I have to take down my WSO account - good bye

Rank: Orangutan | 283

It's been great. My posts were meant to be just for shits and giggles. Obviously, some of you were deeply offended. So I decided to take down my account for good. Obviously, whatever I express here are strictly my own opinion and not anyone else's and certaintly not that of my potential employer. I apologize to all of you non-target students, those who work for chop shops and retail banks as well as those of you with no offers. Indeed, my words have caused much havoc amongst you. I wish you all luck finding your dream company.

Good bye

BTW I suck dick at your dream company

Well isn't this convenient now that you learn you can be identified...

Apr 14, 2009

how can you identify him?

Apr 14, 2009

When I was in high school, on a hot day I would prepare my hand and as I would walk by a random person, I'd wipe my hand on their face, beginning with the butt of my hand on their forehead, and ending with the tip of my fingers pulling down their lower lip. When they would push away and look at me in bewilderment, I'd utter 2 words: ball sweat.

My point is, when you're young you do a lot of stupid things without realizing the consequences until much later. Now that I'm older, wiser, and arguably more mature, I understand the consequence of repeatedly wiping your ball sweat on another man's face.... LondonE1.

It's been real, London. Glad to see you're smart enough to get off the forums. But in two weeks when some anonymous fool returns with the same bullshit you spewed all over the place, we'll know who it is. I can't speak for everyone else here, but I certainly look forward to your return. Adios.

I also have some advice for your internship. Be sure to continue to put down non-targets throughout your time with BX Restructuring, as the only people that work there are from Ivies. Specifically, make sure you knock those shitty, undeserving undergrads to senior MD's like Tim Coleman, Mike Genereux, Marty Gudgeon, Art Newman, and Pam Zilly. MDs Peter Laurinaitis, Dave Riddell, and Pete Rose may enjoy your elitist attitude as well. This will ensure that your dream internship becomes your dream job. Best of luck.

PS - Are you sure you can work at Blackstone? About 75% of your seniors are from non-targets. I wouldn't think that someone as intelligent as you would take orders from such an ordinary group of people. You can do much better.

Well, he has been spewing shit all over the forums and he has let everyone know that he is interning at Blackstone Restructuring, the date he received his offer, that he was supposed to be interning for Citi in London, and where he goes to school. If someone at BX read this forum (and I would not be surprised at all if someone does) and saw how bad he was making BX look, it's definitely probable that HR could have contacted him and asked him to end his WSO run.

Apr 14, 2009

Haha...he's taking his account down because he's been identified.

How convenient. Blackstone would love to know about the type of tool they hired.

It's not smart to be a tool when people

A) Know when you got your offer.
B) Where you got your offer.
C) Where you were initially supposed to work (Citi London).
D) The school you attend.

Restructuring Fees

LondonE1:

Official:

Ex. $YourDreamDealSize

-a monthly retainer & success fees: 99% goes to your dream MD I work for, .9% goes to your dream associates who are my colleagues, the rest goes to pay for your mom and your dream condos and cars I own.
-the premium fee=20%x$YourDreamDealSize for your dream company

I hope this helps.

Let's try this with another example:

SA Compensation for 2009

LondonE1:

a top restructuring group in NYC (think HLHZ, Blackstone), early june to early august. $60,000 prorated, no signing bonus (wth?).......

$60k prorated:
- 99% goes to feeding your ego
- 0.9% goes to paying for food/necessities
- The rest goes to strip clubs b/c you can't get any tail
- 100% gets threatened by HR telling you to cut your WSO antics!

It's not that I'm bitter; I will be at my dream firm/group this summer (and no, it's not BX). I just find your presupposition that everyone should want to be you quite unnerving. That said, you follow a long line of WSO comic relief posters, so I await your reincarnation in another name.

The easist person here to ID is Dipset. He has informed others that he:

Plays Football there
Is probably from New ENgland (probably MA)judging by his NE Patriots worship
Is about 6-1, 205, making him a D-Back, Wideout or, at the ivy level, an outside LB/ Whip

It is really easy to ID people here if you know them.

I have ID'd one person here (on his first post), and at least one other person has ID'd me before and PM'd me to say hi.

Apr 14, 2009

People who have no friends need to share their personal accomplishments and goals on online forums because no one in the real world gives a shit about them. These losers have no one to talk to, and thus must resort to divulging personal info on public forums in order to get some sort of personal connection. Its not a problem if you're nice or somewhat cool, but if you're a dick, it will probably come back to haunt you. Finance is a pretty small world.

Joemontana.... What you did in the above post is incredibly wrong. Someone remove his post please. I dont even like dipset but he has the right to anonymity. London however waived his right when he began harassing others.

There is no such thing as a right to anonymity. Even if one wanted to argue that on internet forums there is an unspoken agreement that anonymity should be respected, I don't see how one could legitimately argue that they "deserve" to remain anonymous when the divulge information left and right.

Apr 14, 2009

well if dipset doesn't wanna get ID'd he shouldn't brag about his "accomplishments" to random strangers on an internet forum, that's what friends are for. if some people on this site brag THIS much to anonymous strangers, imagine how annoying they are to people they ACTUALLY KNOW. plus, i doubt that londonE1 works at blackstone, judging by the dumbassness of some of his posts. if one actually worked for a place like BX, im sure they'd be WAY more careful about it.

Just a word of caution, fellas.

Outing anonymous colleagues will have a deleterious effect on the quality of the information on the site.

Consider your self-interest. Outing a college douchebag here or there isn't the end of the world for anyone, but if one senior guy with major scoop to share hesitates for a minute because a couple of nobodies have been outed, we've all lost something pretty valuable.

Just something to think about.

Well the main character in Ugly Americans written by Ben Mezrich (Bringing Down the House) played Wide Reciever at Princeton and set a NCAA D3 record for receiving yards in a game. Guy turned out to be a badass index arb trader at Kidder Peabody trading in Japan in the 90s and later did one of the greatest single trades in the history of the world. Very entertaining read you should check it out.

Or are you hoping I name a school that has a diesel football team, and you can compensate for being a pussy by playing the prestige card?

In any case, I went to USC UG, then HBS, and went on to receive an honorary doctorate at Oxford because I was regularly banging a 70 year old lady who was on the board of trustees.
