Yeah, so I was actually talking about you and the fact that: 1. we do not collaborate 2. I have no idea what you want in the portfolio 3. collaboration at this point would be a bad idea. It was definitely overheard by a colleague, who may or may not tell you. I: 1. was not mean or rude 2. did not say anything untrue.
But I still should not have been so careless. It was a dumb mistake and for that I apologize.
