So I've met some amazing and interesting clients in my years of doing readings, yet some are more memorable than others for reasons soon to be made obvious. After a funny experience today, I thought I'd post my top ten Psychic Pet Peeves:
1) Clients who leave their cell phones on and then when said cell phone rings, client answers phone and proceeds to have a ten minute conversation.
2) When scheduling an appointment, client asks, "How about giving me a preview so I know you're legit?"
3) Clients who say at the end of a reading, "Is it time to cross your palm with silver?"
4) Clients who say, "I don't believe in this mumbo jumbo, but I thought it'd be fun to give it a try."
5) People who, after I tell them it's probably not a good idea to continue the affair with the married man, proceed to tell me in detail that they can't leave because the sex is so good. Yikes.
6) This conversation: "Did your dad pass away in a car accident?"
Client: "What color was the car?"
Client: "Okay, well what make and model?"
You've got to love skeptics.
7) Or this conversation: "Your mom is showing me that the month of January is important in your family. Is there a birthday, anniversary or death passing in January?"
Me: "Are you sure? Because she keeps showing me January."
Client: "Well, my parents got married in January."
Me: "So, isn't that an anniversary?"
Client: "It's not my anniversary. I got married in May."
8) And this conversation for sure: "Your grandfather wants you to know that he's proud of the college scholarship you earned."
Client: "He saw that?"
Me: "Yes, and he likes the new house you just bought."
Client: "That's great. Tell him thanks. Now, can you tell me who the next guy in my life is and when will I meet him?"
Me: (What I feel like saying) "So you're grandfather just used up a lot of energy, time and love to travel through several dimensions to tell you that he loves you, he's proud of you and he still checks in on you and all you care about is who's the next guy coming into your life? Give me a break.
9) Telling a client that she's creating bad karma by having an affair and becoming pregnant with a child who's paternity she's unsure of, and having that client shrug and say, "That's okay. I don't believe in karma."
10) Clients who "no show" and then expect me to have an appointment available for them "ASAP."
In all honesty, I love, adore and appreciate my clients. But some give me a chuckle now and then!
