Default Packed lunch

Who takes a packed lunch to work? If so do you have the same thing most days?

I do take my lunch - always the same thing.

Default Re: Packed lunch

I've made one every day for Mr Lanark for almost 9 years now, it depends what plan he's on, if he's low carbing then it's chicken/meat salad, if not then I try to make healthier options with pasta/rice salads and the very very odd sandwich for variety, he takes 1 strawberry activia and a piece of fruit,keeps him out of the office tuck shop

Too much organisation required, I can't be fagged with the logistics. But was getting severely hacked off with only Costa every day at work, now the terminal is open much better choice :-)

I take sarnies for the first few days, well Portugese Rolls actually....but they get stale if you buy too many so normally Tuesday /Wednesday I'll get left over dinners and Thursday is 'do what the **** I want day' = German Donner Kebab.

I swear I'm a 50yr old in a 25yr old's body...

I buy a fresh baguette everyday to make mine.

I'm impressed by those wives that make hubbies sandwiches. I have never had mine made for me.

Every morning or the night before? Seems a faff to me.

Mrs Millhouse used to crush a colleagues mini chedders or crisps to dust every day when we went away from his desk. He was convinced that a guy on the other side of the office was doing it and it nearly came to blows. She never got caught.
That's awesome.

I worked with a guy who claimed he couldn't tolerate caffeine. I ordered us coffees, got his with an extra shot....felt a bit guilty when he was stood next to the water cooler drinking pint after pint talking to himself and shaking.

Pretty funny.

I walk to the shops to buy it the night before. Failing that Mrs Millhouse gets it if she goes to the shop.

I don't mind, quite like the walk/ bike ride.

Fair enough. I can walk to a Spinneys but it involves a long straight corridor / walkway in the 'mall' under the towers and it's basically a playground for scumbag screaming kids on scooters/roller skates/bikes etc.

I've only knocked one over but I'd rather go hungry than deal with that shit.

Any packed lunch I ever make rarely lasts past 9.45am.

When I used to commute from Sussex to East London M23, M25, A13 most of it was usually scoffed before I reached Clackett Lane Services
