When is too early for lunch? (incorporating Tuesday Lunches) (and Wednesday too I suppose)

lunching

I have a very lax attitude towards this but there presumably must be a cut off.

Personally lunching depends on when I start the day and justifications can be made when the calendar is hellish but anything after 11:20am is fair game imo.

Might start calling it a brunch break instead.

I have just had lunch

i’d be really sad if it was 11:30 and i’d already eaten my lunch. would probably think of a reason to go home early

Before 11.30

Used to do this

Lunch at 11:45
Go out and get a massive flapjack at Sainsbury’s at 1:30ish

Put on loads of weight SOMEHOW, although the actual reason i stopped was because the person at the cake counter knew exactly what I was gonna buy and would sometimes bag it up as I was walking up, which was just so embarrassing, so very very embarrassing

The sandwich man (that’s the company name, not me being patronising / sexist) comes to our work at around 10:30, so sometimes I have to sit with a nice juicy butty staring at me for the rest of the morning.

In such trying circumstances, any time from 11:30 is fair game.

But then there’s a snowball effect and I end up wanting my tea / dinner early and then eat snacks before bed.

As you can see, it’s a hard life sometimes.

Used to buy the packets of TTD cookies in Sainsbury’s and have one each day throughout the week. Only four in a pack so there was one sad day. Thank Christ I now work in middle of rural nowhere and Londis is a 30 min walk.

At work: 12pm, anything before that makes the afternoon too long, anything later I’m too hungry
At home: any time after 11am, anarchy reigns

Is this the daily lunch thread, please clarify?

#14

when I worked in an office, it would be around 12:30. no earlier. don’t get people who eat their lunch at like 10 in the morning.

#15

Have lunch at work at about 11:30. But I usually work 8am-4pm :man_shrugging:

#16

No this is a separate thread on lunch timings

#17

Well that’s pretty disappointing

#18

I had a sandwich and then some hotel chocolate easter eggs

#19

Very happy for this to be the lunch thread if there isn’t one already! Moderators may need to amend the thread title for clarity
