    True story, I worked with one guy who put 27 hours for one day on his time sheet. It got rejected. He put it back in with an explanation that the day involved a change from day to night shift for which he was entitled to 8 hours pay. It was paid in full, 27 hours pay for one day.

    OP. What does your contract say and what discussions have you had with your client about this. Startups are notorious for wanting their pound of flesh and not paying for it so I'd make sure it's absolutely all above or you'll not see a penny.

    Nice. Even at minimum wage, that will help PC pay back the hardship loan for the new fridge.

    For another gig, it's more of a gentleman's agreement. That's because I know them well and we trust each other. The work is remote so they don't truly know how much time I'm spending but I will save up the odd hour here and there and just charge a full (or half) day when it reaches what I think is worthy of either. I usually charge half day for up to 4 hours and full day for anything more.
    That's what I was thinking. I think it's sensible to charge at least 1/2 day, but if the common practice was to charge a day I'd have no trouble doing that instead. Will have a chat with the client ask what they think is best way to go from their point of view too, find a compromise.

    Thanks for the reply
