  • One of my favourite things in the world is that if I have to do time-accounting, I make sure there's a proper entry, with the appropriate 6 minutes increments, for "time-accounting"... billed to accounting :)
    • Yeah, precisely! If everyone did this, particularly in heavily micromanaged environments like scrottie’s where the productive people are constantly getting reassigned, management would hopefully soon realise what a folly it is.

      Assuming they still have their wits about them, anyway.

    • I've always done this, at least in the single job where I had to track my time to this degree of detail. "It cost $10 for me to fill out this form."

    • They won't enable us to do that, but I've tried. Some days I've spent up to a couple of hours wasting time putting together all the various required status reports and time accountings. I need to get faster at it, apparently.

      • They won’t let you do that? Sounds like management putting their hands over their ears and going “la la la the time consumed by all this accounting will not affect productivity la la la.” So where do you bill those wasted hours?
