HR is getting sticklerish about the rules, but then, that's part of their job. I'm sure everyone's aware that the reason they're so picky about lunch breaks and overtime and such is that they're trying to live up to the laws protecting workers. Personally, I find it kind of annoying that you can't skip lunch of your own accord, but them's the rules.
I think everyone here follows these rules pretty much anyway, and I don't plan to become Big Brother. Take your lunch time whenever you want, and try to adhere to the rules.
