Lunch Hour

I experienced *official* Lunch Hour (tm) today for the first time ever!

In making room in my hours budget (going no more than 7, but having 8 scheduled), I had to take a mid-day break. My normal hours are from 9-1, so I suggested to my boss I break at 1. Nope, I was told I had to go at noon.

Noon. Okay, not so bad, right? WRONG.

I go to my usual spot, meet up with Brian, and we find the line for a sandwich is out the door. So we go across the street instead, and the line isn't so bad, but it's packed. We order before I realize it's packed with people who aren't eating. They're all waiting for their food.

We spent my entire lunch hour waiting for my food. I had 3 minutes to shove my sandwich down my face and drink the rest of my iced coffee (but fuck it, I gave myself 6).

Yep, that's about on par with most people's first hour-long breaks. " Holy shit I have so much ti-- FUCK."

Once a week, I get a two hour break (after 1pm), and the rest is just working through. TOTALLY different than noon, fuck.
