Re: new uniforms over a month late on delivery
Nearly 30 years ago (hard to believe it was that long) I took a job where they were still waiting on the uniforms to be delivered from the previous Fall. It seems that the company and the Superintendent were locked in a battle over cost and the shoe order that was never delivered. According to the company, the shoes had been destroyed in a warehouse fire and the district would have to reorder (not really a problem) and repay (a big problem). Unless they did, the company would not ship the uniforms and by the way, hats would cost extra. This went on for several years with lawyers for both sides being the only ones getting paid until one day we got a letter that the company had closed their doors and ceased operation. Never did get new uniforms the five years I was there.
