Precisely. I haven't even left the office at 5 (let alone got home). I don't know anyone who eats before 6:30.

It's not a societal value judgement, just a pretty observable phenomenon to people who travel a lot.

Get over it.
Yes, we get it. Montreal is the ne plus ultra of European living and snazziness where people eat past their bedtime etc... In stuffy Toronto, people go to restaurants while they're still at work...
