Most days, I eat lunch where I work, I bring it from home. But everyday the same two women are in the breakroom with me and every single day one of them comes in and says that she don't have time to eat and then stays there longer than I do. Then after they get settled they talk about how the are going to/have been to/ will be weighed at Curves (Which I am starting to think that it is a cult). I guess that is why I only take about 20 mintues of my lunch instead of my full 45.


So who do you each lunch with?

Myself...at my desk...eating the SHTF supplies I have here at work.
Eating right now...a concoction of instant rice, cup-of-soup (tomato) and 1/2 pack of foil wrapped cooked ground beef.

Testing out different recipies for camping/shtf scenarios.

In front of the work station logged on to ARFCOM.

I usually grab a sandwich from Blimpie or something close by and eat here at my desk alone while surfing Arfcom and the web. I don't have any close friends here at work that I associate with. I actually prefer my privacy most of the time. Sometimes a coworker will stand around while I'm eating and I HATE it. Sometimes my best friend will be in the area while he's working and we'll go eat though.

I go home for lunch most of the time. Just me and the cats. Sometimes I go out to the local taqueria, usually by myself.

eta: opps. Thought it was what do you eat lunch with. I'll just keep my answer the same though.

Usually in the downstairs cafeteria of my office building with a colleague.

Most days, I go out for lunch with the boobalicious secretary. Today, though, I met a friend of mine for a triple BLT at a shit-hole bar. If Ms. Boobalicious isn't able to go, I go alone. I get enough of the morons that I work with during the day; I'd rather not have my lunch spoiled by their inane drivel. The problem with going to lunch with work people is that they only ever want to talk about work.

Usually with my daughter. I work midnights so I am home in the afternoon. I am usually eating cold food since I feed her first.

Usually it's the cafeteria here at work with the same group of friends. We always try and go out for lunch at least once a week.

I go home and the wife serves me lunch. It's nice to live close to work (10 minutes).

No one.
I don't eat lunch. Just an early dinner.

Not really much point in taking a lunch break since I get off at 2:00, I just eat then.
Link Posted: 3/16/2005 9:35:36 AM EST
All my Arfcom internet buddies

At the PC (in my office) on ARFCOM.

Time well spent.

Tried to eat in our break room, but when you get 2-3 people wanting to talk to you about work and what I need to do for them, well you become a little anti-social......

I don't eat lunch.
I get an hour for lunch - just long enough for me to get in a 3 mile jog and a shower before getting back to the office.
The jog kind of clears my stress level and gets those endorphins flowing!
Link Posted: 3/16/2005 9:46:06 AM EST
Here at my desk with you guys most days - either something I brought from home or something from the Chick-fil-A on the ground floor of my office building.

I used to go out with a crowd from here at the office every day. I would say that I've saved money by "staying in," but I'm sure the deals I've found here on EE have cost much, much more than those lunches would have...

I used to be able to do that! God as my witness, I will be able to do that again someday soon!

Right now, I get off work early so I just wait til I get home to eat. Most of my co-workers are schizo (they'd say the same about me) so we don't do lunch. I use my lunch time as Internet time.

Well, my wife comes home for lunch, and since I am usually awake by then, we have lunch together...

+1. Every other week or so when my wife is off work she'll drive over with our little boy and we'll go have lunch together somewhere.
