Tales From Impending Bankruptcy

We didn't get paid. How not surprising. There's been no new fax or scheduled pay date. The regional manager did tour the various branches on the local line and spin tales of savior investors and/or business deals. Deals that will allegedly transpire if we can just hold out a little longer. I can't say I have believe him. I'm beyond cynical.

Here is food our branch manager's boyfriend bought us because he knows we haven't been paid and can't afford to eat well.

Here is the schedule for tomorrow. For some reason, I'm still on the schedule even though the staff knows I won't be coming. Some poor Help teacher is going to get five kids classes in a row. Eeek! My branch could easily keep four to five teachers busy on a weekend, but this week there will be only one teacher. If they're lucky.

I can't wait to go to Thailand. Only three more days.

Far be it for me to say how the both of you should spend your money....but...what if you didnt go on your vacation and used the money to go back home instead?

Because it's one of those pre-paid, non-refundable packages, but mostly because I'll be damned if Nova ruins our trip. We have enough credit and/or savings in America to buy tickets home if necessary. The new "target date" for pay is "around" October 25th. If that actually comes through we'll use that :-)

Gosh, I'm so sorry that you are going through this... but it'll be good to come home right??
