When you head out to your job in the morning do you have your lunch prepared the night before? Or do you go out to eat everyday? And when you start a new job some people don't like yo eat in the cafateria or break room on their first day at work. I ate in the lunch room at my job the first week I was there and I felt like people were staring at me. Have you ever ffelt like that? I was eating alone and I started this week to eat at my desk at lunch so no one would stare at me. What do you do?

right now, my company has food allowance to all the employees.if it doesn't,I would prefer having a packed lunch.fortunately,even if I am a new "kid" on the office,I seem to make friends quite easily.it will help you ease out and find a new friend if you relax and appear approachable.

That's cool to get a food allowance wish we had those here, I make friends easily too I just would rather not get too close to anyone at work. I am there to make money and go home. My last job I had a lot of friends and now that they have shut down I miss them everyday! I miss my old job as well. Those people at my other job were like family to me. I guess I just don't want to get too close because I don't know how long this new job for me will last.

i head back home for lunch at noon time. and my wife prepares food for all of us. sometimes, if there are no more foods in the fridge, i will buy something in the canteen near the office and bring it home. it's nice to eat together with my wife and kids.

In my 32 years of working I usually would eat at my desk. Bringing leftover food from dinner the night before. It saves alot of money. There were many times though I would go out to eat with the girls just to get away from the office or for special occasions.
