This is something that I've been meaning to bring up for a long time. So, apparently most women in NYC don't know the difference among different professions in finance. Initially, when women asked me "what do you do" I'd proudly reply with "Well, I work on Wall St. at (insert BB name)." The reactions were very counter-intuitive however. Some women truly did not give a fuck, and conversation went on.
Others followed my reply with stuff like "oh, you guys do taxes and stuff, right?" or "oh, do you work at the exchange building and stuff?" as well as a few crazy hippies who condemned my occupation. So, just a heads up to you prospective monkeys ... If you think that chicks will be super impressed by "I work at Goldman Sachs" ... trust me, the odds are that they won't know what it is. In fact, one of the worst replies I've heard so far was "oh, well, it's not as exciting as being a bartender or a photographer, but you gotta do what you gotta do to make money." #FML
