It sounds like you deserve it. Charge it as OT meal.

Yes, 100%, it's firm policy that you get to expense lunch if you're working 4+ hours and dinner as well if you're doing 8+ hours on a weekend.

^ is this for real?

I'd like to reiterate that this only applies on a WEEKEND, in case you guys missed it haha

8+ hours you can expense cabs and meal if local

P2, same applies 10+ hours on weekdays

Can someone post a link to this policy ?

Now only question is...if you bill 8 but more 12?

I almost want to say this is project based and discretion of your engagement director/manager. As always, use your best judgment.

When you make an offer on home what all cost you ask the seller. I am asking 3% closing, deep cleaning, 1 yr warranty on appliances. The closing in MD runs into 12-15k which is major expense so does asking seller to pay is normal practice. How long a builder installed carpet and appliances generally last assuming normal wear and tear. In 10-15 yr old house i believe most of these needs a new replacement
