I'm generally annoyed with you, yes you Americans in IBD
Alright, I'm a yank who went over to the dark side: Oxon/Canterbury (for you unequipped that's Oxford or Cambridge). Additionally, they're a number of interns from the good schools like UCL or Edinburgh, and St. Andrews. Additionally, we have a few Germans and French, but my overall thing is that now that I've finally come back for an IBD internship at a BB, I'm just being ceaselessly amazed by a few things you guys need to correct:
Slicking back your hair like that fellow on Wall Street Oasis, interviewing random people, is not interesting nor cool. Just do it naturally, and wearing a blazer -- buying only Italian brands -- it does not make you cool. Be natural.
Being incapable of holding a conversation on A.E. Housman, Orwell, or Foucault means you're incapable in life.
Not a socialist eh? Well I am. Odd. Tough. I didn't go to a place where everyone whose parents are aristocrats and whose educations cost 40k a year necessarily mean they can't be. Look at Tony Benn.
Let's face it: most of the banks you would like to go into are no longer American. That means act slightly different when you're in them. For example, if you're an Asian-American at Deutsche then that's fine, but if you're a rotten white kid who went to Columbia, and thus not only has no culture but no soul, then it's alright when I'm utterly shallow to you; let's face it you're worthless.
Indian people. My, my, my. Why are you adopting American culture? Being snobby is alright, about literature, music, and so on, but especially the opera, but being snobby to me? Don't you realise everyone from my university ruled your country with an Iron Fist. Don't you realise that an Indian in Britain realises how utterly inferior their culture is and take to drinking copiously and speaking with the right accent?
Suits. Jesus. New York, for gods sakes stop making them -- you simply can't. It's an affront to the UN Charter and thus the International Convention on Human Rights. If you want to a suit... Marks and Spencers, Charles T., TM Lewin, etc. they serve their purposes.
You can't Drink. Americans, please understand your beer sucks, you know that, but drinking a lot and then getting drunk during the day is not cool. The only time to do is at night. And for god's sakes drinking on your own is fine too.
I do not care for your slang, uncultured silly people.
Know more about your politics; i.e. know that Europeans feel European sometimes. Furthermore, do not assume what Europeans like. You simply do not know yet.
Your women are horrible... on the inside. Half can't dress. Half are so materialistic it makes me blush when I see one on a date. What will she ask for this time?
Admit it you can't be an Irish-American. For one, being Irish is pretty lame. Two, that makes me giggle.
Sorry, it's a rant but all dozen of us on the floor are quite annoyed with you lot. We're happy to take your lower taxes in return though.
Someone knows who David Lloyd George was
