“Yes, break-ups suck, but have you ever left your to-go box on the table at a restaurant?”

Forgetting about taking a “to-go” box home from a restaurant can be sad, but it’s common. “#RetweetThis if you’ve ever eaten at a restaurant, asked for a to go box, and then accidentally left the box on the table” was posted on Twitter by Kelli Harrison on February 19, 2010. “Don’t you hate the moment you realize that you left your box of food on the table at the restaurant” was posted on Twitter by Ryan Simmons on August 30, 2011.

“RT @justbourgie: That disappointing moment when you realize you left your to-go box on the table at the restaurant 😔--the WORST UGH” was posted on Twitter by Kylia on December 30, 2011. “@lbparks: That awful moment when you realize you left your to-go box on the table at the restaurant… #mylife” was posted on Twitter by Taylor Ruden on February 21, 2012. “That terrible moment when you realize you left your to-go box on the table of the restaurant and are too far away to turn back” was posted on Twitter by Travis Seger on February 1, 2013.

“Yeah break ups suck but have you ever left your to-go box on the table of a restaurant??” was posted on Twitter by Rachielle on February 4, 2018. This has been the most popular form of the saying.

The “go-to” box saying has been printed on many images.

Hate when I get a “to go box” for my extra food only to discover an hour later I’ve left it sitting on the table at the restaurant. #fb
