Not to mention that I have about $25 to eat and live until they do, and no credit cards? And they are not giving a possible date when they will pay?
Conectiva is a cool company. Or rather: Conectiva is a company where a bunch of cool people work. However, the way they have handled this so far sucks rocks.
To make a long story short: they say the money is in the bank, and that they can not get it out because of a legal issue (there is noone authorized to take the money out, and authorizing someone from Brazil takes a while).
Well, sure, that is all very nice and all, but I will not have money to buy groceries on sunday.
I really hope someone from Conectiva reads this and has about as rotten a weekend as I will have. Of course they will feel bad and eat, while I will feel bad and not eat, but hey, you can't ask for everything.
And I really, really, really hope saying this in a half-public forum doesn't mean they are going to reduce the promised paycheck AGAIN.
