'look, just fuck off' should be the accepted response yeah?
Cos it's so damn true
I don't even want my colleagues to look at me during the lunch hour.
you should be allowed to put the phone down on someone when it gets to lunch time. No exceptions, i'll call you back at one.
but yeah i totally agree.
so busy today.
no real harm in answering, just take extra time at the end of lunch
like tap your watch or just stuff your face with sandwich and stare at them while you eat it
They probably don't even equate me eating food with being on lunch
Are you staying in the same place for lunch? Maybe you should go outside or something. Or write 'ON LUNCH' on the palm of your hand and hold it up. I did that once except I wrote 'NOT THE MANAGER'. I was really stressed that day
cos I have things to sort out as well as looking at DiS.
It was more that it wasn't a 10 second 'have you done this etc' it was a 5 minute explanation of what this person (who ISN'T my boss though she does seem to think so) would like me to do when I have sole responsibility for the work for 3 weeks in May.
if you having full responsibility for the work also allowed you to change some rules around the place what would you do?
You could extend lunch by an hour and become a dictator for the rest of the time so all the work gets done
buns and cakes and ice pops and more buns and biscuits
except I take a huge bite of sandwich as soon as someone looks like they're about to ak me something, then look at them and shrug as if to say "oh I'd love to help but as you can see I have a ridiculous amount of bread in my mouth."
Customers will never ask you things unless 1) you're on your way in to start a shift and are probably running late as well, 2) on your strictly-timed 15 minute break or 3) on your way home.
which is part of lunch (i'd give them 4/5) and being asked to make initial contact with three TB clinics in Zambia.
i'm showing them the pom-bear.
Putting your fingers in your ears and ssaying "La, la, la, I can't hear you!"
our team leaders make and exception and human reasources alter our lunch hour.
Get to fuck
but to be fair I guess that's what I get for eating my lunch at my desk. Usually if I really want a break I got outside particularly when it's a day like today.
