vette simply repeating to you what management told him. Blame management, not vette for sharing what he was told.
Vette has been caught several times lying about alleged conversations with Management. On at least three occasions this past year Vette claimed to just get off the phone with Elmer, but Vette's integrity was questioned when it was discovered Elmer wasn't even available for an alleged call with Vette. i.e. his secretary stated he's been in meetings all morning or he's on a plane heading out of the Province. Bottom line, don't believe for a second that Vette talks to management as much as he alleges. It's all vette smoke and mirrors.
