Maybe you can get something good out of this - call Verizon and pitch this story to them as an idea for their next 'dropped call' commercial! That might be the only good that could come from a situation such as this.

Everyone

Lets send her our press material and when she calls next year, tell her we are too busy but she should call Nicholas because he is the best in the area.

Yes Nicholas,

it's called NEXT!! the type of message she left shows a "classy lady" the type you would LOVE to work with wouldn't ya??

As shocking as it may seem not all people are nice there are actually some JERKS out there - my rule is to never argue, but simply run as fast as you can - you will never win, she will always treat you like dirt since you "owe" her so what's the point??? You CAN"T win with people like this - ever!!! Don't waste your time dude!!!

The only way to deal with these losers to not engage with them as they will lower you to their level...

Just my 2 cents..

Maybe she had a bad day ( or life ). I'd try to conenct with her and explain what hapepned. Give her the chance to say she's sorry. Not to get the gig, but to do some healing. If she still acted liek that, say a prayer for her ( yep, right on the phone to her ) and forgive and move on.

Nope. Just move on. All by yourself.

Not every contact is worth "polishing up and achieving closure."

This is just a casual encounter, not a relationship. Forget about it and spend your time and energy on more positive and (potentially) fruitful contacts.

Please, oh please, do NOT bother contacting her, as lots of people are saying, she's a bad prospect and you need to drop her like a stone then chalk it up to experience.

Nick,
You started this post in November and I wonder what did you do? I also wonder if you would dare post the response because no matter what you say you will tick off about half the posters on here one way or another.

There was nothing I could do in the end. I had no number or name, just some idle threats from a private number.

I didn't really care for her business as I am pretty busy as it is. My concern is that if I didn't smooth things over she would tell her friends that Tricky Nick was a jerk.

It's about the bigger picture, people complain about a bad experience!

(I'm not talking from personal experience but from talking to numerous very successful people...magicians, mentalists, cold readers, and hypnotists...)

"As you become more and more suceessful, if you're not upsetting people, then you're doing something wrong!"

If it was a big booker of talent, like the MD of 'Showtime' (or in the UK, the GD of the BBC), then yes, I would try really hard to clear things up, but if it's just 'John Doe' then I wouldn't bother.

Hey, who knows, one of the people that she tells, may just phone you up to see how big a jerk 'Tricky Nicky' really is?

It's a good idea, but you'd better call AT&T. They were the ones with the "dropped calls" commercials... Smile

Perhaps a lesson here is to use a landline for your business calls. Cell and "internet phone" service is way more likely to drop calls then a traditional telephone line. Of course, you can't control what phone service the caller has, but at least you can do your part.

Sometimes the people who are quick to get mad are the ones who love you forever later.

I had a customer take offense at something I said but she was a fantatstic customer. There was a bit of a cultural difference going on that mader her much more expressive than I am used to in clients (but not in coworkers I've had from the same country).

I hope this gets cleared up. My customer called for quotes one year and remembered me for a whole year before she could hire me!

Go ahead and call her back and get that gig. When you get there set up a bizarre/sideshow act with blood and evil spirits, scare the crap out of all of them and don't charge a dime. I know it doesn't sound very professional but I guarantee I'll feel better about this whole thing. I think you will too, lol.

I would say call her back or write her, you may not want to work for her but I bet you might want to work for her company, friend, next door neighbor...you get the idea.

She has friends even if it may not seem like it, it is better she is saying good things about you than bad.
