I wonder how many photographers on here would ever want to reschedule a shoot with me after what happened yesterday. Keep in mind that the photographer i was supposed to shoot with isn't on this site... and you can't make this stuff up. *sigh*

Yesterday morning I was scheduled to shoot at 8:00 am in agoura hills. I got up, started getting ready, found that 2 of my four outfits were slept on by my dog- who went into heat for the first time [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/blush.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img]. So, I quickly replaced them and headed out- alone- while my boyfiend/escort went to the vet [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img]. I called the photographer about 20 minutes before 8:00 to say id be a few minutes late.

I got lost. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/mad.gif[/img]I got on the freeway going the wrong way and ended up in Fillmore- which is about an HOUR away from my destination. I had no cell phone. I called from a pay phone to explain and apologize. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img] He said no worries, he'd head home and wait for me. I decided to call my dad for directions and broke the payphone. Out of SIX phones- i broke 4, one was already dead, and one was occupied by a REALLY CREEPY dude. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/mad.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img]

I start going the right way, am about to change freeways when- blub blub puke- my car runs out of gas. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img] Luckilly some man with a truck, a motorcycle, and a gas can saved me. Well, with enough to get to the gas station. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

At the station I get a broken pump, whick SPRAYS gasoline all over my legs and car. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/mad.gif[/img]I call one last time to say "I think we're going to have to reschedule after, Im so sorry." Before i went inside the station and proceeded to take out my ENTIRE bad morning on the unfortunate attendands, who washed my car and gave me gas gift cars to make up for my ruined pants (which actually cost $3 [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img])

Would you beleive that if you got called with it? Would you consider giving her (me, whatever) the same priority as before she called with a wild excuse? Or would you do what i'd expect and take her a LITLLE less seriously?

All this talking, I guess Ill supply an image [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img] i had food poisoning the day before this shoot, so you know Im not one for excuses [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

The gods did not want you to go!

I would believe you for not showing due to the fact that your story is too bizarre to have been made up.

Hope everyone is OK today.

Jim

If I was the photographer, I'd believe the story. It is out there. Too out there to not be true. Of course, that day he might not of wanted you in his studio, if you know what I mean.

And if the picture you posted was you, the photogrpaher would be crazy to not give you another chance [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]

if you had added, to all the things that *did* happen, being abducted by aliens or having a grandmother die for the third time in less than a month, it would have been a porn star's typical run-down of events for flaking.

Let me guess...you had money on the Seahawks.

Hope your luck is better today and in the future.

No, I think I had money on the cute guy who kept screwin up though. Hope it wasn't too much... cuz i dont remember the terms [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img]
My boyfriend and i feel the same about football, but he likes to be around people. So after my PSP died, I played chess with the dog... Moving the bowl of dip and watching him sneak over to get close before i moved it again [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] It was fun.

Thanks! He is giving me another chance, not that he shoots with too many models anyway, so i guess he kinda has t dea with it. I was kinda sad because i was so angry it literally made my hair curl, i had the prettiest little spirals. But i smelled like gasoline... [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img]

Haha, it was all before 10:00am, a little early for aliens. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] I've never made stuff up to get out of a shoot... unless i got there and the photographer was a total creep; or totally creepy. Then my cell phone rings and suddenly my little sister ran away... again... and my mom is sooo upset. (Yeah, I have a brother) [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] Heh heh... no way am i telling someone "You're creepy, we're leaving..."

I would believe you for these reasons.

1. I Know you.

2. When I spoke to you on Saturday you seemed to be looking forward to it.

3. Your cell doesn't always work.

4. I have seen you drive [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/shocked.gif[/img]

5. I have seen what you drive. No "GPS" there [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

And Finally

6. I have seen first hand how you lite up when you see a photograph of yourself that makes you happy. A sign I have come to realize seperates the flaky wanna be's from the ones who care about and have fun with there art! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img]
