My coworkers and I just returned from a road trip this week. We traveled to Baton Rouge to attend a three-day training. We always enjoy traveling together. It gives us a chance to share work ideas and catch up with each other’s family. One thing we all have in common is we like to snack on these long trips. Any time we stop for gas or a bathroom break, we meet each other at the checkout counter with our munchies.
