TUCSON, AZ--(Marketwire - Aug 2, 2012) - The following is a statement from Vante:
Vante regrets the unfortunate events that transpired yesterday in Tucson between our former CFO/Treasurer Adam Smith and an employee at Chick-fil-A. Effective immediately, Mr. Smith is no longer an employee of our company.
The actions of Mr. Smith do not reflect our corporate values in any manner. Vante is an equal opportunity company with a diverse workforce, which holds diverse opinions. We respect the right of our employees and all Americans to hold and express their personal opinions, however, we also expect our company officers to behave in a manner commensurate with their position and in a respectful fashion that conveys these values of civility with others.
We hope that the general population does not hold Mr. Smith's actions against Vante and its employees.
Jack Straw: I would have fired Adam Smith within seconds

First, I hope that this brings a smile to the young lady he was such a putz towards.
Second, he can now take pride in making a real sacrifice for his ‘principals’! Yet I think he might find his circle of friends and family somewhat more uncomfortable. “What, you really did that? What were you thinking?!”
I read they make catheters.
>> I am talking about the worldwide aftermath.
I would hope that rather than traumatized, she’d be gratified, if maybe a little overwhelmed, by the outpouring of empathy for her. And maybe even feel a bit vindicated.
I dunno. She handled herself well but as a woman I can definitely tell you that she was scared. He was acting like a loon and after the recent Aurora shooting, it probably crossed her mind that he could go off.
I saw fear in that poor girls eyes.

A very limited time in this case.
It’s being distributed by PR Newswire so it legit for sure.
I saved the page, so it’ll have a date/time stamp on it.
Not only that, but now she has worldwide internet fame - with even Jack Straw commenting on it..and with that...comes the nut jobs.
Like I said, just a young girl living her live and now her world is turned upside down.
>> Well he can always get free water at CFA.
What’d the guy do. Tried searching on utube a google and got no hits. bump
Hope glenn Beck gives credit to this employer. He showed the drive through incident on GBTV tonight. Thursday Aug 2.
BUMP THAT THOUGHT!
"Rachel", (i think was her name) I feel will be blessed abundantly for handling the situation so well. No doubt will be getting job offers of her own. That kind of character can't necessaarily be taught....you either have it or you don't. She has it. She has already proven to a prospective employer how she handles herself under pressure.
Chick-Fil-A handled yesterday's swarm amazingly. We went to one at 9:30 at night. It was packed, but all employees were still smiling and helpful. We even had one come to our table to see if we would like a free cup of coffee: "I just put a fresh pot on...would be happy to bring anyone a cup!"
Hopefully they’re on it, you’re right about him possibly going postal.
I hope this girl is a Christian and if she’s interviewed she’ll say she forgives the guy.
I’d also be afraid this guy will get revenge or go postal.
