Work instituted these mandatory, inter-team lunches.

Something about teamwork and getting to know people outside your department, and giving the office a friendlier atmosphere, and especially, they said, to get us away from our desks. They used a lottery system. Every week, the office manager drew fives random names and told them they had a reservation at the shitty chain restaurant three blocks away.

“And make sure to have fun!” she always said in her email.

The company didn’t pay for the meal.

The whole thing was bullshit. The one guy who said as much was fired the next week.
