As an intern at a trading desk at a BB, I had numerous fuckups. too many to elaborate on. However, I still held out hope of getting, If not a full time offer by some stroke of luck, then at least some interviews with other desks as the previous douche bag intern had done. complete f**ko that guy.
Anyways, the icing on my f**koff cake, was when I, rather innocently, followed my teams tradition of emailing everyone on the desk in regards to a couple days off. What I had failed to notice was that previously, nearly everyone on my team, from the balding analysts to the obese MD, had given at least 3 months notice and REQUESTED permission to fuck off. no more than 2 people could be off on holidays / long whoring weekends at one time.
