Why should you get to expense a meal when you are at home?

like

If your company reimbursed you for home meals, it would be taxable as income. Hard to justify a meal at home as a “business expense”

like

It is accurate.

I can’t get over the fact that y’all get home meals... I just cook & eat the expensive. pun-intended.

funny

If you’re working till midnight every night, it’s impossible to take the time to cook and clean every night. Same reason you expensed meals when working late in the office

If my company worked me so hard that I couldn’t make a meal for myself, I’d quit so fast.

Didn’t love all of Bill Burr’s SNL skit, but the bit about white women is me during D&I initiatives that have pushed the hard talk about race and intersectionality aside for easy wins that elevate upper-class white women. Most of which already have most/many of the same privileges as white men, which have been formed at our expense. Glad to see our firm is starting to have these hard conversations, and am watching white women to see if they’re really allies or simply opportunity hoarding.

Need some vacation advice.

My wife and I have been doing the all-inclusive route for a while now and I think we’ve come to the conclusion that we need to just go to an expensive, pay as you go resort to get the food, service, and higher caliber of guests. Suggestions on such a place? Carribean preferred. Thanks.
