    Default Pack or buy a lunch?

    So it's lunch time at school/work/whatever. Do you pack a lunch or buy a lunch?

    I usually pack a lunch and bring a dollar for a candy bar or something

    I think I may have voted incorrectly. I don't pack lunch as in at home but I buy soups and snacks in bulk and keep them in my draw. On a Friday I treat myself and have a wrap. The last time I brought in something I made at home was when I was doing that 'lose a stone in a week' diet. I would rather bend over and defecate into my own mouth than do that diet again.

    Half and half, I'll take a few bits from home and then buy a couple things out too.

    Bri almost always makes a sandwich for me to bring to work. Once in a while I'll buy something.

    All goblin rituals serve a dual purpose as fertility rites, even the destructive ones. Especially the destructive ones.

    If I have extra money I'll treat myself to something nice. However I usually either skip lunch or pack a quick snack.

    I always make a lot of food in the evening so I pack left overs usually. I do some meal prep for breakfast most the time too. I cook a bunch on Sunday and put it together for quick grabs in the morning cause i'm not a morning person.

    90% of the time just wait until I get home to eat. 9% of the time I'll get something, @ least a snack. 1% of the time I'll bring something, usually something I can keep in my locker.

    I stopped bringing lunch because the assholes @ work kept putting their lunch on top of my lunchbag in the fridge. The last time I brought mine, I got pissed they smashed my sandwich, so I slammed their bag down & broke something inside. #DGAF

    I'm at home, so it doesn't apply to me but like Bert, I pack his luch. I once stuck a small love note to his sandwich container. So that when he opened it, he'd read it and smile. He did.

    I almost never have time for lunch, there's too many doggies to make pretty! Though there's been a few times my boss buys lunch (usually pizza) and I'll take 5 minutes to cram a couple slices down my throat.

    I usually buy on my way to work. I really need to start packing my own though since it would be cheaper by a hellofalot.

    The canteen in my office is extortionate - also a roll is one price one day and then another price the next day depending on how the people behind the till feel that day. So, I take my own lunch in erry day.

    Almost always buy, either at work or on my way to work, or i go to a nearby shop if the canteen is too expensive.

    I really don't like bread that has been in a box for hours before eating it. I didn't when I went to school as a kid either.

    Usually pack.

    Sometimes Subway or the local kebab house may tempt me, but mostly I have a packed lunch.
