lunch shooter
 n.— «Lunch shooters are among the many jobs that have disappeared from the Anheuser-Busch brewery in St. Louis. If they chose, beer bottlers at the Bevo plant could order lunch from a fellow worker who walked around the warehouse or the various canning and bot tling floors. Shooting lunch was one of the plum jobs, but I did have drawbacks. The lunch shooter had to make sure he or she got the order straight.» —“Shooting Lunch” Media Mayhem (St. Louis, Mo.) Apr.25, 2004.
