Turning down Goldman Sachs Special Situations offer to work at a 5 man hedge fund is their still time to go back?

I received a offer from the GS SSG with a high base salary and bonus but I didnt go through with it because I thought I can go big with a 5 man $3mm hedge fund (I was the head analyst), sad to say the least the HF imploded when the DOW dropped and it only lasted 3 weeks, we also owed $300k+.

I have been emailing the person who gave me the offer over LinkedIn but he wont respond to me and i'm literally crying wondering what has my life come too. I am jobless living in a apartment at the Upper East Side going to be evicted and I don't know what to do.

Do people just sit at work and think hmmm.......... I'm gonna write a fake post on WSO.

Can't even imagine how bored you have to be at work.

Seriously how did you get an offer GS SSG, yet are unwise enough to join a $3mil aum "hedge fund".... 3 mil sounds like a personal portfolio not a fucking hedge fund

thots and prayers
