why you should always bill your clients on time

Please note that these are not direct quotes.

ME: I received this bill from a consultant for a trip they took months ago. It seems kinda late. Should I send it back?

PROJECT MANAGER: Charge it to Client #1.

CLIENT #1: This invoice should have gone to Client #2. We weren’t involved in this stage of the project.

ME: Should I redirect this invoice to Client #2?

PROJECT MANAGER: Okay.

CLIENT #2: This invoice should not have been charged to us. We were not involved in this project at all.

ME: Who the heck does this invoice belong to? You told me to invoice it to Guy.

PROJECT MANAGER: Guy left Client #2 a million years ago and he’s on his own now.

ME: Wut.

PROJECT MANAGER: Send the invoice to Client #3.

Fingers crossed that this one works!
