But the point of the story is it works both ways; if we can make mistakes or have unforeseen problems, they can too. We are only human after all.
That is true. But the problem is prostitutes will lie to your face just to avoid any confrontation. And they will do it all the time as part of their jobs.
For them if they just couldn't be bothered to go through with a booking. Or if a regular phoned up asking for a booking so they blanked you. Or just one of their friends said to them, "fancy going to the town for some shopping".
They wont ever say to those punters they had booked "I just couldn't be bothered to go through with it". Or "a better offer came along". Or "I double booked you and the other guy showed up first". Nope they will say stuff like my mother is sick and has been rushed to hospital. Or my son fell over at school and broke his leg and I need to rush him to accident and emergency.
Or any other thing to try and garner sympathy from you to try and make the punter feel like a shit for even expecting the punt to still go through and expect some kind of recourse from her for deliberately messing him around.
When really the simple fact was. She couldn't be bothered to go through with the booking and as a result the punter lost money as a result that she couldn't care less about.
I know this sounds cruel to say it like this. But I think it needs hitting home, but if you for example had bought something from Amazon and paid the premium for guaranteed next day delivery from them. You sat in all day and it did not arrive. So you phoned up Amazon to complain and the call handler said. "I am sorry but the delivery driver had to dash off in an emergency as his son fell over at school and broke his leg so he couldn't deliver your item". You wouldn't ever say to the call handler "that's ok, I will let you'se off then". You would naturally demand the next day delivery costs refunded and possibly compensation put ontop too for the inconvenience of sitting in all day waiting for a delivery that was not going to arrive.
The same should apply to the prostitute you are paying a service from too.
