    eating at work?

    Discussion started by GREENOJOS - Feb 21, 2005

    Do you guys go out to eat for lunch or do you bring your lunch with you? What about snacks to get you through the day?

    Personally, I go out to eat with some associates everyday and spend on average about $5-6 dollars per meal. One day out of the week we might go to a more expensive place, where it's like $10 bucks for a plate. As far as snacks go, I get about 2 dr.peppers throughout the day to get by and make work more enjoyable.

    So the question is this, do you believe it's worth the extra money to go out an eat and get those little snacks to make your work day more enjoyable or would you rather save the money for something else?

    I can't really decide, I would like to save the money, but on the other hand I got to have my fix.

    ps- i like going out to eat for lunch as opposed to bringing it because i'm lazy and i'd rather get something that's fast and hot, from a fast food place rather than bringing a sacked lunch from home.

    Eveything is relative. It all depends on how much you make and if the loot-to-happyness ratio is enough, spend the extra cash for food, if not don't. Also, if you are fat dont waste money to make you even fatter. And in response to your first question, I bring my lunch.

    for school work i make sandwiches to save money..

    i treat myself to a nice sushi lunch about once a week.. maybe twice if i'm having a bad day.

    i also have free coffee at school/work so that helps a lot.

    Sometimes the old lady will make food for me to bring, but most times I just order from the japanese place down the street. We're on a first name basis. As far as snacks, I'm on a dried fruit kick now.

    Beer at lunchtime is great, jack daniels is even better! makes you forget the day is dragging and before you know its its hometime! dont do red wine you'll end up falling asleep....... or if you want a ultra low calorie meal you could always take the white powder lunch ----------------------------------
