My boss's daughter started working in the office for the summer today. I was told to take her around downtown and show her the places that our office orders lunch from (incase she ever needs to do a lunch run). While out, we pick up lunch for two employees, the bosses daughter, and myself. The daughter didn't realize that we pay for our own food, so I ended up paying for her lunch (The cashier was waiting on the money and staring at us.. I didn't want to say anything to make her look bad since she didn't bring money with her). She hasnt said anything about paying me back. Should I say something or just let it ago? I have the money for it and don't mind paying since this is her first day. But I don't want her to feel like someone should pay for her food all the time.

I think I would say "Hey, I just want you to know that we have to cover our own lunches. I'm happy to treat since today's your first day though. Welcome aboard." Something like that...

Thats kinda awkward.. but I guess Im the type of person that would've asked before ordering if we have to cover our own or if the office pays (which in a way seems like a dumb question, why would the office pay?!) But it is the bosses daughter, so maybe she thought the office would for some reason.. but she could've at least said, thanks for covering me, I'll pay you back... or I'll get yours next time... but since she DIDNT.. I would probably let it go this time or jokingly say, here's my welcoming gift?!
