I was contacted by a woman this week who wanted pictures for her boyfriend. She had been to my website and loved my work We agree on a time for the shoot, a price and what what to be shot. I gave her my street address. She wrote back...she couldn't find it on mapquest. I told her I would give her specific directions if she told me from which direction she would be coming.

"I'm coming from the HEB area." For those of you outside of Texas, HEB is a grocery chain. I figured she couldn't be THAT stupid. It would be like saying, "I'm coming from McDonalds" Then I remembered that HEB is also an area between Dallas and Fort Worth....Hurst, Euless and Bedford. I emailed back..."You know I'm in Austin, right?"

Her reply..."Austin! I thought you were in Dallas. I guess I have to cancel then."

hmmmmmmmmmmmm
stupid or just stupid!

Do you know your zip code?
If they know that, then I can help them with the rest.

When I was getting started, I contacted a Model that I thought was in WALNUT (which is a local Southern California city) and after we talked back and ofrth over days of emaills, I gave her my address and she comes back saying she is about 7 hours away in WALNUT CREEK (big difference)...

Or, maybe even, a Fort Worth photographer (seeing as HEB bumps up to Fort Worth on the northeast side of town and Dallas is all the way on the other side of the world!) [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]
