My MD has asked me to wait in line at his favorite Halal Guys spot for an hour to pick up his food and I'm not sure if I should stay in the industry after that.
I work at a top boutique, and never in my wildest dreams did I imagine that I would find myself waiting in line for an hour to get food for my MD.
The reason I wanted to become an investment banker wasn't to be someone's food-fetching minion. I wanted to become an investment banker because of the grind and its prestige. I was literally ready to tackle any challenge, but this... I never thought that I would wait in line for an hour to get someone's food just because they had spent more years in the industry than me.
I feel disgusted and used. If he had told me to work 20 hours a day, I would have been fine with it, but using me as a delivery driver? It was really disrespectful and humiliating. I'm questioning whether I should leave or not.
