So I am a very attractive male (or at least people say I am, and girls literally threw themselves at me in college)

Will I be treated differently b/c of my looks in Investment Banking?
Will the other male analysts resent me or look up to me?
Will the straight MDs give me higher bonuses b/c subconsciously they have a crush on me? Or will I make them feel emasculated?
Will the gay MD's come on to me and make things uncomfortable?

So basically, I'm really worried that people will judge me on my looks rather than performance. Am I just being paranoid?

True story: I used to have a boss who would ALWAYS prop his leg up on the desk when speaking with a female intern/analyst/associate. ALWAYS.

Why stop at tight trousers? Thrust your cock into co-workers' unwillingly, unsuspecting faces and see what happens. At the very least, they'll know you mean business.

Mockery of the same thread posted by a female a few days ago??? Could have been stronger but I applaud the effort.

sadly, i think attractive people do get treated differently. nice post though

No one cares what you look like. They only care about cock size--girth, not length. Will you get treated better with a big one? Absolutely--where do you think 'big swinging dick' comes from?

The key is letting everyone know you're packing heat. Sure...you can be like every other guy and talk a big game, but the way forward is obvious: full-frontal nudity in the middle of the trading floor.

If HR catches on, you're fucked, but if you play your cards right, you'll be getting a BJ from an MD and a job at Moore Macro (as I hear it, they LOVE big swinging dicks over there).

3/3/10

Wow, monty, good story. So, where did you go from there...how does one go from being fired to IBD?

3/3/10

1. I was an intern
2. I did not work for a BB again for 4 years

3/3/10

I was at said coffee with Monty09 and said VP was indeed attractive.

Great story Monty... in my haste I accidentally threw monkey shit at you. I will now use my last two credits to give you silver bananas on your other posts. BTW, you should kick IT in the nuts.

3/3/10

props seconded--made my night!

3/4/10

how does IT even get their grubby hands on this stuff? so they notice all the e-mails being sent, whoopee. can they accuse you of having a relationship when that's all the proof they have? never trust ops people.

=========================================
We are excited to formally extend to you an offer to join Bank of Ameria

my favorite part is, You:"how about lunch?" Her:"how about dinner?" You:"how about breakfast?" Her:"Oh my"

3/4/10

didnt think people would like it so much... I have some other crazy stories but have to get me drinking for them to come out

3/5/10

hahaha what a great thread...
"pounded like an idaho potatoe" lol!

3/6/10

so when do we get to hear these stories? I personally want to hear about the soccer mom (in similar detail to the s&t vp)

3/6/10

I wish I had credits for silver banana. Classic.

I believe I had the opportunity like Monty as an intern once. But unfortunately lacked his forward/awesomeness. Looking back, I kinda wish I did. Not like I actually went back to that company.

Damn, the soccer mom AND her sister. WFT! I guess, it's not like the soccer mom can call you out on it if she was(?) still married. All she can do is bitch to her sister.

What I want to know. How do you handle the aftermaths of these hook-ups? When I had a one nighter --> turned to one weeker. It was so awkward afterward, This was still back in college. What's coaching LL like and your relationship with the said VP --> MD like now?
