We have just been called into the office and told that, due to falling profits, the company will not be subsidising any Christmas lunches this year. "You can still take time off to have a Christmas lunch, but you'll have to pay for it yourself."
My manager's manager chimed in, "We'll still go out? The production department? I'll organise a date."
Look, if I have to pay for my own lunch, I'll choose the people I go with. And you won't be one of them, capice?
