Mod note (Andy): throwback Thursday, this originally went up on 9/22/12.

I would like to extend a warm welcome to myself, Prestigious Pete. I am a jealousy amalgam, created from combining all the conceited, self-assured finance super douches into one man called Prestigious Pete.

After finishing up at Andover, I went on to attend Yale University, where I majored in Sociology, played Varsity Golf, and was president of the Delta Kappa Epsilon fraternity. I then marched over to Blackstone M&A upon graduating, because Goldman Sachs was not prestigious enough. After my brief stint at Blackstone, I went swiftly to Harvard Business School, where I spent two years going to costume parties, travelling the world, and adding hundreds of notches to my bedpost. After graduating from HBS, I now work at a private equity megafund. At the tender age of 25, I make 450K base, wear a $40,000 watch, and have outsourced the tying of my shoelaces in the morning to some nice Puerto Rican chaps.

Feel free to ask me anything, and make sure to nod silently in genuine admiration of my achievements, greatness, wealth, and prestige.

    This just seemed kind of appropriate...

    I just picture you filling in for Denis Leary.

    That's just my way of saying welcome to another crappy troll to WSO.

    Pete -- need your help with some prestige questions:

    Mercedes or Audi?

    Equities, fixed income, or other?

    Natural conception or fertility clinic?

    Tax haven: Cayman Islands or Luxembourg?

    WSO or WSJ?

    SirTradesaLot:
    Mercedes or Audi?

    One of each, of course. Though sometimes if I'm in a good mood I'll let one of my drivers choose which one he'll drive me in for that day.

    SirTradesaLot:
    Equities, fixed income, or other?

    I don't have time to deal with those kinds of minute details. I'm very high level.

    SirTradesaLot:
    Natural conception or fertility clinic?

    When a chick starts even approaching the topic, I take her off my rotation.

    SirTradesaLot:
    Tax haven: Cayman Islands or Luxembourg?

    I'm not sure what taxes are, sounds like a poor person problem.

    SirTradesaLot:
    WSO or WSJ?

    Neither, Financial Times is the most prestigious reading material so naturally that's what I carry around. The pale salmon color makes me smile.

    Neither, football and religion are for the middle class. I'm too busy worshiping my biceps, and the only "wide receivers" I care for are size 34D.

  • SirTradesaLot's picture

    One more thing, what exactly is prestige? Is it possible to become prestigious or do you need to be born prestigious? If I work really hard in life and make a ton of money, can my kids at least become prestigious (even if I can't)?

    Prestige is a quality of supreme excellence. Further explanation is not possible, because if you have prestige then knowledge of it is self evident, and if you don't have prestige, then no amount of words can elucidate it. I'm sorry you had to hear it from me.

    Pete: What is the more prestigious, Greenwich or the UES? I mean what is more balling, a sick estate in the back country or Belle Haven or a 5000 sq ft. apartment on 5th avenue in the 65-72nd street range?

    Also, how many clubs should a truly prestigious fellow belong to?? My personal take is at least 3 but no more than 5 with good geographical dispersion. Something along the lines of Stanwich for local outings, Crystal Downs for the real rustic experience, Bandon Dunes on the West Coast, and Shinnecock for summers in the Hamptons?

    Please enlighten us, oh prestigious one.

    Prestigious is having it all. I don't need to choose, I have it all. Greenwich proper and Old Greenwich. UES, UWS, Soho, Tribeca. Vail, Beverly Hills. You name it, I've got it, because that's just what I deserve.

    A truly prestigious fellow only belongs to one club. Of course, if you don't know which one I'm referring to, then you're not in it.

    The only thing that's clear here is your blatant dearth of prestige and class. But that's okay, I'm still generous with your kind. I have a few positions that might be opening up: scraping soapscum off my maids' bathtubs, ironing my massive collection of hermes ties every day, polishing the glossy surfaces inside my private jet, etc. If you really feel that you're capable of performing one of these important roles, feel free to send your resume to one of my secretaries.

    Yeah, your right. I don't have any prestige or class. Prestige is an illusion buddy. Learn that one well. Still, you're not answering the question. I demand an answer otherwise, it's clear you can't answer the question and thus are hiding behind the guise of prestige to account for your own gross incompetence. Or, I suppose you just like deflecting things away from yourself when you can't give a real answer. I guess that's just the life of a worthless troll for ya.

    I was afraid of that. But, can my kids become prestigious if I amass, let's say, $2 billion? Then I buy a spot at HBS for them at the age of 16? Then a managing director role at Blackstone by 21?

    Prestige cannot be bought. That kind of foolish thinking is the hobgoblin of little minds. Prestige has to be earned. Like I earned it.

    Uh... It sounds like your path to Prestige was bought or you got a lot of financial aid from Andover and Yale which isn't prestigious at all. Sounds like you had someone buy your way into the Prestige club.

    Remember, prestige always wins over oafishness, regardless of the nature of the contention. And the fact is, that all the commoners love Chuck Norris. And if all the commoners love you, then you're doing something wrong and you lack prestige. So I think the answer is pretty clear here.

    You'd settle for a 34D over the standard 32D? As far as I'm concerned the only things that need that solid of a foundation are multistory buildings and bank accounts. If you're going to settle for a 34 then atleast go 34DD.

    'Eh, I'll pass on the 9 iron and take the works of Cab Calloway, Ella Fitzgerald, Satchmo and Ol' Blue Eyes accompanied by a glass of Diplomatico Ambasasador, Havana Club 15 Year, English Harbour 25 Year, El Dorado 25 Year or a 21 year old Scotch instead. An overly hyped set of golf clubs really does nothing to impress me. Usually it's the sign of someone with a napoleon complex that they need to devote their life to the pursuit of prestige and material wealth that they rely on the status imbued by golf clubs and cars to overcome their handicap.

    Pete: When you say a prestigious fellow only joins one club, you are clearly talking about Augusta National.

    Also, a shiny new Callaway 9-iron??? Callaway's are probably the least prestigious type of golf clubs out there. The only people I see with Callaway's at my club are awful golfers - they need those monstrosity of cavity backed clubs. All prestigious men play blades, preferably Titleist blades. They require the skill that can only be forged over a lifetime.

    That's not what my boy Mitty Rom said the other day when we met for some brewskis. We talked about golf clubs, private equity, prestige, and the hilarious perils of the middle class. Oh no, my spaghetti sauce coupon expired. Oh no, I need to apply for a mortgage loan. Oh no, I don't know what to write in my post-first-round-interview-thank-you-note. Lolcats.

    Anyway, I got a tee time coming up, so I have to take my elite golf clubs and show off my swing for a little bit, while my troop of caddies cream their jorts.

    Bone with sillian braille print or eggshell with romalian type?

    Neither font, I had a team of calligraphers and IT guys whip up a personalized font just for me. It's a kind of super-elegant cursive that only the prestigious are able to read.

    Prestigious Pete:
    Frieds:
    An overly hyped set of golf clubs really does nothing to impress me.

    That's not what my boy Mitty Rom said the other day when we met for some brewskis. We talked about golf clubs, private equity, prestige, and the hilarious perils of the middle class. Oh no, my spaghetti sauce coupon expired. Oh no, I need to apply for a mortgage loan. Oh no, I don't know what to write in my post-first-round-interview-thank-you-note. Lolcats.

    Anyway, I got a tee time coming up, so I have to take my elite golf clubs and show off my swing for a little bit, while my troop of caddies cream their jorts.

    So what your saying is you got drunk and acted like a jackass then?

    Prestigious Pete:
    futurectdoc:
    Pete is not a prestigious name

    Pete is short for Peter, a strong Roman name, a product of the finest Western European blood, mixed over time to produce a true American mutt, the epitome of prestige.

    True prestige on Wall Street is having a pedigree, not being a mutt, and going by your first name is not prestigious, it should be First Initial, Middle Name, Last name for true prestige. Also Peter, it sounds very ethnic and unoriginal, not prestigious at all.

    I'm not like your kind with your unpresitigious livers. I can not only hold my expensive alcohol but carry intelligent conversations at the same time. Why don't you go back to drinking your natty lights and whatever else you poor uncultured swine guzzle.

    I've seen you around, NewGuy. You've got potential kid, I'll give ya that, but you still have a long road ahead. Stick with me and you might end up fine. I'm going to grant you the privilege of being my protege, but this is currently temporary. We'll see how you do. Your first task is helping me to fend off these disgusting hordes of ignorant, unprestigious buffoons.

    Ok, futurectdoc, firstly, I want to grant you that it is indeed elite and prestigious to go by F-Initial / M-Name / L-Name, but admitting such a fact would suggest weakness on my part, which I cannot allow to be perceived. So instead I would suggest to consider sucking on a gas-pipe.

    Secondly, I did my undergrad at Yale. Yale University. Yale University in New Haven, CT. Not too far from my original home in Greenwich, CT. This is the epitome of undergraduate pedigree. Then I went to Harvard Business School, which needs no type of elaboration whatsoever. Which part of all this eludes your feeble understanding? Maybe you should look into getting some more grey matter.

    Thirdly, I go by Pete for personal reasons, Prestigious Pete is a nickname that I got during my fraternity days when I was gloriously hazing puny pledges, which is a story for another day.

    I was not rejected you slimy vermin, I turned them down. That's just how prestigious I am.

    Come on now, Petie. Had you actually attended Yale, you'd have referred to it as Yale College, not Yale University.
