    total vauxhall photoshoot woes!!

    To say im peed off is an understatement!

    got a call 3 weeks ago now from a journalist representing TV to arrange a photoshoot for my car. Great i thought.
    that day we had provisionally booked the following thursday (last thurs).
    I called on the tuesday before to get some more info, and the guy tells me the photographer wasnt available. fair enough.

    we provisonally booked the following thursday (tomorrow). I called again on friday and was told the photoshoot woild go ahead as the photograper had said he could make it.
    so off i go and book my morining off work (as i did the previous thursday)
    didnt hear from the guy at all. so thought it call him today.

    phone call went like this...

    ME: hello, is this so and so?
    HIM: yes, hi.

    ME: im just wondering if the photoshoot is still going ahead tomo morning for my car?

    HIM: big looong pause. ive only gone and forgotten you havent i.

    if something had come up, then id understand. but the guy just 'forgot'!?

    how can you just forget!?
    at the end of the day, its work. paid work. do you not write it in a diary or something??

    im gutted to say the least.

    he said he would contact dougie and rearrange. but i cant see that happening to be honest.

    im highly let down by TV and their representitive.

    Fast car were very much the same mate with me. But to be fair when the photographer did come down he was very appologetic, but he did have genuine reasons. You any ideas whos coming down to do the shots?

    Stick at it mate, its not TV having second thoughts, photographers are very busy as they work for various mags and its not always car related too.

    Would you have rather he lied to you?

    He's human like the rest of us and we do make mistakes.

    Just gives you more time to get it ready
    The truth is always the truth even if you haven't realised it yet...
