"I started taking a lunch hour"


  

          

for the first time in 10 years, I'm getting away from my office and outside of the building for approximately an hour daily.

The theory being that moving around a little and getting some fresh air will wake me up, motivate me, and give me perspective.

You know what though. It's just one more opportunity to not want to go back in the building.

It does help if I get coffee though.

Oh, and if I take a late lunch so my day's more than halfway over when I go back in.

half the time I have a book with me, the other half I leave it at home thinking "Oh I don't need to bring a book" jesus christ where is my head.

If I take lunch late, it's just one more reason not to go back.

do you think i should be back in there filing papers or doing work that should be delegated but the delegates are clueless so i gotta do it

in that hour can you walk far enough away to escape the shadow of shame cast by your building

im not trying to talk shit but you remind me of my sister, she too is shackled to her job day and night, and i just want to hug people like you when taking time for ones self is considered an act of rebellion or something necessary for survival

its easy being a guy. we just wank.

I'm chained by outside elements, such as the need for money with which to purchase cat food. I'm feeling very strongly about following The Rules, no more overtime, take my scheduled "breaks" and "lunch", and leave on the dot of my scheduled work day.

I have been the most loyal and dedicated employee for more than 10 years and I'm not seeing any benefit from that, so I'm like fuck it, I will be a worker and not a partner.

You are too loyal.

Take that break every day. You earned it

i only get a half hour for lunch but I take 45 minutes cause I don't give a fuck. That work isn't going anywhere.
