Tim your part of the financial problem. The Archbishop is being father and merciful. If he expose you with you financial involvement on how much you gotten paid, you would jump off the cliff.

Of course you gotta love the attempt at the English language. But let's do this again (since I did this before). I was on salary with the CB Gift Shop from late 2009 to the end of 2013. Below are my W-2's for 2012 and 2013. My salary was always the same. There were no raises. People who visited the Gift Shop during that period can verify that I was there and I was working...a lot! Oh, and also bear in mind that my wife and I have 11 children to feed, clothe, house, and educate.

My company, Veritas Books, did the most of the purchasing for the CB Gift Shop since Veritas Books had the accounts with most of the vendors. Veritas Books would make the purchase and submit the invoice to the CB Gift Shop for reimbursement. A spreadsheet was shared with the CB Management so they would know what to reimburse Veritas Books for. 

I have copied part of the spreadsheet below to show the activity. As you can see, the amounts purchased and reimbursed averaged about $3,300 per month, thus about $40,000 per year for about four years. 

In addition, the CB Gift Shop purchased the John Paul the Great Book & Gift Shop inclusive of all its fixtures and approximately $60,000 in inventory. This was paid off over a period of the 4 years I worked with the gift shop. 

In addition to the many hours I worked researching, purchasing, receiving, stocking, and managing the store, I conducted several seminars and a weekly study group. The CB Gift Shop got a pretty good deal for $21,000 per year before taxes. 

So yah, go ahead and expose me. By the way, thanks for the reminder. The Gift Shop still owes me over $2000 dollars since your friends fired the staff before they could make the last reimbursement. Tell your friends to expect my bill.
