Wall Street's most embarrassing emails
10. 'And that be us!!!!'
In late 2007, it appeared that the writing was on the Wall Street for venerable investment bank Lehman Brothers. Apparently, the only people who didn't see it were Lehman CEO Dick Fuld and his chief strategy officer, David Goldfarb. In this exchange about the i-bank's plight, Bear Stearns, and a potential white knight, the executives appear clueless. In addition, the pair of highly educated scions of Wall Street display an embarrassing tendency to use the exact same punctuation as a Girl Scout writing her daily diary entry.
'Any potential investor that would consider BS in the same breath as LB should go fungoo themselves!!!'
'I agree we need some help — but the Bros always wins!!'
'Absolutely, will and skill always win, and that be us!!!!'
