This morning, suddenly the lawyer seemed not to remember anything about the bonus I had agreed a month ago in lieu of having to close the operations. Ugly situation.
But I did get a check!
But of course the vermin known as Conectiva's legal representative could not give it to me before the banks closed.
Now, tomorrow morning, I will try to cash it (I have about 18 fingers crossed right now, only two left for typing, so forgive any misspellings).
The weird thing is that this rather minor 24 hour niggle was enough to erase any goodwill I had left towards Conectiva.
The product is nice. Right now, after the quite ugly meeting with the lawyer, however, I will not touch anything related to the company with a ten foot pole, and I suggest any readers do the same thing. Or at least, don't get involved with them in any business: using the software is usually not enough to cause you headaches.
I would mutter about camels and backs, about cups and drops, about other small and sturdy analogies if I had a smaller dislike for cliche.
 Who dared call me conflictive, when they are 28 days late to pay my freaking sallary, not to mention the severance! I may be conflictive: the behaviour of the company he represents and himself can be described by "incompetent || malevolent". I will take the easy way and claim he is about as competent as the average eskimo is competent at surf.
