I'll remember to post the sarcasm smiley next time I respond to one of Tom's posts. Just in case anyone is under the illusion I take anything he types seriously.
To be fair, NickatBasel didn`t post a joke Smiley either.

Re: Work lunch etiquette

The key with sarcasm is to keep it dead pan. Leave the readers to read between the lines and figure it out. A bit like reading a contract properly before you sign it.

Then you should be thankful that they don't insist on eating with you. The conversation would be miserable and effectively only an extension of work. I used to enjoy the opportunity to go for a walk at lunch time and then take lunch at a restaurant well away from my work colleagues, and read a newspaper.
Glad to find I am not the only one. My team and I sit in a tiny office and the noise has me on edge by noon, so I first go for a walk and then have some Thai at the local restaurant while reading my current book. Love it! My reason is the quality of canteen food- and frankly no one in their fair mind can argue with that
