No. Used to in the 80's when it was known as the two martini lunch at the office. Of course I didn't drink martinis so there were a few times I had a good buzz coming back to the office after killing a couple pitchers with a couple other people. The afternoon was a complete waste though.
That's a shame. A margarita would have gone excellent with my fajita's...
When I was younger, yes :beer:
I dont see a problem with it unless you're the guy who comes
back and acts like they've had alcohol for lunch.
Depends, are you the brewmaster for a beer company?
depends, but generally no.
I don't drink, so that would be a no.
naw, not socially acceptable in the states. too bad, as I was at a great italian place friday and a glass of wine would have been amazing.
Depends entirely on the company, the situation, and the job level.
My current job and position - absolutely not.
My previous job was working as a (high-level) IT grunt at a drilling company. A beer or two at lunch was almost a requirement. Especially if you with managers or above.
I've worked at a few places where it was the norm for a friday lunch, but not anymore.
A little puff-puff is a different story though.
can, but don't
no, not if i'm going back to work afterwards.
When I worked for a small gen-gineering firm back in Ohio, we (whole company, boss included) would go across the street to the local brewpub for burgers and pitchers once in a while.
Where I work now, that wouldn't go over so well... but many people head down to RedHook on Friday evening after work.
Only when I was in the military. :eek:
YOU'RE ALL A BUNCH OF NAMBY-PAMBYS! Always drink at lunch. It's the fundamental right of all people to enjoy alcohol whenever possible.
That said, I don't actually have a job, so maybe you shouldn't listen to me.
Well, since I'm a teacher, I have 30 minutes for lunch, and being the young, "cool" teacher, rumors already float about what I spend my weekends doing, I don't think it'd be too prudent...
I have the occasional beer at lunch with a couple of my customers.
