Default I Said "No" to Water

. . . when offered by the person at reception. Then I panicked. Would they cancel the meeting on the spot? Send my name around town on a special "Refused Water" blacklist . . . the kind you don't wanna be on? Commence perspiration and paranoid thoughts of doom and gloom.

When I finally met with the Exec, he offered me a water from his mini-fridge and I accepted. Whew. That was a close one.

So now they think you're wishy-washy.

I said no to water at a Bold Films meeting because I was distracted by Stephanie Wilcox's ass.. Or at least I hope I said no.

Has anyone ever asked for anything other than water? I'm tempted to say "appletini" next time.

This reminds me of the Seinfeld where Kramer asks the shrink for a decaf-cappuccino. "It's a very popular drink!"

No means no, and anything else is just harassment.

Default Re: I Said "No" to Water

I now recall general meetings based on the types of water they offer. Arrowhead is the default. GK Films offers Fiji. Cineflix offers VOSS. Bad Robot has an entire 7-Eleven collection of beverages, including specialty teas you can only get at Japanese supermarkets. Disney Animation has an entire coffee bar where the barista makes any drink you want.

I keep a collection of empty bottles in my office that I just fill with tap water depending on how important the writer is. If it's someone important, I'll use the Fiji bottle or the Evian one. If it's Hamboogul, he gets the Ozarka.

Just make sure you don't ask for sparkling water.
