factoryconnection: I've seen on several occasions a guy driving a new S5 to deliver pizzas. I don't know how one could break even on gas, tires and insurance much less payments on one of those bad boys delivering pie. The new turbos are not easy on gas.I've also seen an S-class pulling similar duty, but only once.
Fark_Guy_Rob: Investment banking is incredibly cut-throat....if traders aren't making a profit they are shown the door. Profit and Loss is monitored in real time, daily, weekly, monthly, annually and so-on and so-forth.Unlike most jobs in most sectors, traders can me accurately and objectively measured, down to the penny. I've worked plenty of jobs in generic office buildings where some guy with 20 years of experience didn't do any work, but showed up on time and couldn't really be fired unless he did something horribly wrong. So they kept him on. That can still happen in financial services companies, but not among traders.
