Feeling bad abt telling a colleague off but also feeling annoyed that even after I said repeatedly that the client is on compliance leave and cannot work on any deals, my colleague wrote in his e-mail, “As spoken earlier…”

Luckily I stopped him before the e-mail went out. Unfortunately, my reaction was a little harsh – I said, “Are you trying to fucking kill the client?”

He just doesn’t seem convinced that breaching compliance leave has serious consequences if you’re in a bank. And I did say to address the e-mail to the client’s boss! ARGH!

Sense of Entitlement Indeed

I know we’re only 2 months into 2016 but I may have come across the most ridiculous thing for this year already!

I was proof reading a tender document today when I saw that an overseas colleague listed “sense of entitlement” as a positive trait of a broker. I thought my eyes were playing tricks on me so I showed my boss the slide. His response was, “WTF? So he thinks we’ll win the account just by showing up is it?”
