Just got back from a quick lunch break, first one i've had in 6 months not at the desk. I'm a 25yro quant trader/geek at a well known hedge fund in NYC and I pull in around $250k-$500k, all in, depending on the year. I was just at a bar downtown and this well known 23yro actress came in (not going to say who). Not knowing she was THE actress, I told her she looked like a gorgeous famous actress when she and her friend sat near me. (HINT: She was in a popular spy tv series) I know I know, you think i'm fucking crazy.

For about 15 mins she never revealed who she REALLY was and we just talked for a bit. I was in a pretty nice suit and she asked me where I worked and if I was one of those "tech start up boys, rags-to-riches" type thing before telling me she worked in "entertainment". I said no, I worked in finance.

So anyways, still not knowing who she really was, I asked for her number. She gave it to me. Didn't want to be bullshitted, I called her right then to make sure it was legit and so she had my number as well. Then I got up to leave... and some nearby NYU college kids started hounding her like asking her for an autograph and shit. She turns to me and smiles then looks away and im walking out the door like HOLY SHIT.

SO.....tell me right now that was all some upcoming reality show where actresses try to land dates with normal people. but what the fuck was that? would a famous actress really consider some up-and-coming finance asshole like us?

The HBS guys have MAD SWAGGER. They frequently wear their class jackets to boston bars, strutting and acting like they own the joint. They just ooze success, confidence, swagger, basically attributes of alpha males.
