I'm probably going to get so stick for marking this neutral rather than negative but a review is a reflection of the writers view of things, if you believe that the following tale deserves to be counted as negative then feel free to do so IN YOUR OWN HEAD.
My punting opportunities are limited due to me not wanting to punt where I live. Thus I only punt when I get sent down to London on company business. I only restarted punting last month and my very first punt was Lucy. So impressed was I with her service that I attempted to book her as soon as I knew when my next visit to the smoke was going to be.
Buy this time Lucy had already achieved forum darling status, so communication was very difficult. Repeated attempts to call and text got no response, so I put in a booking on AW for the same date and time as I had already texted and as the booking had my punting name and number on it she agreed. I sent her a text thanking her and she responded saying she was looking forward to seeing me again.
Fast forward to yesterday lunchtime and I tried calling to ask her to confirm that the punt was still on. No reply. I sent a text. No reply. Knowing how busy she is I don't panic immediately but I do start to feel a little concerned. Later that night I check her AW profile again and realise that at some point since the start of the month she changed her phone number. So another text sent to the new number. No immediate response, again not panicked but definitely more concern.
When I switched on my punting phone this morning I got a message say that she couldn't see me as she thought my booking was for tomorrow. After several attempts I got to speak to her, she was very apologetic, but said that there was no way to rearrange her bookings to fit me in.
This is where I expect I am about to part company with a lot of you guys. I suspect that a lot of you would be really pissed off at this point. But that's just not my way. Shit happens and there is no point in losing your rag about it. I had already taken steps to secure a plan b (review to follow). The call was followed by a text in which she apologised again and promised to make it up to me (will be interesting to see how that pans out).
So yes, this review of Lucy's ability to keep track of bookings is undoubtedly a negative, but I simply cannot bring myself to give her a negative review. Ask any of the guys who have seen her, she is a top class punt. It's not like I lost any money and the fact that plan b didn't work out is nothing to do with her.
So there you have it. Feel free to revise this review down IN YOUR OWN HEAD but don't expect me to revise it.
