How should I bill my time?
Today was a peculiar day at work. I had to do some running around with a coworker in a U-Haul truck. So I met my coworker at a bus station at 7:00AM. We drove to U-Haul, picked up the truck, did our business, and drove to the company building. We then drove back to the U-haul facility, and he dropped me off at the bus station (where my car was parked).
So first all, mileage: A typical commute is 10 miles for me. I had to do 15 miles to get to the bus station, so should I bill them for the additional 8 miles plus 1.50 in toll (which I would not have paid during my normal commute)?
And lastly, time: I was planning on calling my start time 7:00AM, because that is when I arrived and met my coworker. But it's end time which I am unsure of. Should I call it a day at 5:15, when I left the building with my coworker (en route to the bus station). Or, should I call it a day at 5:45, when I actually arrived at the bus station?
