Life choices based on food?

I recently walked out of a job interview thinking to myself, "I hope I get this job because it's so close to [amazing restaurants & snack places] and I will never have a painfully sh**ty lunch again." (I currently work in a culinary wasteland.)

Then I thought to myself, "okay, that's a terrible reason to want to work somewhere, but it's also not inaccurate." It also wasn't the only reason, but it did kind of leap out of my mind.

Which got me thinking-- what sort of quasi-hilarious choices have you made because of your stomach?
