Trying to get them to give me a time sheet that makes sense, which can be correctly cost coded (to prove that the task needs them & the budget) & when I give them a blank template to speed matters up all they do is get the huff

Does not matter what trade, they are all the same from sparkies to consultants !

Blimey all I am trying to do is pay them..

So long as you give them a job code for marking idle time, and don't unleash the hordes of hell on them for using it, and accept your own incompetency caused the idle time then I'm good with that. :wink

I once made a cup of tea with a tampax in it as they did ask for a “string tea”... by email no less, they got the hint

Lovely may be an exaggeration.
