    How do you prepare for tomorrow's lunch?

    1) Yesterday's leftovers is today's lunch.

    2) I always make my lunch with the stuff I like.

    3) I buy lunch on the road because I'm single and it's so convenient.

    4) I'm a "snacker" and eat small stuff through out the day.

    5) I don't eat lunch but have a huge breakfast.

    6) Lunch...what's that?

    If I were to fix lunch for work I would fix what I like and on occasion that might include leftovers. Nothin better than a leftover meatloaf sandwhich.

    I usually buy lunch.

    1)Depends on what and how much leftovers there are.

    2)If we had it for supper I usually like it.

    3)Sometimes I buy lunch on the road because I didn't have anything to pack or there wasn't enough time.

    4)Sometimes a few snacks is all it takes.

    5)I don't usually eat breakfast. Just coffee thanks.

    6)Sometimes, like today, I don't eat anything. Finally made it back to JEFIL and thought about going to that hot dog stand across the e-way but holy smokes they were packed. Ball game night.

    1) I always make my lunch in the morning and pack it in my cooler, generally a sandwich, apple, and one or two snack items.

    2) You could have made a poll.

    All of the above, depending on the day or the mood. Can't get away with the "because I'm single" part. change it to "because I can".

    to prepare lunch I make sure I have money in my wallet. Though the place I eat will run a tab for me and let me pay at the end of the week so i can just make one easy swipe with the debit card.

    I always take my lunch, I can't stand fast food plus there are no restaurants on my area. I usually eat a ham or pot roast beef sandwich and a candy bar. I will snack on carrot sticks and strawberry licorice during the day too. I carry three or four frozen quarts of Gatorade or Powerade to sip on all day also. I might spend $2.00-2.50 a day.

    I'm anxious to see how many different responses we get on this one. Probably not too many. You know alot of these drivers on here probably skip their lunch. I buy lunch every day but have been telling myself I'm going to start bringing i but have yet to actually do that.

    I make sure I have enough cash in my wallet to pay my tab at Taco Bell.

    not a driver, 22.3 inside.

    Apple, banana, yoguart drink, granola bar, 5 hour energy, sometimes a sandwich, bottle of water. I eat all of those everyday 7 days a week.

    I usually buy lunch if I dont bring sandwiches, a salad or chicken sandwich or something as healhty as you can find.

    Wise guy? There is nothing wise about skipping lunch. Or eating lunch while skipping lunch. :)

    The manager at the McDonald's on my route would never let me pay. Ha, I was eating there five days a week! Glad he transferred, I was starting to look like a feeder driver...:rolleyes:

    Always made my own lunch.. not always enough though. But, what I really liked is going to Safeway (grocery chain) now and then. For a hot soup.sandwiches or hot chicken... and grab some milk. Even a whole BBQ chicken at times (bring back the leftovers home)
    And I did my shopping there at the same time. (less thing to do on the weekend).

    i always shake down customers for free food. depends on the route im covering. if the regular driver does the same i can get stuffed without to much effort. if the regular driver has his wife pack him a lunch every day i have to work the customers alot more to get the grub...

    Two sandwiches (usually ham), apple or banana, and a bottled water, which I refill at certain stops during the day.

    I love my lunch.I try to get it all ready the night before.My fav is spaghetti from the night before.With my old p800,I'd slip the container in a ups express pouch and it would sit perfectly on my heater ready to eat .
    Turkey sandwiches are nice,or ham with keens mustard with a nice salad .
    I try to eat an apple a peach and an orange every day.
    Lunch is a sacred ritual that refreshes and rejuvinates in an otherwise hostile environment.Did I mention I love my lunch?

    I buy my lunch.
    First requirement is that it is not what I ate yesterday.
    Second requirement is that I lock the DIAD and my cell phone in the back of my package car.
    Third and final requirement is a newspaper.

    This is my time and I find it a diversion from the grind, both mentally and physically.

    I have it made. I live on my route, therefore I eat at home everyday. I watch my tv, use my toilet, check my email. Maybe even a nap. Of course, sometimes the little lady feels amorous, so it's a nooner.
