    I don't blame you. It's disgusting how some people treat our law enforcement officers.

    When you take me for my ride along I will buy us lunch.

    When I went to work pre covid I would go out and grab something and bring it back about 50% of the time 20% go out to lunch sit down with co workers 10% left overs from home and 20% stuff from my office fridge. Maybe a bagel with cream cheese or a batch of chicken salad I made and crackers etc.

    Grab a Publix sub or box of fried chicken was popular eat some fresh first day and the rest on the second day.

    Been work from home since early March. Make lunch / leftovers 80% and take out 20% to get out and some miles on my car.

    I take a Tamale made locally now that we are back in Texas living way out West.
    When I was roughnecking ms gamboolgal would make my lunch.
    Offshore in the Gulf of Mexico, we ate in the galley
    Living overseas the last 20 years - Offshore it was the galley. When I was working Onshore I did not eat lunch much at all - less maybe some Puppy Peters or Crackers or flat pack of Tuna we would bring over from the USA but that was rare for me.
    But I sure am liking these local made Tamales and hot sauces out here in far West Texas since we got back from Africa.

    I have almost never packed a lunch.

    Until I bought this house and plan to pay it off ASAP.

    Now if I am in town I bring a lunch.

    I take my own.

    Pharmacist lunch joke: if you take a hot lunch it gets cold. If you take a cold lunch it gets hot.

    If I've got a full day I usually pack lettuce wrap or a salad, I avoid try to leaving my jobsite for anything once I get to it.

    I don't have a wife to make lunch for me so I'm dying of starvation.

    For 50 cents a day, you can donate to the Christian Weapons Fund and feed starving space-age weapons like Gauss Rifle here. :crying:

    So therefore your wife packs your lunch for you?



    That might be a good reason to get married.

    Never packed or took a lunch to work in 50 years......always left the office at lunch when I could. Over a hundred flights a year and 90 nights in a hotel meant I would eat out every day. I could miss lunch or dinner but never breakfast.

    Is this a trick question? I almost always make my own lunch. But I do work from home so it probably doesn't matter.
