Wow thank you for all of your amazing suggestions - the Internet is a truly wonderful place in times of trouble. I know a lot of people will be worried about me so I thought I'd let you know I have now eaten my lunch successfully! I used the genius suggestion of using the dip pot lid, the crisps were too sadly too small to be much use although I did use them to shovel in the smaller remnants towards the end.
@marksandspencer why don't you put forks in the packets?!? Clearly this is a national crisis 😉
When you get on the train feeling smug with your delicious lunch selection and you realise you forgot to pick up a fork!! What would you do?
A, Wait until you get off the train, find a fork and eat it like a lady.
B, Use crisps as makeshift shovels.
C, Eat it with your face like a disgusting beast.
