I saw your notes on the outrageous post about the 1% and I couldn't help but be curious about they things your friend experienced...
Hi there! So, yeah, it’s kind of a freakish story, because I went to high school with this girl - we were in the same class, and she was so sweet - the bookwormish and Did you know there’s a wasp called Aha ha and ‘save the whales’ kind of student, you know? And after graduating, she studied maths, and then we sort of lost touch - I heard she was working in London when I was living in the UK, so I reached out and got a very weird email back. We finally met on a train, just randomly, about five years after that, and that’s when she told me what had happened to her.
[Disclaimer: I’m not saying all banks and consulting companies are cults, but if how much money you make depends on how many people you screw over, then maybe it’s normal you attract a crowd of psychopaths and pathological narcissists, and things generally go downhill from there.]
