No matter how busy I am, I refuse to ever eat lunch at my desk just because the project manager is pushing to hit a deadline.
No, just no.
This is the start of the slippery slope to losing all semblance of good work-life balance.
I’ve done it when I was younger and I have to admit, I was incredibly naïve and stupid.
Any project manager who is going to chastise me for not being a team player because I insisted on taking my lunch break is not a project manager I want to work for.
Never live in fear of losing your job.
Make everyone else live in fear that you will quit your job.
And if they don’t live in fear of you quitting…
You’re in the wrong job and you aren’t trying hard enough.
