I dont mean subby to vendor or subbie to subbie, I mean a client who pays a vendor and is nothing to to with the industry.

By that I mean, how would your client react if for instance "have you sent them a notification/confirmation and then straight after your comminicate with say someone you know very well" and by accident whilst communicating with say someone close, you have accidently fired off the comminucation whithout realising to your client????

Scenario.. time.. its early say 6am.. place somewhere in europe 1) Arrive early at said location, so Inform my client Im there by txt. 2) I txt a friend... saying "Morning sexy how are you" 3) 9am heard nothing by txt, then my friend "txts" when looking realised the one you sent has not arrived with said friend, then you think the worst.. 4) upon checking your messages you then see it "OH NOOOO!" youve sent it to your client... ooops 5) then you inform your client of said cockup..

Well it seems my client bless him says he will get ready for me to take him out.. and yes he saw the very funny side of it..

Glad said client wasnt female, it could have gone either way.

Have you ever been in a red faced situation? if so would love to hear about it..

I had a text from the boss of one of the companies I sub for informing me that "It's the little white box on the mantelpiece XXX".

I sent him one back that read, "I've had a look on the mantelpiece and I can't see any white box XXX!"

I had a text from the boss of a company I used to deal with asking if he could come round with a box of chocolates, bottle of wine and a film. I sent him one back saying " forget the wine, bring me half a dozen cans of draught Guinness" He didn't reply :-)
