Let me start off by saying that my best and most memorable experiences have been with Chris and Devilish.
Having said that, it somewhat pains me to post my experiences, but I think it's important enough to share...
Arriving in Montreal with a party of five other guys, we initially weren't sure how open everyone would be to getting an SP of their own. Initially, we had a pretense of a toy show in the bachelor's room, followed by those that so chose getting "private shows" of their own. With this in mind, I called Devilish at 1 pm. Chris answered the phone, and I was honestly surprised to hear him answer, and hear him answer so early in the evening. I told him what our situation was, and he seemed like he understood exactly what kind of situation we were in. He advised me to call back after 3:30 so that he would know exactly what kind of lineup he would have available.
Shortly thereafter, in talking to the group, we became aware that no one was squeamish and that everyone wanted their own SP. However, they all asked me to handle the booking...
I called Devilish back at 3:30, 3:45, 4:00, 4:30, and 5:00. Each phone call went straight to voice mail. I left messages on three of the calls, specifically recalling our earlier conversation and stating that our plans for the rest of the evening were on hold and contingent upon our scheduling of the SP's for that evening.
I never received a call back or anything other then the direct to voice mail.
I had actually booked Leah of Eleganza for myself much earlier, before my comrades revealed their true colors and stopped pretending to be prudes. Joe was answering the phone for John, and was very helpful. Even more, I wanted Leah's first shift for two hours. He told me she was starting at 7:30, but since she was booked at 9:30 already, he could only give me an hour and a half. Very reasonable, considering he could have just booked the two hour appointment and made up an excuse as to why she was late for her 9:30. I decided to try calling Eleganza for my five other friends. Not only was Joe able to help book everyone a visit that evening, he was able to book everyone at around the same time, so that we would still have the remainder of our evening free together.
In addition, Joe gave me a call and let me know that Leah was running slightly late. I mention this because I understand and accept that girls running late are part and parcel of this game, but I've never gotten a call from Chris to let me know that the girls are slightly behind schedule. I certainly don't EXPECT the call, because I ASSUME the girls will probably be running late, but it's nice when the call is there.
Let me also say that this was my first real experience booking with Eleganza.
Everyone had a wonderful time.
I never did get a call back from Chris. In fact, the next night, we were looking for some more appointments, and I called Devilish again... same result. Straight to voice mail.
Which leads me to wonder... did Devilish fall victim to what plagues so many successful small businesses? That is, the inability to adapt to rapid growth, yet maintain the same quality that made them successful? I sure hope that isn't the case, because the Devilish girls I've booked have always said how much they enjoy working for his agency. Now, if the phone lines could just keep pace with the demand...
