In every single line of work you will find someone who is difficult to work with and displays bad behaviour. While what to do in other workplaces might be clear, when escorting it is a little more difficult. How do you deal with a difficult client?
There are some things you can do to effectively deal with bad behaviour, as well as some steps to take in the future to prevent yourself being put in that situation again. Read on for our tips.
Refusal to pay
Make it very simple when accepting the booking and when they arrive that you expect to be paid at the very beginning, before they go for a shower and before anything else happens. If you have a client refusing to pay up, don’t allow the appointment to continue. They are paying for your time, after all, and if they don’t want to pay then they are wasting it.
Don’t be afraid to turn them away if they won’t pay. Explain to them that turning up without payment ready is unacceptable and that you want them to leave. They will then leave and you don’t have to see them again if you do not want to.
You are being paid for your time and companionship, and unfortunately some people think this means they can treat you poorly and get you to do whatever they want you to. However, they don’t realise that you don’t have to put up with that.
Sometimes it could just be that your client has had a negative experience lately and wants to vent and rant about what happened. In that situation you can sympathise with them and try to get them talking about another topic with you.
However, if you feel they are crossing a line you need to make this clear to them. They may not realise just how rude they are being and sometimes if they are told it can change things dramatically. If their behaviour doesn’t change, then ask them to leave. Explain that you don’t feel comfortable because of their behaviour and that you don’t want to continue with the appointment.
Some people like to play rough, which is fine if they have your consent. If they don’t, and you feel their actions are going too far, tell them to stop. If they try to continue with the rough behaviour that is when you should get them out.
It is never acceptable to hit or attack an escort, and so if you feel threatened try to draw attention from others. Shouting and screaming can help, as can putting distance between you and the client. If you ever find yourself in this situation, and we hope you never do, then do everything you can to get away without injury.
The biggest way to deal with a difficult client is to prevent them from ever entering your incall location. Trust your instincts when speaking to the client on the phone or watching out for their arrival. If something doesn’t feel right it is better to refuse the booking and feel safe than take that risk and end up in danger.
Remember, your safety is the most important, and if you aren’t happy with how things are going you can stop it. It is your right, so use it wisely. Share your safety tips and advice below or over on the Escort Norway forum.
