    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. [​IMG]

    bought a new 300lb ice machine at the shop back several yrs ago, needless to say it gets a workout this time of year filling up all the coolers
