I guess it is better to have and not need than to need and not have; but what is the limit?

Today it is friday and rainy and I worked till about 1:00 A.M., so I am just sitting in my study looking out the window and getting myself together to head into the studio and take care of a few things. But as I sit here looking out, I just started laughing out loud. Laughing because I was thinking about a few things that occured this week, and they are freaking hilrious. Therefore I am going to blog something hilarious that occur during my week each friday.

One of my clients asked me to set up a test shoot with a few models. I contacted the models to schedule the shoots ( no I am not quite there where someone picks up the phone and handle that sort of business for me yet, and even when I get quite there, I just may continue to do this myself just because). One of the models seemed really excited and at the same time very cautious almost to the point of paranoid. She seemed over precautious about shooting with photograpers she had never met before (go figure). Well after ensuring her that it would be okay to bring an escort or an entire busload if she wanted since we were meeting in a public place, she got really excited. She continued to stay in contact up to the shoot day via email and a couple of phone calls. Then on the day of the shoot, literally minutes before the shoot, I get an email from her informing me that she would not be attending the meeting because one of her escorts would not be able to make it???? HUH?? I was only teasing about the busload. I am not at all anti-escort as many photographers I talk with are, but apparently she doesn't travel with just one anywhere, as she stated in her email. She then sent me another email later on apologizing again and assuring me that she definitely wanted to work together with me so wanted to know when she could reschedule. I informed her that she would need to contact the client that set up the meeting and not me, but not to expect too much sympathy because all the other models showed up with no problem for the meeting and without even having a single escort. I had to ask her how ever did she go to the grocery store or a doctor appointment. How do you deal with a situation like this? What would you have done differently?
