Work Through Lunch, You Pathetic Slave

“Work Through Lunch,” the pink billboard exhorts me, as I drive south on I-91. Then just below is a photo of a tiny pizza the company sells for ‘lunch.’ I glare at the sign and set to thinking.

No Way! Lunch is a relaxing bit of the day. Lunch is for meeting a friend, sitting for a while, enjoying a good meal and taking your mind off work. I saw this pink billboard and I thought, that’s JUST EXACTLY what we are not about.

Nobody works through lunch at the cafe. I hope to keep it that way.
