We are having some work done in our humble home. The builder doing the work is very diligent.
On his first day here I offered him a cuppa but he doesn't drink hot drinks. Since then, I've not offered any more. This lunch time as my hubby, child and I tucked into our meals, I was in a quandary over whether to offer him some food. In the end, thanks to an upbringing where guests are always offered food, I offered him a sarnie even though technically, he's not a guest.
What's the correct etiquette here? Tea and biscuits, a full lunch, a party to celebrate his accomplishments at the end of the job? As usual my first port of call was Google which led me to the British Etiquette Revival site but alas, there was no help there. And I really don't want to resort to a Debrett's guide to etiquette or good manners.
Until I find some definitive guidance, I'll just offer drinks and food and if it's refused, not worry.
