yeah exactly. I know what you mean.

I used to gig for a top end investment bank. i've told them many times that I'm a contractor such that i provide you with a service and our relationship is b2b.
But yet, whenever I tell them that i'm not available on a particular day; they request me to enter into their HR employee system and input as "annual leave"
I mean... it's frustrating, they don't get it don't they.

I say; wait, i'm not an employee. they reply; yes but you need to comply with our systems & procedures
