Hi Marçal,

 

First, I would like to point some small faults on your post. I’m not being picky or anything, just a little heads up, I hope you don’t mind.

 

“the company who I work with” the company which/that I work for. (or, a person I work with).

 

Now to the question.

 

I’ve heard some expressions like, “Shame on you” – Tenha vergonha!
She has no shame! (Ela nao tem vergonha.)

 

In the meaning you might be looking for can be something like “It’s a shame you can’t come with us” meaning “E uma pena que voce nao pode vir conosco.”

 

Just remember the word “shame” is a noun and also a verb.


Sid.
