Cincinnati, Ohio (PressExposure) December 16, 2007 -- For one Cincinnati man the Charles Dickensâ story âA Christmas Carolâ is coming true, so he started a website [http://www.scroogeboss.com] to fight back.
This 38 year-old man who is now known as Robbed Cratchit, telecommutes from home and also takes care of his two toddlers. Being able to work from home and be with his children was an ideal situation until a few months ago when his checks stopped coming.
As he inquired about the problem his boss got creative with the solutions and excuses.
Hereâs a tiny sample: 1. The post office has a problem delivering checks with see-through windows 2. The post office needs the last four digits of the zip to deliver to the house 3. The post office lost the check and found it under a desk a month later and now I need to send you a new one. (We called the post office about this and they laughed) 4. Scrooge boss called the post office and they said to allow 10-15 days for delivery even though it is only 4 hours away in the same state. (We called the post office and they said it should only take 2-3 days) 5. The secretary was supposed to mail them, but probably forgot and he canât find them and now she doesnât work there anymore. 6. The new âAccountantâ who Scrooge Boss hired to cut checks conveniently mailed two reissued checks in those darned window envelopes again. 7. Last check mailed supposedly on 11/15/2007 and is missing in action.
Scrooge bossâ last words were âIâm on the case.â
Robbed Crachet has set up a website where he asks the public to buy his products or services from his site or donate money to help him get through the holidays.
Will he make through the holidays? Let's hope so, because it really is for a good cause. You can visit the site at [http://www.scroogeboss.com/]
