Written references

I’ve been considering this for a VERY long time and finally came to a decision.  Here’s my new policy for all youse guys out there.

I’m not adding references for friends I’ve seen in the past to Brandy’s site unless

– I’ve specifically asked you, and you specifically said yes

– you request that I do so

– you’re an asshole and I wrote an alert on your sorry self, so any complaints will be promptly filed under “Kiss My Ass”

In the future, I shall ask all gents if they would like me to do a written reference.  I will absolutely take no for an answer, with no hard feelings or getting pissy about it.  I like my reputation as a reliable gal who keeps her word.  If you say no, then it’s a no and you can get references from me by email/PM, as usual. 

Guys, I have to say that I think the idea has a lot of merit.  Corpus is big for short-notice appointments.  With the system Brandy is setting up, never mind it taking hours or days – a guy can get vouched in moments.  Y’all know that sometimes I go days without checking in online, so you can still get referenced by me just by pointing the lady of your choice to Brandy’s forum.   

I’m not putting up anything except transferring a couple of alerts for the next 48 hours.  If you’re one of the guys who gave me permission to write their reference, the delay is to give you time to read this and tell me if you’ve changed your mind.   

Like I said, I’ve thought about this long and hard.  I think this might be the best way to meet everyone’s convenience without causing any bad juju.  If you have further thoughts, feel free to chime in.

  1. NO BAD JUJU! Hey, it’s a system that is there if you choose to use it. Nothing is viewable to the public eye, only verified providers have access and even then personal information (real name, real address, etc) is not allowed. It is a written reference and not a review. Basically Provider A says Client A is safe and there were no problems whatsoever, then Provider B can come along and say yep I saw him too and he is A-OK. Boom you now have two references posted so when you try to schedule with Provider C, instead of her trying to call or email and then wait for a reply, she just needs to log on and go Okay, this guy is okayed by these two legit providers. BAM, verified in less than five minutes!

    BUT I am certainly not one to force anybody to do anything. It’s just an option if you want to use it or not 🙂

    EMILY where have you been!! I miss you!
