GoingToBeAnMD Tribute

One of my favorite aspects of this site is the personalities. Frequent commenters are often bizarre people - after all, you'd have to be somewhat odd to frequently comment here.

GoingToBeAnMD is becoming an all-time poster, slowly but surely. Here are my favorite facts about him

  • He is in his late 30s
  • He works in the back office, but that won't stop him from doling out career advice to private equity investment professionals
  • He makes "200k++" as he refers to it in one of his comments. He added the 2nd plus to let you know it's reeeeally high 200s. He's making almost as much as a first year PE associate, impressive!
  • He is moving to Manhattan and taking a post-tax pay cut. He plans on living in a 419 sf apartment while having 200 sf of parking for his two cars
  • He enjoys hooking up with plus size women
  • He can't eat seafood because it's icky
  • He thinks "being open minded in the bedroom" is one of the top things a woman looks for in a man

I'm obviously a huge fan, so feel free to share some fun facts of your own

GoingToBeAnMD prides him/her/themself on being able to dominate long-drawn out arguments with Prospects (i.e., HS seniors and College freshmen). Maybe the W/L stats on WSO arguments is what a career BO puts on their resume when asking for a promotion?

Another one I forgot: he won't eat at a restaurant that doesn't use OpenTable or Resy. Does he not know about all the Michelin star restaurants that make you call for reservations or use their specific online portal?

It was a sub-zero morning, late January, I was walking past the Hudson on the way to a spur of the moment client meeting. The sort that requires a quick scramble for papers before rushing out, wrong shoes and everything. I should've seen the stroller coming, but I was posting on this forum, and the next thing I know my ankles were swept from under me and I fell into the icy depths.

I'd accepted death already, it was preferable to the $4k rent I was paying, and I closed my eyes to allow the murky abyss to absorb me. Maybe I'll become a Netflix documentary? Suddenly however I feel a pair of strong hands grab me from under my arms and haul me out, dragging me to the surface and waking me up.

It was GoingToBeAnMD! He had saved me! "My friend you cannot die now" he states "not when there are many more voluptuous women to make love to, and to feed on the $200k++ salary you can make in PE The pluses mean it's more by the way!" I'm outstanded as he drops me onto the dry, cold grass and he nods proudly. "Will I ever see you again?" I ask, shaken.

"Wherever there is awful advice to give, blatantly wrong statements to make, fat women to pipe or extra pluses to add. I'll be there!" And with that he vanished.

Thanks GoingToBeAnMD, a true street hero

Unless the restaurant doesn't have OpenTable service!
