What do you usually do during lunch at work?

I started a new job a couple months back and I have to say my department is kind of weird (actual the whole company setup is weird but thats another story). At my old job I would always eat with the people in my department (I'm an accountant). At my new job it is nowhere near like that. My boss usually eats with other managers from other departments and people he used to work with at his old job. Another guy in my department goes out to eat with the person I replaced everyday (he talks maybe once a day). The two girls in my department usually don't eat lunch; they either go to the gym or shopping. And the last person in my department sits at his desk and eats (he's weird, he rarely talks everyday). So I have been finding myself going to the cafeteria at my old lunch time at 12:45. Most people in the company go to lunch between 11-12 because that is when the free food is put out (we get free lunch everyday). Between those times I am never hungry, plus I like having a shorter afternoon because I feel it always drags in the afternoon. People usually also eat at their desk (we have opens eating) even though we have a cafeteria in the building and access to the other one in another building. I usually eat for 10-15 mins and then go in my car and lay down if I stay here.

So what do you do during lunch? I think my new company's setup is weird.

when i was working at a university I went to lunch at 11:30 with other sysadmins.

ever since I got back into the "real world" (read: corporate america) it's every man for himself. I just go down to cafeteria and either eat by myself, or with dudes from the department i used to work at before I left this place (came back to this company 6 years later due to good pay/benefits/perks)

I don't have a routine. Today I grabbed lunch at Cosi and brought it back to the office. Everyone talks to each other throughout the day here so it's not like that is the only social outlet for us. Fridays I usually go out with a few friends from the office to a restaurant in the area. We have a gym and some people work out.

Mon-thurs I bring lunch so normally just talk to my coworkers or eat at desk. Fridays we normally all go out somewhere to eat

I drive home, let the dogs run in the yard, and watch TV while I eat.

I don't like the people I work with/for, so fuck em.

I work weird hours in order to support our clients on the west coast. (11am-8pm EST) I usually take my hour "lunch break" around 4 or 5. I go home to let the dogs out and smoke. We play some fetch in the yard, I rip a couple grav bongs, then the last 2-3 hours of work fly by.

I'm usually reading threads on e90post about "what do you do on your lunch" during my lunch.
