So you go out to lunch from the office. Is it ok to have a beer with your lunch?
4 sure. so long as your nut a wus.
What if you drive while you're intoxicated and then get in an accident and then won't be able to go to work?? Oh noes.
I see no problem with it, but employers in north america are fvcked when it comes to that sort of thing
I've noticed that all my coworkers never drink during lunch. We drink after work often though. I've never ordered one at lunch just because no-one else did.
I used to. But not any more in case my boss smelled anything...hoppy.
And if you are Sonz70...I would highly recommended it.
I have nothing to do with him, and I feel sorry for anyone who does. (Qosis)
"Okay" and "should I" are two different things; you can drink if you'd like and your employer could do little to stop/punish you, but I'd consider it highly unprofessional to do so, which could have repercussions down the line.
Really wrong, no, better not to, yes.
If its just a single beer to wash down the meal than sure but more than that even if you have a tolerence is not a good idea.
When I was 18 I had a job detailing cars at a dealership and our boss would take us to a pizza place next door for lunch once a week and we would have a few,the waitress didn't even card us because he tipped so well
if you're not a complete pansy, one beer for an hour lunch isn't going to have a huge effect. it'll probably wear off before you resume work. then again, maybe it's just who you work for. i used to have a beer at lunch with my former boss all the time, it made lunch a little more chill, and the effect was gone by the time we got back to work.
I've had as much as 2 at lunch. I usually have one when eating mexican food (its a rule). My friend only lives 1 block from work so no worries about getting in an accident or a dui. Never would I order one at lunch with the boss.
its k aslong as u dont get drunk, so yes.
No, it's not. On the job and drinking is a very bad idea. Never would I even consider ordering a beer out to lunch with other employees, even if others ordered something alcoholic.
Oh, and if you go out to lunch with the boss, they are entitled to order alcohol. It is a setup. Never order something alcoholic when out with the boss. Iced tea works wonders. Yeah I know, I've wanted to make it a "Long Island" or "Tokyo" at times, but it's not worth it.
Of course it is. Beer during lunch is taboo here in NA, in Europe beer is like mineral water. I was soo shocked at the fact that they would not serve me and my friends a pitcher of beer at lunchtime...single bottles only, pitchers only after 3...wtf. Just make sure it does not cause any problems at your work etc...tons of retards and rats might be just waiting to gossip about how you "drink" at lunchtime...
At a job i had it stated in the personel manual that you could have up to two alcoholic beverages at a lunch, if it was business related.
Depends on the lunch. I've had one thus far in my work experience and I nursed it for an hour or so. I realize, though, that one beer can get me pretty buzzed even though I'm a big guy, so I'd rather nurse it and not finish the whole thing than finish it and act buzzed once I got back.
As a general rule I would not unless it was a long lunch and a client ordered first.
You and you boss reaching that stage in your relationship?
Seriously though, most employers would be more accepting of you doing another employee's wife/husband at lunch then having a drink.
I vote no, especially if you work in an office or retail. Just the risk of someone smelling it when you return could trigger some bad things (even if you are not drunk).
what kind of a question is that....of course its ok to drink a cold one on your lunch break. thats your time...you're not on the commpany's payroll for that 30-45 min...do whatever the hell you want.
No. Not if you value your job.
I would agree. If it is a crappy job you don;t care about and/or have little chance to move up then ok. But if it is not, wait for later to play it safe.
usa - no
europe - have 3
