You HAVE have you?

Two question I've wondered. You are somewhere on the East Coast and
you speak with a propective client several states away. During the
discussion, it comes up that you aren't in the area, but you will be
by the time the gig starts.

- How does he take that. Is he concerned that you'll change your
mind? I know it shouldn't be different than anyone else changing
their mind, but I'd imagine that being on wheels makes you seem even
less stable.

- Is there any concern that you'll pickup in the middle of the night?
If you live there, it's harder to change your residence. Being mobile
involves detaching a few lines and cables and you're off.

Have you experienced any stability issues in the eyes of the
prospective client?
