    Coffee or Drink Break

    I know we have a 'coffee house' thread but this is a different one. This thread is what you eat around regular Company coffee breaks where you work or have worked.

    My last workplace had coffee breaks at 10:00 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. and I always ate something along with a half cup of coffee.

    Now that I'm retired I still try to have something around those times.

    Right now it's slightly after 10:00 and I'm going to have a banana.

    What are you having with your coffee or drink break?

    who’s getting the better of the deal.

    Re: Coffee or Drink Break

    Coffee? What else? Sometimes even during lunch breaks I would have a cup of coffee only.

    Even worse, because of cutlery thieves in the office, I sometimes would use my coffee spoon as a fork, since there were no forks available.

    Re: Coffee or Drink Break

    I mentioned my happy face mug yesterday. I was given two of them as a gift, one with a man's face and one with a woman's, the latter I still have. I kept the man's face mug in a drawer in the lunch room and someone stole it. Cutlery was stolen, too. I did bring my woman happy face mug and spoon to work but I kept it in my locker since the theft.

    My banana is still waiting...

    Oh my goodness, my husband bought me some avocados for a treat today. FINALLY a half decent price, not the exorbitant price they usually are now. I enjoyed it so much with just a little salt! MmmMmmM!

    Those things are hopelessly overpriced.

    Bloody middlemen! Farmers here don't even bother to get the onions off the land, as they fetch less than 10 cents / kilo (US 5 cents for a pound), but in the shops you pay forty times that!

    Rianad, we should have an 'Avocado Eating Party'...when they come on sale again!

    Any other avocado lovers out there? You can join our party.

    I've got four more left! I've missed them so much due to the high price that I was actually thinking of having one for breakfast.

    Re: Coffee or Drink Break

    I can't believe it! We went on Friday and my husband bought some avocados at an okay price, 5 to a bag. My husband went to buy more as I've been really enjoying the ones I have already, and they were DOUBLE in price in just a day! Anyway, not being a man who takes that lightly, he let the manager know what he thought of THAT!

    Thanks, Vautrin. What explanation could there be for doubling the price?

    To convince people there are some yummy goodies out there. Once they are hooked by the first one, they'll come back for more.

    I bet once the manager saw me salivating by the avocados, he was at- the-ready with his pricing gun!

    You're right, Rianad! I'm going to take teeny-weeny bites from the three I have left.

    --------------------

    On another note, can they be frozen? If so, I would buy lots the next time they are at a better price.....if there is a next time.

    Re: Coffee or Drink Break

    I don't have a proper coffee break. I have a good friend I am having the first coffee of the day - usually, right after breakfast. If I am not having breakfast - rarely - I have an apple.

    the proper coffee break is around 3 or 4. no snacks, but I generally am hungry, so if I usually have an orange or carrots - if I remember bringing them.
