1. How long of a lunch do you get at work? Do you also get alloted breaks?

2. What type of toothpaste do you use? Do you only buy that kind?

3. Do you make your bed everyday? Does your kids?

I've always had a flexible job...well take that back, since I quit my non flexible job a few weeks before my oldest was born (almost 18 years ago, yikes!), I have had a flexible job since then.

If you don't like the answer you get, perhaps you should change the questions?

That would be true if time mangagment was the topic of conversation, it wasn't...the topic of the quesion was a job that dictates a lunch schedule for it's employees.  Some employer do not dictate that schedule and some do.

I just love how the people who claim they have to work weekends because they are so busy now gi to lunch with others with their work. Bawahhhaaa..

What's so funny about that?  Everyone has to eat and everyone still needs to get work done.  It only makes sense for us to stay together and do both.  It's not something that's changed...we have always done this.  The only thing different is that now you know about it.

Since you aren't a grad student nor are you a teacher, what basis are you using for judgement here?  I mean other than simply trying to be insult someone, aka being mean.

Actually that's fairly common with a flexible schedule, ime...it goes both ways.  Many employers allow their employees to have a flexible schedule because of the need to work outside of typical 9-5, M-F work hours.  It's called a perk or benefit.

What's horrible is when you have an employer that not only dictates lunch and work hours, but also require mandatory overtime, if one doesn't want to work overtime that is.

Positing a problem absent evidence of a problem says more about the accuser than the people she's trying to smear with her nasty brush.

i don't have friends of any age who are "constantly" taking selfies, as far as I know.  That is, if they are, they are not sharing via social media that we share.
