A revitalising afternoon break from work, traditionally taken at four which comprises of a coffee (or alternative beverage, including but not limited to coconut water, frappuccinos and broccoli smoothies), sweetmeats or a chocolate mint ice cream.

Democratic in nature, foursies may be called by any member of a work party and if seconded may be taken at any time after 2:30pm.

The tradition began in the high pressured offices of Horseferry Road, London, and quickly spread to the rest of the capital as a practical means of improving worker retention, satisfaction and efficiency.

Michal: Did I hear someone say foursies?
