Is it acceptable to have ONE beer during lunch?

I am wondering what people think of this subject. You go out to lunch with people from work, you go to a place that serves beer/liquor. Is it acceptable to have one drink? i'm not talking having 5 beers in a hour. Just one with your meal? vote and discuss.

Having a beer can be used against you. Not having a beer can not be held against you.

Always pick the safer route when it comes to work.

On a normal day. No. Funny you bring this up because I work with someone who makes a point to have a beer at lunch just to show his "coolness". Pretttty entertaining. lol

But if you are at an event like a business golf outting, or some other social "off site" meeting, then yea.

I think 1 is okay, since it'll be out of your system in like an hour, which is normally like a half hour after coming back from lunch. I don't drink beer, so I don't have this problem, but I'd think it'd be ok.

It's all the legal BS that makes it have to be a no.


A beer with lunch should be ok. But it's not.

i dont think its a problem if your job involves sitting at a desk and working over the phone. If you work with machinery, drive, or work face to face with clients and they aren't there drinking with you then its a definite negative. I don't do it everyday but usually once a week or so some co workers and i will have lunch at a place that serves 1.75 u call its all day long and 5 dollar pizzas. so basically for like 11 bucks you get 2 bears and really good pizza.

Legally no, not acceptable.

Do I do it? Occasionally I'll have a few bloody mary's, one beer just makes it hurt, a few bloody's makes it more fun but harder to sit through the rest of the day at a desk.

I used to work at a pizza joint long ago. a dude that worked with some type of machinery came in a couple times a week. he would drink a whole pitcher of beer in about 40mins on his luch break. and sometimes if he finished the pitcher early he would order a single mug to finish up his break. I think he only got away with it because he worked second shift.(less employees). always amazed me. I say one is ok if u are a desk jockey.

There is the old boss trick of seeing if an employee will cross a line, even if others are doing it too... just to see where they 'stand'.

Again, I circle back to not having one can not be used against you or even twisted in a perverted way to be a negative against you.

If you have a office job and your boss orders one it is okay. If you are in any area where you can get hurt I say no.
I remember the good old days when I was doing engineering, my boss would take us out to the local pub for lunch. Get a big old burger and have a pint or two or three of Weiss. Wouldn't do it at my new job that requires me to go in the warehouse. All it takes is one trip over a skid or someone hitting me with a forklift and a trip to the hospital = lost job. Not worth it to me, I rather have several beers when I am off work instead.

I voted yes but it all depends on what your job is. so in some cases id say no. but people do it all the time around here. i usually dont (1 or 2 is a tease) unless its gonna turn into one of those "we dont go back to work cuz we're too drunk" lunches with the boss.

IMO it's fine. I had a beer with lunch during the first week of my current gig and my coworker thought I was nuts. I don't usually have one at lunch but once in a while I do.

I drink to get drunk ...so no.

Like many already stated though, it depends on the job and the day. I think it's completely acceptable for brain surgeons to down a couple at lunch for instance.
