I clicked on the side "forum topics" box and made a comment. I deleted it because it does not relate to IB.

An intern spent two weeks on a project and scheduled an 11AM meeting to present his work to the director of our group. The day before the meeting the intern was boasting about some "sick" concert he was going to that night. You can see where this is going. The intern got obliterated and slept in until 1045AM when he decided to call our director and ask if he could push the meeting back to noon. Needless to say, his work went unseen and he didn't get a return offer.

1. Fake a heart attack so he could get out of his contract earlier to go for a consulting internship.
2. Literally live in the office for 12 weeks, because he couldn't find a place to stay in time within his budget. Needles to say, he got a return offer.

Watching porn at work is usually grounds for termination if you're a poor performer... unless you're in Japan.

This kid wasn't a SA, but was going through recruitment. Showed up to the interview in khakis and polo. He didn't get an offer

Did he also have Sperrys and Costa Del Sols with croakies?

Speak.

Seriously, though - spell the firm's name wrong in an email. And not an understandable typo.

The senior investment bankers must be used to hearing all the family deaths once PE recruiting starts every year from the second year analysts...

Went back to the office after a mandatory work happy hour and passed out drunk at my desk. Woke up with the worst hangover imaginable at around 6am drooling on my keyboard. MD walked by a few minutes later and give me a head-nod. Think he thought I had pulled an all-nighter. Got the offer.
