So much of everyday life is built around routine. Due to nature of the the 9 - 5 job, a lot of this can’t be helped. I always think it’s important to inject a certain level of randomness into an otherwise laid out day. You may be required to wear a uniform in work but your employer cannot dictate who you go to lunch with. Well, I suppose your employer could change your lunch to an earlier or later time which would prevent you from going on lunch with someone but let's pretend your employer has more important things to do. If your employer deliberately changes your lunch time so you cannot go on lunch with a certain someone, they cannot stop you eating what you want during lunch. Well, I suppose they could close the canteen as soon as your lunch starts which would prevent you from choosing what to eat during lunch but what happens if you had a crystal ball and you knew the canteen was about to be closed as soon as you were to go on lunch. You could arrange to bring a sandwich to work that day. If your employer arranges for someone to knock your teeth out just as you are about to eat your sandwich, you can choose to realise that your employer just doesn't like you. If this is the case, you should consider writing a sitcom about your employer because it would be a very funny script.
