The sanctity of the lunch break.

Hungry meets tired.
Desk equals banquet table.
Damn your noon meeting.
                                                -That Tad Guy-San

Here are the rules and they are immutable:
·      If you’ve made me work through four lunch breaks this week, I’m taking a long lunch on Friday
·      If you schedule a mandatory meeting over the lunch hour, at least have the courtesy to bring snacks
·      If there’s a meeting over lunch, it better have a point and a client
·      Scheduling meetings for either 11:30 a.m. and 1 p.m. still makes you a jerk, even if there’s a legitimate reason for it
·      If you’re going to cater lunch, order food you yourself would eat—not just the convenient option
·      Cafeterias and vending machines assuage the physical while ignoring the mental
·      It’s amazing how much the soul can be fed with just five minutes outside
