And what about people who use mass-transit to go to work? Without a personal car, their options for lunch are severely reduced (perhaps on the peninsula rather than in SF proper).
A 30-minute internal take-out now becomes a 90-minute excursion into the wilds of San Francisco.
First day on my new job and I eat my brown-bagged lunch at the cafeteria with the guys. Half way through, a user (I was a programmer) comes over and starts discussing the project I am doing for him. I tell him I'll get back to him after lunch and later got some crappola from my boss for "not working with people".
I drove a camper then, so at lunch time I just repaired there and ate in peace and silence. The rest of 'em thought I was anti-social.
[Distantly related]: A young guy I worked with came by one time, all agog that he was invited to a "Power Lunch" where they would discuss some outstanding problems. I told him that the company was "letting" him work through his lunch hour. Deer in headlights.
Funny thing is to this day I am still designing software on a system i (AS400) LOL life long career.
