Sly colleagues are always present in the work place. They have no professional ethics, can twist the facts as per their suitability and can tell lies without blinking their eye lids. To overcome them and also to maintain a good impression to the boss, an agile brain to asses and respond to a situation is an absolute necessity.

DebGuta, I think you did very well by sticking to the FACTS and not trying to create an illusion of truth which would be a lie. 

   My wife and I worked in Mumbai for Reliance creating the largest wireless system in the world.  I was surprised that none ofcthexworkers would tell  their bosses if there was a problem . They just stayed quiet and would never say anything. They felt it was not respectful to say anything. 

    In the public we saw many half finished roads and buildings.  We were told all the money disappeared by corruption. Yet we knew they workers were honest and very hard working. They would always do a double shift of work if asked. Many times for no pay. We also worked 6 days a week 10 hour days. 

   So it was the few fast talkers that used their smarts to deceive that caused most projects to fail. 

   I think you did the right thing.
