I hate group lunches. Even just eating with a small group of people is an ordeal for me. It isn't like social events over dinner where it's more tolerable and sometimes actually fun
I prefer Lunch to be taken with as few people as possible. I feel no desire to socialize during lunch time. Maybe it's the higher temperature or something to do with the sun still shining.
Lunch is for business and work-related stuff otherwise it shouldn't be forced on someone to eat this meal in a group.
Just got off a 24 hr duty and I'm in no mood for this "social" lunch!
