Lunch allowable

Lunch allowable

Didn't find your answer?

Would the cost of providing a buffet lunch for the weekly directors’ meeting be an allowable expense?

I'd ask the shareholders. There will be an 'executive washroom' next...

The importance of the apostrophe: directors', not director's.

But "There's no such thing as a free lunch"

Actually, that's not true. A pub refunded my payment after I had to wait 59 minutes out of my lunch hour for my meal to arrive. (I was even allowed to keep the change... a 2p profit.)

If course it meant the lunch had to be gone in sixty seconds. I'm aware of a film of that name. Never seen it though - I'd guess it's boring as hell, as I assume it's about free lunches in similar circumstances.

Rubbish. It's about speed eating competitions.

Either way, people stuffing food into their mouths against the clock doesn't sound like something that should be the basis for an entire film. As a momentary distraction, as in Cool Hand Luke, it's fine.

If you want an eating film there is always "Super Size Me" or of course "Mr Creosote" from Monty Python.

I don't.

I must learn to express myself more clearly if even that wasn't obvious. (I might have to re-reinterpret your one-a-day rule (closer to how I originally did). One of the advantages of saying less is that you can make sure you say it more clearly. Something that is important in a technical discussion. For example, did you have a serious point behind your "free lunch" quote, or were you merely inviting this diversion into nonsense?)

I was more pondering possible BIKs re the free meals to the directors, if there are such; do they not need considered? (Because if not once our office is back and functioning we could have a board meeting every day)

I thought it was about most people's monthly salary.

I thought it was about the response time of children(including, and especially, visiting 20 odd year olds) when it is suggested they actually do some work around the house.

So you could go to a drive-thru?

There's hunger and there's despair.

I look at the queues at Malcolm MacDonald's by the racecourse and I wonder to myself, how is this "fast food" ?

Because you can wolf it down in 60 seconds once it's finally handed to you?

Wait... that's where we came in. (Must be time for me to go out.)

My wife took one of them literally, Telford Road, Edinburgh, she acquired a large dent in the driver's door as she failed to avoid some metal pole that obviously rushed towards her in a careless manner.
