No Shame in the “Sad Desk Lunch”

“Long live the no-hour-for-lunch-revolution,” wrote the person behind the Sad Desk Lunch tumblr to me in an e-mail. The blog has great photos of what people are eating at their desk for lunch from around the world (you can submit your own photos here). I don’t really agree — take your lunch hour — you deserve a break in your work day! But I also understand what it’s like to work on deadline and that sometimes you don’t have time to take a leisurely lunch, so you have to eat-work at your desk. Yes, everyone at our company does it too — except Edith. Edith never eats at her desk.
