Working in a real physical office, with real physical humans has many terrible aspects. I mean, this premise is the entire concept of The Office.
However, one of the things I do miss is going out for lunch. I miss the excuse to spend money on good food, I miss the escape from everything else and I miss the face-to-face interaction. As a freelance web-work with a good chunk of my clients in other timezones; client lunch meetings are few and far between and leaving my desk in the middle of a busy day to take myself out for lunch seems like a chore.
I’d like to propose some kind of a regular freelancer/web-worker lunch situation. I’m not too sure how to get the ball rolling exactly. When I’ve mentioned this to local freelancers in the I’ve been met with disinterest. So maybe it’s a bad idea or maybe I just failed my charisma check that day. I can’t possibly be the only person in this boat, can I?
In any case, if you’re in the Winnipeg area and you like the sound of this idea, hit me up on twitter or leave a comment on this post.
