I'm asking this because someone told me I should have taken my lunch today. Say you start at 9am and work till 1630 (7.5 straight hours), do you still take a lunch just to say you did or do you call it quits and get your guaranteed 8 hours anyway. Just a question of preferences. It seems pretty silly to work for 7.5 hours w/o a lunch and then take an hour unpaid to get the same thing and get home later. I mean i could understand if I were to work till 17:15 then take a lunch because that's 15 mins. of overtime. But if i'm getting the same guaranteed 8 should I even bother?
