Asking for Favors

OK, here is my Work Guy story from yesterday...

As we all remember from last week, Work Guy doesn't like me for his own reasons, but we sort of ironed things out and everything is basically copacetic. While things are better, I would hardly refer to him as a "buddy". So, I was a little surprised to get the following email yesterday morning:

"AM,

I have a quick question for you. My nephew will be a senior at Harvard this year majoring in Business. He would really like to go into buy side equity analysis, and is hoping to find a school year internship in that field. I remember from talking with you boyfriend at our Christmas party that he works for XYZ Money Management. Could you check with him and see if they have any formal internship programs, or if they have a need for an intern this fall?

Thanks in advance,

Work Guy"

Yea, how about "Fuck you, asshole!" OK, so I didn't actually write that, even though I wanted to. Seriously, it is not like we finished lunch last week with a hug and an agreement to be best friends. It was actually sort of tense and kinda weird...he made it clear that he didn't like me all that much and basically promised only to not be openly hostile.

Apparently his idea of not being openly hostile is asking for favors. Now, I love networking...I love introducing people and helping people with things like this. But basically only people that I like!!! Or at least people that like me...

So, I sent The Boy an email saying that I was going to send him another email asking about internships and copy Work Guy, and that he was to respond that they don't have Interns or that they do, but the boss' son is already signed on or whatever. Presto...Work Guy gets a response from The Boy about how I asked him about internships, but unfortunately they already have their interns lined up, but that he will ask around at some other places to see if anyone is looking.

So now I look like a nice girl, even though I was not very nice at all:-) I am so devious!!!

I feel so dirty now that you have dragged me into your web of lies and deceit.

You're an evil Bitch...and The Boy a great pawn...and the only thing better would have been to set Worker's nephew up with an internship that would totally suck the life out of him and ruin his career path.

I would have done the EXACT same thing.

The Boy said...

I like the way allbilly thinks.

I could get him into some SEC troubles and maybe try and get him banned from the whole industry. Would you like me to look into that?
