I've been invited to one. Might turn up with a brown bag over my head and a sad face sharpied on.
they got to you too?
if it weren't for these ceaseless working lunches.
just to force them to say "oh but I want to flounce off during that hour because I'm not as good as you"
That's out of order, that.
even though we start at 8am, fuck that.
Need a bit of time to warm up, cup or tea, internet, chat
as its just too busy during the day
Took an extra cake on the way out, because FUCK THE SYSTEM.
Can't even look at them. I blame them.
Free food, doesn't eat into the rest of your day. I only dislike them if it cuts across plans I had for going for lunch with friends, and even then, FREE LUNCH.
Lunch IS my day.
at our place because the uneaten food gets brought up on platters and left by the IT service desk.
It's great to watch, guessing who'll be the first to break. It's always someone pretending to be on their way past the desk, who just happens to go "ooh, sandwiches. Go on then."
Then we all pile in.
A couple of weeks ago I saw the board room, empty, but with loads and loads of food left in there. So me and my mate booked the board room in order to "use the projector," then stuffed our greedy little faces for half an hour.
eat the lunch, sit through the meeting and then just take my actual 'break' afterwards for an hour or whatevs. Just because it's their lunch hour, doesn't mean it has to be your lunch hour.
