4:17 pm
>> they said that was okay. they haven't given me any information about the interest part of it. i believe it's going to still include additional interest even though i'm not making the payment. i have gotten ahold of a few of my credit cards and some of them have actually gone ahead and said no, we need the payment right now. that was before we actually knew for sure whether or not we were going to be fully shut down. >> your landlord, i mean -- >> in the bay area it's very different. for myself, my own personal situation, i deal with the company and because of the way my lease is set up, they absolutely were not willing to go ahead and defer it. they want -- they basically want their money when they want it. there's specific guidelines about when it's due or elsie incur late fees. after a very short period of time. they could start the procedures to have me removed from where i live. >> at least there's a process in place for that. still -- are you going to have to borrow money to get through this?
