    I cant tell you how many times I've told the same relatives what it is I'm trying to get a job in. They always go straight to the "investing" and "stocks" questions. And then I usually get the "oh you can do my finances when I'm retired since your going into finance". I'll give them the benefit of the doubt since to the laymen the name could be misleading.

    Resounding approval from my analyst pit. Loved the "so you're a secretary" bit.

    LMAO Awesome!!! "Do you ever go into a vault? is there tons of cash?" "Are you a teller?" God, I hate getting questions like this.

    The people I know that aren't familiar with the business always assume ibanking has to do with making investments, much like this video showed.

    This was seriously the best one to date! Coming from a foreign background, it's ridiculous how literally ALL these scenarios go down when trying to explain what banking is to relatives.
