    Don’t always take a morning break but when I do it is at 10. Lunch is usually between 12:30 and 1, if I know I am staying late (after 5) I will usually take another 10 minute break around 3.

    Lmao love the quick wits here.

    I usually work by myself, eat when ever is convenient on the job, basically depending what I’m doing. I find if I have to big a lunch, feel sluggish after.

    I rarely stop for breaks or for lunch . My old boss made us skip lunch all the time so it became a habit .

    I don’t usually take a lunch break because I want a nap afterwards.
    I do take quick smoke breaks often.

    Oh man I hear you about taking lunch a little bit later…I get so lazy after I eat, it takes a little time to get back in it. Especially if there’s a slacker on the team, it just drags after lunch so taking it later is normally what happens.

    I work with a small crew, 6 or 7 guys at most, often 2-3. We take coffee break around 9:30, and lunch 12:00-12:30. We seldom take an afternoon break, maybe sometimes if it’s extremely hot or cold, or if we’re waiting for paint to dry. Sometimes we’ll send the new guy to grab some egg sandwiches for coffee break.

    Depends. If were on my job wich is usualy just rental rehab , it depends on how I feel, and if my son(s) are working. Many days I will grab something I bring and eat in a few minutes, sometimes a 10 or 15 min power nap. If one or both sons (12 and 9) then a few more breaks and little longer lunch. But this also gives me chance to see what they are thinking, seeing what they think we should do next …just trying to get them to think ahead. If Iam on another persons site, their call. Usually don’t try to take lunch till I have to. Later it is, the easier the day seems to go

    We have lunch around 12:30, and sometimes a coffee break around 3:00.

    I eventually just settled down to having a half hour lunch somewhere between 12:30-1:30. I like a full lunch as it gave me a chance to run a quick errand or get caught up on phone calls, etc. without having to keep guys busy. There were times where I only had one guy with me that didn’t like taking lunch where we’d take 15 at lunch and I’d just pay 8.

    If it’s really hot/humid or really cold, or the work is particularly hard, like digging holes or demo, then I’ll put a 5-10 minute break in the morning and/or afternoon to help keep guys hydrated. I’ve had heat stroke a few times and that break really helps guys get rehydrated. If it’s cold or the work is rough, it just keeps them from being miserable all day.

    T.O. = Toronto. The traffic in, out, and around the downtown core is famously bad. Worse than L.A. from what people who have experienced both, say.

    Thats why i really want to move as I work in the core and transit is impossible. Everyday there is something slowing it down.

    Thanks, DWB – I got a laugh out of that reading it a couple of different ways and I’m still not sure which is right!
