But no ‘Hours’, just ‘Hour’; and ‘Pages’ is only available in the plural. And ‘Truckload’, ‘Ounce’, ‘Load’, and ‘Kilowatt Hour’ are, for no explicable reason, listed twice without even a slight change in the wording.

And the numeric units… why?! Isn’t that what having a number field is for?

Some invoice designer really needs to have a few Outers of human-computer interaction training.

In fact, the only thing I would add is that the “Minimum Billable Unit” needs to be at least twice the rate that they are _charging_ you to get paid.

They bill a “minimum billable unit” for each task, even if the task comsumed a fraction of that time. So, dealing with this company’s unique invoicing system involves a minimum billable unit of one hour since it “cannot be automated like the rest of your clients.”

Seriously. If it’s not the enormous list of units, it’s something else, like a timecard submission system which is backed by some CGI running, almost unbelievably, as a batch file on some machine referred to only by IP address.
