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.
