On days the IT team is feeling semi-social we venture forth into the great unknown of Lunch!
Doesn’t sound exciting, I know. Until you realize the average lunch escapade for any IT member involves:
- Bringing your own lunch from home – and eating at your desk.
- Hitting fast food drive thru as quickly as possible – and eating at your desk.
- Keeping snack items stashed away in various drawers and cabinets – and eating at your desk.
- Running home to escape people and grab some yummy vittles – and avoiding your desk.
On this, day of days, however, the entire IT team decided we’d harken forth to a local eatery. Traveling, en-pack, to El Torito we left the dark recesses of our caves.
During lunch we unanimously decide there would be no talk of work.
It may not have been the wisest choice.
Our topics of conversation ranged from politics to midget porn to watcher programs to nanny cams to graveyard shifts to computer forensics to Corvette-Crazies latest date….
The poor gentleman who sat across from us spent much of his meal shaking his head. At some points I think he actually wanted to chime in….at others….I’m sure he questioned how our minds work.
Still….a break from the office, with the crew, especially on a Monday, is always welcome.
