    Pack up. Packed lunch.

    It's when you take food...from work with you. To eat.

    100% of the occupants of the Frijj household call it that which means that’s it’s true.

    @Spot calls it a pack up.

    Actually, this is embarrassing. I said this in 2014:

    I once got on a Megabus from Portsmouth to Sunderland that cost about a fiver. Would have been about £15 with National Express but took 6 hours less. I was absolutely destitute at the time mind.

    I also did once fly from Malaga to Gatwick via Olso to save £30. Added 7 hours onto the journey. I can say I've been to Norway though.

    Usually I spend spend spend though.

    That's what anyone with sense does. Save £50 a month no bother.

    It'll be his inner jock.

    Depends if you work next to an amazing sandwich shop or in a city centre though. Definitely something I’ve done in the past.

    Packed lunches aren’t what I was after though, I want to hear stories of people using tea bags 3 times, people taking the fuse out of the boiler before they go on a business trip so their wife needs to wear a coat indoors.

    They just sound like twats. Tea bags are dirt cheap and weak tea is pointless.

    My car turns the engine off itself at traffic lights and stuff. It seems pretty pointless, surely it doesn't save much fuel.

    Mine too,Maybe does save a bit ,turning it off on a hill renders the brake servo useless which my mate found out at the bottom.

    I never understand the obsession with rounds. People turn out & go home at different times and drink at different speeds. I just buy my own as its just more practical.

    Agree with you on eating out, some people go out and eat at shit restaurants that you could easily make something better than with a little bit of effort.

    Like you say the only ‘takeaway’ that cant be replicated for me is proper Fish and Chips with scraps, I dont use a fryer so thats the only thing i feel like im gettig value for money food wise.

    Dont get me wrong, I do like eating out but i never really feel its worth whatever we have paid unless you go somewhere outstanding and then you are paying through the roof anyway.

    Just get in a round with one or two people who drink at similar speeds. Going to the bar all the time must be a pain, there's nowt better than seeing your mate bring you a pint over while you finish off the previous one. :cool:

  20. I really couldn't be arsed with it. More cleaning to do in the house. If it's sandwiches they are always shit compared to fresh ones and if it's something to heat up then you need to wait ages for a microwave at work.
