To take time off, I have to fill in an "annual leave request form". It's a web form hand-coded by local IT, because nobody else does this, so we need a bespoke tool, of course?

Anyway, the form asks for "hours required". Turns out the label is rewritten to "days required" in the email the office staff get, but the number stays the same.

I only discovered this because the person who normally handles it is on leave herself. So she'd just been ignoring this for years!
