What is the origin of the idiom "out to lunch" and when to use it?

The origin of the idiom "out to lunch" is rooted in the concept of taking a break from work to have a meal. However, it has evolved to figuratively mean being absent-minded, disconnected, or not fully engaged in a situation.

This idiom is typically employed when someone is being perceived as lacking focus, coherence, or understanding in a given context, often in a light-hearted or humorous manner.
