Some of these are truly amusing. I do not have a large non-child portfolio and wanted to get some adult females to model for me. I had one set up for an outdoor session. She called me saying that there was a major accident and a friend of hers was in it. I asked her where it was. Normally, I would have some sympathy, but what she didn't realize that the area the wreck should have been in was in the district where I'm a medic. I took a look and saw that our squads didn't respond to any calls. She kept calling and calling and calling about re-scheduling. I finally told her that I knew she was lying to be about it and we wouldn't be re-scheduling. I loved the look on her face. It was priceless.

Thats great!

I had a model tell me she rear ended an ambulance, when I asked what ambulance she replied."Nanuet" I replied with interesting, because we only have one rig in service and I was on it the time of your so called "accident." She hung up on me, and not even a minute later I got a text saying that i'm a f***in piece of s**t for catching her in a lie.

I'm glad I never worked with her.

Not so much an excuse as none was really given. Back story was I had shot with this girl before and she was keen to do more so I set up a shoot off Island on another small Island know for its sandy beaches. Also we would be doing some shots on the boat across all of which I had set up over the last few weeks. I was talking to the girl and her mate up to an hour on face book and all seemed ok. I went to pick them up only to find they were not coming. The kicker was they would not even face me and I had to ring them from out side of their houses to only find out they would not be coming. I had taken a day off work to do the shoot which was then lost and to top it off I then had to go and let the people know that I would not need the boat. How small do you thing this made me feel. It did/has really knocked me for six and I have lost a lot of faith in people because of this.


The wife says I never listen or something like that.

I have so many flakes and no shows its unbelievable but i would have to say the best excuse that i have heard was:
"I stubbed my toe and caught a disease so i have to go to the hospital to get it fixed"

I think i hung up because i started to laugh

Grandmothers are definitely an endangered speciaes on MM. Apparently, all models have 8 of them too.

we should start a donation box for all the model's grandmothers and proceeds will go towards the funerals of the verified deaths...

I am sure we will be rich with all the money we put in that never gets claimed...

I feel your pain, as I've gone through some similar crap with models over the years. At least you didn't loose extra money on a boat rental (if that's any consolation).

I normally don't get an excuse. When my models flake, they usually just flat out don't show up, disappear, and stop answering their phone.
