I love going out to buy lunch since it’s the perfect excuse to leave my seat. Wondering what to eat for lunch also takes my mind off the job I hate. Only problem was, lunch around my job is probably the most expensive in the country. I spend between $10-15 on lunch for food that can just hold me over for a few hours.
Fortunately for me, I have Karen to come up with cost cutting initiatives. Probably about a month and a half ago, I promised Karen that I would bring lunch to work three times a week. This would help me save quite a bit while still giving me the freedom of choosing two days a week to eat something else other than chicken; I always bring chicken.
There have been many occassions where I simply forget to bring food. No problem since I can use one of my two days. However, there were some weeks where I simply did not have the time to make lunch so there was nothing to bring. It’s a tough choice sometimes because you can only be one of two things: a man without integrity and breaks his promise to the person he loves or, a hungry man, maybe even a starving man, who does whatever it takes to keep his promise. This means I would have to skip lunch entirely, even if I skipped breakfast.
The way I see it is, there are millions of people starving everyday. This gives me a chance to live in their shoes, keep my promise AND save money. Three birds with one stone!
