Whether you’re out frantically running errands or rushing to get home from work and hunger strikes, beware.

That being said, if you’ve also got a hungry family waiting for you at home who are also waiting for dinner (and it’s your job to bring it to them), the speed at which you get your hands on some food becomes super important.
