    Honolulu,, Hi.

    That was friggen hilarious!!!
    Today I had Turkey breast at Subway. As the girl was making it I looked over the counter to check the breast. I said is that breast? She laughed and said no, took it off and grabbed the beast meat.

    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!

    Oh you got it right…LOL.

    most of the time i pack a lunch, more often than not were within 5 minutes of a grocery store and our stores have a lunch counter so ill sometimes go there for something or ill grab a slice of pizza somewhere..

    as for breaks.. we dont take a official morning break if you want to stop for a drink of water go right ahead.. occasionally one of us will make a coffee run, as for who does what at lunch theres no say… our crew is kinda clique ish.. two of our guys always go somewhere together.. another 3 guys always take lunch together sometimes they have packed lunches other times they go somewhere… typically i tend to be the floater on the crew so im either laying out framing or installing trim solo.. i do my own thing or if im with the crew ill go for the drive

    heres a tip, dont fart in a space suit

    two of our guys always go somewhere together.

    You think they are having a beer or 2 with lunch?? I find it works that way.

    You don’t keep a cup of coffee in your pocket and drink it as you work?

    When I was working full time I’d take lunch after everyone else got back. I’d usually stay on site in case I had to pitch in somewhere.

    Now, I don’t eat a thing until my parrots decide they want to go to bed. If I try to have a meal when the parrots are up and about, I end up with bird beaks in my food. They like to share my meals – duh.

    Sometimes I do. But my Sun Conure will scream ear-piercing screams until I let him out. He’s spoiled, LOL.

    I’d rather them go listen to “Bob Marley” or “Snoop Dogg” rather than have a couple beers. I trust their work more after, if they do any…:)

    It would be hard to put in a days labor and not stop to eat something. You body must have something in it for energy.

    I am sitting in the truck right now eating a chicken salad sandwich, granola bar, and some almonds. I have found anymore if I don’t eat lunch I start to get grumpy by early afternoon. And I very rarely eat breakfast so by lunchtime I am starving.

    im not talking about “not eating” 😀 more likely not taking a break for 30-45mins to eat breakfast/lunch. i grabbed something to eat while working…
    even now when i work for my buddy, still do the same.

    Gee my union job wasn’t like that, Of course it all depends on what yer duties are but I always had a cup of coffee in my hand LOL. If I had to set it down it was never more than a few feet away, That was at least til noon and usually all day
