I hate it when people schedule meetings during lunch. It's just so inconsiderate.
@allan I think anyone who does that should be obligated to provide lunch, at the very least.
@ink_slinger @allan Yes! But also intelligent conversation. If I’m having lunch with you, it should be worth my time, and pleasant.
@jay @ink_slinger I prefer my lunches to be work-free zones. If I'm eating with coworkers we should resist the urge to talk about work, because we are off the clock and I don't think about work for free.
@allan @jay Oh, I agree. Booking meetings over lunch is not cool at all. I'm just saying, if it's unavoidable for some reason (it rarely is), you'd better at least buy me lunch.
@allan My former manager called them "Lunch 'n Learns" and I absolutely hated the theft of my lunch hour.
@jamie sadly, in this case we weren't learning anything or eating lunch. It was a routine work meeting, just in the middle of lunch hour.
