    got one with a place on the lake,who invites me out now and then.
    file it under perks
     
  3. No, I don't swim in the clients pool, I have one of my own to enjoy. I only have 2 clients with pools.
     
  4. I'm with you on that one AWM
     
  5. Oh I do it all the time esp. when the husband is at work.

    Sorta like the old movie staring Burt Lancaster called the
    "Swimmer".

    Would driving the Lazer into the lake count? I haven't done that yet but I've read where people have.:D

    Lawngodfather,
    It doesnt allow me to vote?

    I would decline the swimming because Im hairier than a dog. But would accept an invite to mingle around the pool.

    Let me guess, your going swimming Saturday:)

    :D
    Most of my customers have very nice pools, they are always saying to get into pool, because no one uses it anymore. I had declined all the time, but last year I was trimming bushes,etc. for a customer and he comes out and says, when you finish take a shower in pool house and get in the pool to cool down. It was about 99 degrees, and 100 percent humidity that day. I finished and cleaned up and went swimming. While I was swimming the customer and wife made dinner and we had a nice dinner on the deck, this is what makes it worthwile to do what we do everyday. Most of the time I tell them I have more jobs to do, but I have used their pool a few times, they are so glad when I do, so why not make them happy. :D

    I delivered furniture for 14 years and had a few offers. I always said no though. Always thought it was a bit strange since I just met them and only knew them for about a half hour while I made the delivery.
    At least in this biz you get to know them a bit, so I guess it doesn't seem so strange.
    Haven't had the offer since in the biz, but I would still decline.
