You look at your watch: lunch time. You go through the routine: pack up your tools, secure the work area, wash up and hop in the truck. You make your way to the local choke-and-puke and find yourself in a long lunch-time line, staring up at the never-changing menu, wondering if you really want a burger for the 4th day in a row...
Eventually you get to the counter and place your order. Then you move aside and let the next zombie step forward. You wait so long that you actually forget what you ordered, but it doesn’t matter - it won’t be what you paid for anyway. At least your drink will be what you wanted because you have to fix that yourself. You look at your watch: half of your lunch hour is gone already...
You finally get your food and go searching for a place to sit. Fortunately, you find the last vacant table available in the back; unfortunately, it’s between 3 screaming kids and some guy shouting into his cell phone. You slide into the seat and open your bag. You shake your head as you find your burger is almost the way you ordered it, but you’re pleasantly surprised to find they put 2 orders of fries in your bag - it’s your lucky day! Of course, they’re already cold…
You speed-eat your gruel, washing it down with your nearly flat cola. You look at your watch: just enough time to hit the john before you drive back to the worksite. Remember the 3 screaming kids? They pile into the restroom right before you. You wait. You wait. You look at your watch: got to go. By the time you’ve fought the lunch-time traffic back to your worksite, you’re 5 minutes late. And your boss is there. Waiting…
For the working man and woman, the only thing more sad than the above scenario is the fact that it plays out day after day after day. Albert Einstein defined insanity as doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. Does this sound familiar?
There’s got to be a better way - and there is! Inside this book you’ll find out how to eat better, eat cheaper and have a little extra time to relax during your mid-day break no matter where you may find yourself working. Become a Dashboard Gourmet and start enjoying your lunch hour!
