I know it's a bit late, but next time, it always helps to have a few ramen noodles lying around for emergencies. They're cheap, and will temporarily stave away the hunger. Not being too harsh to you since it wasn't your fault, but the saying goes, "if you fail to prepare, prepare to fail." Being prepared can go a long way.

Well OP, I know it might be hard, but try asking a coworker/friend to pay for lunch and offer to pay them back. I know people are going to chew out the boss, but honestly everyone makes mistakes-including bosses. Hopefully she was remorseful and apologized.

I'd ask the boss to pay... yeah, mistakes happen but it was boss's mistake that prevented OP from eating, buying OP lunch would be a very simple way to fix that mistake

ask the boss for money for lunch and an extended lunch since you spent your entire lunch calling the bank only to find out that your pay check hadn't been deposited yet.

That's a bit extreme , mishaps happen sometimes OP needs to ask a coworker or the boss for some money to get lunch and pay back once paid obviously awkward but can't be helped

Aww... sorry, OP. I know it's too late, and it won't matter to you- but I would have totally took you out to eat, maybe watch a movie or something! Lol I always try to help someone in a bind and pay it forward, y'know? Never know when you'll need a bit of kindness thrown your way! Hope your day got better though!

I mean that's nice and all but doing nice things to people so that they would be nice to you in the future would be more accurately paying it backward (or just making people owe you favors). Paying it forward is when someone does something nice for you and then you go do something nice for someone else.

We need more understanding people in the world. Paying it forward means you do something nice for them and they continue that trend. I don't think she was saying that the person she is doing something nice for is expected to return the favor to her.

Frankly, my dear, we all give a damn. Unfortunately, your lunch is gone with the wind.

If your boss is at least a bit reasonable, you could ask him/her to front you some money for lunch because it was their fault you're in trouble now...

Even if OP did ask the boss for today's lunch, the entire break was already wasted on the call to the bank. awkward to ask for so many favors. "Since you f'd up could you loan me some money for food until that check clears? Oh, and I need you to find a way to cover an entire 2nd lunch break today. Thanks." for sure FYL. If he/she is anything like my past managers they likely won't give a fuck.
