    If you were on a service call and were singlie and saw someone of interest, while on a service call, would you make a hint?

    An example: I did a job at a church last week, where the secratary seemed very nice. No ring. I wanted to ask her up for dinner, or ask if she was single.

    But how, or is there even a way, to do it without looking un professional?

    Some of the guys I work with tell me to "Go ahead, ask her out to dinner". But that, to me, would not make me look too professional, and would be mighty embarrasing if she said no and I ended up back there at a later date for service.

    A guy that once worked for us, actually met his first wife on a service call. He never actually told me this, but one of the other guys that worked there at the time told me after he left, so I never got to ask him how he did it.

    I just don't think it would look good on me or the comapny to ask someone out while on the job.

    Post your opinions!

    Get business taken care of, then ask her out. Not too heavy, though. Maybe a lunch date. Let 'er get to know ya. That'll give 'er a fair start.
    No reserve. No retreat. No regrets.

    For those who have fought for it, freedom has a sweetness the protected will never know.

    I don't think that you would look un professional, matter fact if she is a Christian she will understand that God can have her new husband walk right through the door, as you did on your service call, You know if there was good eye contact and you two hit it off in 5-minutes and if so well ask her, I am betting she will say yes if she has no boy friend.

    Call her back and start asking questions about the church.

    Say you feel kind of shy going alone. Tell her you want to take a new direction in your life.



    Who knows, you may get to pound the fear of god into her.

    Man, you are just asking for trouble. There is history in the courts of that being considered sexual harrassment, even though you don't work for the same company. I learned this a few years ago during a training seminar on customer service and all that jazz. With that being said though, if you are interested you can try this:

    Go after work, out of company uniform and not in company truck, and then ask her out. You can tell her you can't stop thinking of her and would like to ask her to lunch someday. If you go to church normally (or not) try her church where she works at. You know she goes there since most secrataries work for their own church.

    What ever you do, protect yorself and your company froma lawsuit and/or loss of business.

    Years ago,I was doing a supermarket remodel and asked the district manager out. Man she was sweet and great to look at, and we saw each other for awhile. Just too yuppy for me, and I broke it off. I have no problem with it. As someone said, just don't go too heavy.

    Jeezum Shane. He's not gonna go in begging for sex, just ask her if she's like to have lunch. If you think there's lawsuit potential there, I'm surprised you even get out of bed in the morning.

    Go for it ask her out. I wouldn't go to her church on Sunday though and do it, she might consider that a bit like a stalker. I would do the call back that seems nice, just check that everythings going good with the job you did.

    She will probably give you a chance seeing that you have a good job and all.

    Good luck,

    Ask her to come with you and live a life of lies and deceit.
