So there’s a new rule where I work, and it’s the one of the best examples I’ve ever seen of corporate thinking. I have now been informed that I have 45 minutes to eat my lunch. And that’s wonderful.
Then I was informed that if I punch back in, and start working before 30 minutes have passed, I will be verbally reprimanded, then written reprimands, then possibly terminated. Because I went back to work early.
So, in order to burn the last 15 minutes of my lunch, which I do not need, I am posting this nonsense onto the internet for all the world to see. And I wonder if I will be reprimanded for this as well.
Such is the way of the world in corporate America.
Anybody hiring out there that would like an employee who takes short lunches?
