I have tried to enter into negotiations with the editor of BA news to try to gain a suitable recompense. Sadly the editor has absolutely no idea what negotiation means and has for the past 2 months completely blanked my attempts at communication.
Finally I have managed to get a message through to indicate that I am still pursuing this matter only to have a curt e-mail telling me basically this is the final offer, a cheque has been despatched, take it or leave it.
The frustrating bit is that it's not like this is the end of a protracted discussion... far from it!
The best bit is that the cheque has duly arrived in a BA envelope with a similar curt message on a BA compliment slip, but the cheque.... is a PERSONAL cheque!!! The editor actually thinks I am trying to get money from him/her!!!!
Can anyone suggest who would be a more appropriate person to be talking to as it seems "BA" don't actually know this has happened and the editor is trying to hide the fact. I should point out I'm not trying to get the editor into trouble, but his/her attempts at coverign this up seem to be inevitably leading me down this path!
Thanks in advance,
