Captain’s Log 5,773
It just gets more complicated. Long story short, our payroll may have been compromised because of some actions of the Confederacy. Fortunately, we caught it in time (hopefully) – before our entire payroll disappeared into someone else’s system. What they are doing now can be considered a felony. I am just about to peel off my gloves and do a little face punching. No Zen for me this morning.
I contacted the mayor’s office to let them know what is happening. Apparently, the scheming started over a year ago when his office met with some of the players. He assured me that we have nothing to worry about. The city would never throw us out the door with the bath water. He asked me to put my concerns in writing. I sent a 2-page letter of our achievements and goals – and a copy of our audited financial statements. He assured me that the city council thinks highly of our museum and the changes we have made. Our position is safe and no bullies in the world will be able to just grab us away.
So now I get to deal with the payroll service. Three months ago, they sent our paychecks to the wrong place, and now they started a process to transfer our data to another company. This is not fun. I am STEAMING angry. They keep telling me they don’t know who authorized the transfer. That is total bullshit, and I will get to the bottom of it. If I don’t get satisfaction today, I will report them to the Better Business Bureau. I am also ready to retain counsel and go after them with both guns blazing.
I can only be nice for so long.
