Did you see that Hellman's mayonaise has modified their "quart" jar?
Despite years of hearing claims (by accountants) to the contrary, maybe accountants have figured out a way to apply examples from the product world to their own practices...
Taking a cue from Hellman's Mayonnaise, who recently redefined the quart as 30 ounces instead of 32, the approach is simple. Hours are now 54 minutes long instead of 60.
Echoing Unilever, Bill Billum said, "At DOB&H we have always taken great pride in offering the highest quality services at reasonable and fair prices. Recently, inflationary pressures have brought about by the increased costs of our people. Rather than raise our prices, we chose to slightly reduce the size of the hour."
