|06:09 pm - Deeply Sucky Financial News|
I just learned that a company that I've don't lots of work for over the past year, and which is currently several months overdue in paying me around $2,500 (and is not yet overdue in paying me $700 more) is in serious trouble because the head of the company looks like he has been stealing lots of money from them. This clearly explains why I haven't been paid, but calls into question if I will ever be paid, and I already need that money. The bright side is that the game is very popular, and the developer is a good and honorable person who will likely be able to find a new company to publish the game if the current company goes into bankruptcy (which seems quite possible). Thankfully, I have work for two other companies, as well as a good opportunity for work with a third, but none of that puts money in my pocket now or in the near future :( Needless to say, none of this is public, and should remain non-public until the whole mess comes to light (which sounds like it will be soon). Ugh - this year has already really sucked financially
Current Mood: indescribable
That really does suck. I hope you get paid eventually.
That is seriously deeply sucky. I hope that they extract the cash from the CEO's flesh and send it to you.
The problem with that is how little it is actually worth on the open market. Unless you mean transplantable organs, in which case...
I understand that kidneys go well on the transplant black market. Especially ones from in-country -- much better transport conditions than the ones from Latin America.
Word has been received. Research is underway. Intelligence is being analysed - please inform when you are in a position to discuss specifics.
This shall change.
Oh, crap! I know the "waiting on a big check" feeling, and although I suspect you're right, I'm hoping your luck will pull you through with the payment they already owe you.

I am so, so sorry to hear that.
The RPG industry: let's light it on fire. :)
