    Does anyone take a lunch box? I'm new and start tomorrow and don't want to bring something that really gets in the way, but eating fast food doesn't appeal to me at all especially when I'm hustling all day.

    Any thoughts?

    I bring a playmate with 4 quarts of water and a snack. I stop at a cafe or grocery store for lunch to eat and read the paper.

    First you need to start earning the big driver money. Money attracts women.

    Sometimes they are out for the money more than anything.

    I eat at a deli every day. Sit at the counter and talk with the staff while I eat my lunch. I prefer not to pack my lunch as it is away time from my truck.

    You can eat out everyday, bring your lunch or not eat it's up to you. I bring my lunch in a igloo cooler the only time I spend money out while working is when it hotter that hell and I need more to drink. Eating out can get expensive after a while $5 to $10 a day adds up and not eating isn't good for your health.

    The choice is up to you.

    Good luck

    take you time and don't get into a accident your learn as you go and things will start to get easier in time.

    What ever you do stay away from all the heavy foods. Summer time salads in a gallon zip lock with fruit and tons of water.winter time soup in the thermos with a salad to go along and some ritz to snack on. The guy I ate with beside my route would always gea footlong meatball sub and chips and a diet coke. Guess who was miserable everyday lol lol. Just suggestions.
