My day job is a Network Admin.
Tomorrow the North America regional Director is showing up to supervise my review. And we will be doing lunch. The company/location I work for is too cheap to give me an expense account, so anything I spend is out of my own pocket.

Would it be wrong to take him to Burger King?

Nope--but McDonalds would be cheaper--the dollar menu and all...

Even better than the BK idea....

Take him to an expensive resturant... order a very expensive plate..


Then cut out half way into the meal.



Oh, you wanna keep your job?



Probably not a good idea.. on both accounts.

Maybe he will get the hint that I need a raise. Well there is always taco bell too...
Link Posted: 12/15/2005 9:00:49 AM EDT
Shouldn't he be buying your lunch?
Link Posted: 12/15/2005 9:00:51 AM EDT
Did he say he is expecting lunch?
Link Posted: 12/15/2005 9:01:00 AM EDT
Burger King sure tastes good, but it's not gonna impress anyone. I love BK's spicy chicken.

A $50.00 lunch out of your pocket, could return more K's on your yearly income.

LOL actually the last few time I have met with him he has payed (expensive resturant, very expensive plates).. The Director is cool, and we get along and joke each other very well. Its just the management at the location I'm at sux!

Take him to Hardees, after he has to run to the bathroom and total out the toilet maybe he will get the message.

Maybe he'll think you're already getting paid all you're worth. Why should you get a raise? It will only drive up the cost of your company's product. They'll pass it on to the consumer. The consumer's cost of living goes up. Inflation will spiral out of control. Your company will out source your job and lay you off to improve profits for the share holders. You'll end up working at BK. You should be happy with what your company is paying you and not ask for more.

Or...

You could unionize and get pay raises without needing to prove anything!

Why is he not buying your lunch? That's the way it usually works in the business world.
Link Posted: 12/15/2005 9:15:34 AM EDT
Go someplace nice.
When the check comes, tell him you'll get it next time.

Take him somewhere at least semi-nice you cheap fuck.

Give him a cup of hot water and a packet of ketchup swiped from MacDonald's and tell him he's having tomato soup.
Link Posted: 12/15/2005 9:28:27 AM EDT
If he's a good guy and the subject of lunch comes up tell him, "Lunch? Sure! If I'm buying, it's going to be BK. If you're buying, there a Ruth's Kris Steak house down the street."

A girl I used to date had a real cheap company.

She used to eat cans of tuna at work because she was on a diet.

I suggested that she tape the labels from cans of Little Friskies cat food onto the tuna cans to see what people would do.

"Well, I guess we can go to lunch now"

grab a brown paper bag, walk outside, sit on the curb and eat some peanut butter and saltine cracker sandwiches

"What, you didn't bring yours too?"

Finally, somebody whose palate is at the same socioeconomic level as mine!

Might I humbly suggest brown bagged "yours" and "his" potted meat sandwiches (that is, one sandwich cut diagonally: you each get half) and a jug of "Dr. Thunder" cola? You could also swipe some of those little salt packets from somewhere to add some zest to the meal.

+1 he should buy.
Link Posted: 12/15/2005 9:45:01 AM EDT
Take him somewhere semi-reasonable.
If you end up with the bill, ask your manager if you can submit an expense report.
If he says no, keep the receipt for your taxes - un-reimbursed work expenses. That way, you will get at least 30% of it back.
Link Posted: 12/15/2005 9:49:37 AM EDT
Remember it is better to give then receive

I say nice chain sit down place, like Lone Star Steakhouse, or Bob Evans, someplace like that, that's not too expensive but not too cheap.

+1 to he should buy for you though.

You cant have any classIII items, not sure about AWB style laws though.
Link Posted: 12/16/2005 2:31:07 PM EDT
So, submit an expense report for it. Only a few jobs have "expense accounts". But you can still submit expense claims.
