Hilarious Moments in IB/PE/HF/S&T/ETC

Hello,

So I've read many posts on WSO, and one that sticks out to me is the hilarious moment's people experienced in their careers. I was sad to see that most of them reached a dead end discussion wise. Therefore, I would like to revive this thread.

What are some hilarious moments you've experienced in finance? These includes interviews, internships, and jobs you've had beyond that

Good thing you didn't. If you did, then it's an automatic no. Of course, he could be testing your maturity, but...highly unlikely.

What did it smell like? You should have started a contest.

Was it loud or silent but deadly?

when something like this happens, do NOT look away. stare deeply into his eyes like a stone cold golem. do not look at him and then avert your eyes, your body language will give you away. do not twitch the nose or move your lips at all, you must remain like a statue until the moment passes. just stare deeply into his eyes with a strong intensity to say, "I could care less if you farted a thousand times, I LOVE IT". Otherwise he will detect some discomfort and feel embarrassed and have to ding you because now you have a humiliating story on him and will be fired for humiliating the bank.

clearly it wasn't silent. and it wasn't that loud but definitely noticeable. It was mid sentence and he just went on.

i drove to lunch one time and had two people in my car. I drive a coupe and its rather low.. after lunch when getting into my car I ripped my pants. I knew as soon as I got in my car and was pissed. When we got back to office I told my boss I would be back. he wanted to know why. the other person was a rather good looking VP and I was pissed so I said" I ripped my pants and need to change" .. i was hoping he would get the point and drop it but he asked.."where? when? " so I had to more or less tell him all the details. I was pretty pissed

GPA alone won't get you the job -- maybe his interview skills are top notch, but funny nonetheless he put 4.3..I'm assuming that's 4.3/4.0

I like the idea a firm saw this guy's resume and thought "Gee, 4.3/4.0 this guy must be good let's get him down for an interview".

Your friend should be beaten with a lead pipe and then castrated.

Why didn't you help him out? Sounds like we've got a blue falcon on our hands.

Blue falcon? I wouldn't go that far. Some people are beyond saving. His friend seems like one of them.
