So, I was on my lunch break at work one day and I was joined by the rest of the 12 o’clock lunch crew. We were all sitting in our usual spots . . . yes, we somehow managed to have assigned seats in the break room. And by we, I mean four women who are in their late twenties, mid thirties, late forties, and a fabulous fifty.
They might actually kill me for sharing their ages . . .
Anyhoo . . .
The point is, we are all #grownAF and yet, we have our assigned spot at the break room table and everyone in the building knows not to fork (a little lunchroom humor) with those seats. So much so, that when a new person comes in they know exactly where to go: that chair closest to the door.
Earlier in the week on that day I started my story off with, one of the guys in the office brought in his lunch. He’s been working in the building for about a year and not once has he eaten with us, but he finally came to his senses and realized how fun we are. So, he brought in his #lunch in his lunchbox (read: gallon sized zipper plastic bag) and he pulled out that chair closest to the door and he popped a squat.
We, of course, grilled him on his life and he answered all questions. Ten minutes in and he was one of us! We welcomed him into the 12 o’clock lunch crew with arms wide open.
The next day, he came in, but didn’t have his bag o’ food. I asked him if he was gonna eat with us and told him his seat was open!
The grin on his face was so big, I thought it was going to crack his face open. He said he couldn’t eat with us today because he had school work to do, but he was so happy we enjoyed his company the other day. He then asked where his nameplate was. We all looked at him with puzzled faces and he again asked where the nameplate for his chair was. He said if he was officially a part of the lunch crew, he needed a nameplate for his assigned seat.
Now we were the ones with grins beaming.
He gets us.
We don’t actually have nameplates on our chairs, but after his comment, I had a thought.
How great would it be to get some custom nameplates made to add into the gifts?
East Point Foundry would be the perfect place for me to get some custom nameplates made!

Now, what should my custom nameplate say?
How about Official 12 O’Clock Lunch Crew Member? Or Honorary Lunch Lady?
Yeah, that’ll do. That’ll do. Although this is more of a fun way to create a custom nameplate, on a serious note, a custom nameplate from East Point Foundry is the perfect gift for any business professional in your life as well because it can help them feel more confident while at work, in their office.
