Thread: Suggestion: Members should pay upfront

  1. #1

    Exclamation Suggestion: Members should pay upfront

    I just had a long discussion on this. I realize that what I did with Judy Star leaves the door open for abuse so I am going to ask all agency owners to demand the money upfront from all clients.

    Let me explain. I use to always pay right away with a tip. I hated exchanging money - it was and still is the worst part of the encounter. It reminds me that this is a financial transaction. I use to pay right away to get it over with.

    Then, some guys here were razzing me for paying upfront with a tip claiming that I was a sucker. An SP even told me that my profile was that I am way too nice. I started rethinking my policy of always tipping and paying upfront.

    Now, the truth is when I call agencies, they know me as GG and they know I will not stiff them. But this is not guaranteed with any John that ladies meet. If a guy does not pay upfront, the lady is responsible for the money. Nobody is going to come after the asshole who felt like not paying.

    I realize that the risk of paying upfront is that I will not get as good a service. I am willing to live with this. The risk that the ladies go through is a lot bigger. Any asshole can pull a fast one on them. This was what Anik was trying to tell me in her post (wish she did it privately and not publicly )

    This is why I now ask all agencies to enforce the rule that all money must be paid before the lady makes the phone call to the agency to say it's alright. I will start doing this myself. I do not want any asshole to abuse any lady by witholding the money and leaving without paying.

    Rule? What rule? A rule that GG just made up on the spur of the moment for the entire Montreal provider and client community?

    GG, you make some valuable contributions to MERB, but you negate them with posts like this one where you pretend to know what is best for a large, diverse group of individuals and businesses. If you want to pay up front from now on, fine, go ahead and do so. But don't suggest that the rest of us should follow your lead.

    The escort business has been around a long time in Montreal and it has its own set of unwritten, generally accepted rules that have evolved on their own over a long time. Always paying up front, while it might be the preferred practice of certain agencies and individuals, is definitely not one of the universal "rules" of the escort business in Montreal. And it's not going to become one just because General Gonad decided that's what is best, not only for himself, but for everyone.

    Strasser: By the way, the murder of the couriers, what has been done?
    Renault: Realizing the importance of the case, my men are rounding up twice the usual number of suspects.
    Heinze: We already know who the murderer is.
    Strasser: Good. Is he in custody?
    Renault: Oh, there's no hurry. Tonight he'll be at Rick's. Everybody comes to Rick's.

    Thank you for your suggestion. For myself, I cannot imagine paying upfront, and I will never do so. I also don't pay my accountant, hairdresser or plumber up front.

    What if, after taking the money, she wants to go downstairs to "pay the driver"? Are you going to let her walk out with your cash? Are you going to try to get your money back?

    Paying up front can only lead to scams and nasty confrontations.

    I realize that there are no rules but I've discussed this at length and I think it is better if all agencies adopt a policy that money must be paid upfront with no exceptions. I am suggesting this not because I am afraid of the GGs or Captains on this board but I am afraid that some asshole will abuse this and try to pull a fast one. This is why I think that we should all strive to pay upfront.

    Kepler,

    I am prepared to take that risk but I will expose any agency that tries to scam me and so should you. As for service, I am not convinced that witholding the money till the end will ensure better service.

    GG, the escort agencies are perfectly capable of looking out for their own interests...as are the clients.
    Strasser: By the way, the murder of the couriers, what has been done?
    Renault: Realizing the importance of the case, my men are rounding up twice the usual number of suspects.
    Heinze: We already know who the murderer is.

    I understand your position and respect your right to pay whenever you want. It's not the way I will behave.


    I bet a lot more customers get scammed with "I'll be right back", or "hours that only last 15 minutes", etc. than SPs get scammed by non-paying customers.

    You're assuming that clients always pay. How do you know? What is a lady going to do if someone refuses to pay her? What is the agency going to do? Call the gumbas?

    Let's get real. If we care about the well-being of SPs, we'll strive to enforce this rule. Agencies should enforce a pay upfront rule and if an SP delivers a shitty service for no valid reason, then you can review her here.

    I am not so convinced about this assertion. A scam should always be exposed here. But a customer who splits without paying can do this a lot and suffer no repercussions.

    GG, the only thing I'm assuming is that each indvidual, whether agency owner, escort or client, knows what is best for himself or herself. Anyone can make a rule that suits his or her own indvidual needs. We don't need General Gonad making new rules for everyone.
    Strasser: By the way, the murder of the couriers, what has been done?
    Renault: Realizing the importance of the case, my men are rounding up twice the usual number of suspects.

    Legilating assholeness out of the world

    GG,

    I do not think that you can legislate assholeness out of the equation no matter how many rules you try to put in place, and btw good luck on having the entire hoobing population follow you on that!

    Although I can see the spirit is in the rigth place I just do not think that the proposal will:

    1. Work

    2. Have the desired effect

    Should anyone stiffing a SP be punished for his misdeed? Sure, off course. Are we all going to get on board and start using the GG rule number 1 of hoobing and even more importantly will this work to keep assholes from stiffing girls somehow? No.


    I can see the heart is in the rigth place, but I think this needs more thinking
