mainly cold water or pop..

I don't mind hose bib water as long as the hose isn't attached

Sometimes I get the cool lady who goes over board and brings out the pitcher of water with ice and some snacks

Anyone else get offered a beer time to time? I just say I'm on company time

There's been a couple of times where I have the customer's house water off.. I'm busting my ass so i'll just grab a water out of their fridge in the garage

I will take a beer if it is a customer that I have a more casual relationship with but it has to be at the end of the day like my last service call before i head home or I will feel like a
bum

I accept any drink for a client. It's rude to say no...especially if they offer a cold beer at the end of the day--I'll hang around longer

I got some customers who like to pour a glass of good wine, and I arrange those calls to finish a day.
