Dot Field, a veteran in communication on Vodacom, has decided to leave the cellular operator after 15 years of service "to pursue her own business interests".
This announcement might seem little different to any other resignation release except for the fact that Vodacom didn't spin it too well.
The cellular operator sent out a 05:40 PM version, recalled it at 05:41 PM and resent it at 05:59 PM. This set one wondering whether Vodacom had made a mistake? But there seemed to be no noticeable difference in the 05:40 PM and 05:59 PM e-mail. Perhaps Vodacom decided to use the 18 minute interval to persuade Field not to leave but were unsuccessful.
