chronicwhimsy:  How come you don’t go out for lunch, or at least as far away from him as possible? haha

And I wouldn’t worry about it setting a standard – sometimes I work straight through lunch, sometimes I take a full hour, but most days I take 30mins max. I don’t get bonus points above those who take their full hour’s allowance 🙂 Also it’s his choice not to claim back – if you work extra hours and are allowed to claim back then I would so do it!
