No, I don't come with the car/boat/hot tub.
I sometimes work as a model at various car shows, boat shows, hot tub shows, or other events where a model or similar eye candy was needed/wanted. I don’t mind the guys flirting with me, I know to expect it considering the outfits I’m required to wear for these jobs…but it gets annoying when they keep asking the SAME joke over and over “Do YOU come with the car/boat/hot tub/jet ski/etc.?” I really hate it when they actually reach out and try to touch me, or slip me their business cards (which I throw in the trash right in front of them). I’m in a reltionship. Fortunately I can call security if they get out of hand like that, though I only hail security if these creeps try to touch me or one of the other ladies.
If they want to take photos, that’s fine, but DO NOT try to climb over the velvet ropes or onto the platform (especially when the signs say to “Keep Off The Platform” and try to put your arm around me to pose while your friend takes the picture. You can stand in front of me, and we can fit in the frame of the photo your friend takes if he steps back a bit. Not that hard. The velvet ropes and “keep off the platform” policies are there for your safety. We’re not responsible if you fall and get hurt just because you wanted to pose too close for comfort with one of the ladies.
It isn’t cute or flirty when you say you want to drive home with that car and me tied up, gagged, and locked in the trunk of that car. That’s really creepy. It’s also messed up when you say that you want to tie me to the bow of that boat, like a the figurehead on a sailing ship. And don’t ask to climb in that hot tub with me the signs clearly say that you may not. And no, we are not allowed to pose sitting in tandem on the jet ski or on the motorcycle for photos, customers aren’t allowed on the vehicles at all, and most of the time neither are the models.
These conventions and expos are not a place to pick up dates.
