The lunch conversation at my work starts around 9:45 a.m. about the time the flies are starting to gather around the wadded up McDonalds sacks in the trash cans. It starts with the token "healthy" option from say Jason's Deli and then eventually morphs into somebody driving halfway across the city to pick up a styrofoam container full of cream sauce topped pasta from some Italian place they've been telling everyone about for months. They can't do their job worth a shit, but goddamn if they can't choreograph a ****ing 12 person lunch order all on individual tickets ensuring everybody's shit is pube infested.
I just don't get it.
Honestly I think it's the entitlement factor coming into play. A lot of people hate their jobs, and satisfying the taste buds for 15-20 minutes is a good way to cope with the rest of the bullshit they deal with for the rest of the day. I think the thought process is, okay, I'm going to drag my ass out of bed because I'm afraid of going homeless, but goddammit I'm eating that fattening bullshit for lunch, because I deserve it.
Me? I'm fat, so I eat salad for lunch everyday. And I hate my job. Hopefully nobody dies.
