkets the cashiers chat and chat instead of just processing the shopping like in Aldi. To my mind they would be able to process far more people if they cut that chat out thus making more money, i am amazed they havent cottoned on to this.

My biggest bugbear is going to one of the main supermarkets in the early hours, many now dont have any cashiers, its self service only. Sometimes there is a queue for these tills so my point of going in the early hours is lost. Most only had one cashier anyway at this time of day AND still have someone standing there looking gormless so they havent saved on staff. The fact is these self checkouts often simply dont work properly in my experiences, one didnt even give me my change, the gormless guy had to refund me. I imagine the long term idea is to go fully self service the whole time which will save staff obviously. I predict many people getting the hump if this happens. ;)

Who is to blame for these self service checkouts, the stupid public who encourage the supermarkets by using them, I simply refuse to use them, I have left a basket of shopping and walked out more than once.
The British people are like sheep, they just do what they are told, why the fuck should I have to serve myself and help Tesco to make even more millions.    :mad:

Because they then pass the discount onto you?

Would you rather pay £30 for your weekly shopping and check it out yourself or £40 and let someone do it for you that takes around 2 minutes of your time to do?

As opposed to self service checkouts I think the real future is virtual stores where you select what you want off the shelf via your PC, mobile phone or tablet and they then come around and deliver it to your door.

If you think self service checkouts will lead to customers getting cheaper prices you are in cloud cuckoo land. Capatalism rarely works like this in my experiences.

I agree about online ordering, and do this myself sometimes but the future will also include ordering your goods online for YOU to pick up (like Argos but unlike them ensuring they continue to make huge profits, Argos are badly run) if you so wish at the store as well as them delivering. Your order would in theory be packed and ready for you. I read an article somewhere about this and UK supermarkets are considering this apparently.

IMO what they need is a real time online system, often the goods i buy online are in reality not available so as i find all but Asda mostly select a very expensive alternative i tick no to alternatives meaning i am short of what i require. A real time system could sort that problem out. Also are they purposely trying to make more money off me by selecting a more expensive alternative, i once went to the online delivery store shortly after a home delivery and they had the original item i had selected and confirmed they hadnt just had a delivery, the picker "didnt see it" was the excuse.

Any savings that banks, supermarkets, companies make  go to the managers and directors in the form of bigger bonuses. and not to the consumer.

Look at the high prices for Apple computers, laptops, iPhones and iPads, they're all manufactured by Foxconn in China where the workers are paid minimum wage. Do consumers benefit from low labour costs? No! the prices are as high as ever - it's Apple's directors who pocket the savings.

You have picked a very bad example. Apple are notoriously greedy bastards. But even with Apple there are examples of cheaper costs mean cheaper products. The IPAD 2 after the IPAD3 came out dropped to a 32nm CPU and as a result the RRP dropped.

What and then I said cheaper costs will be passed onto the customer. My god I agree what a crazy thing for someone to say; Lidl anyone?
