    LL Bean Boots will solve all your winter problems, particularly the Gore-Tex lined ones.

    Too bad they are ugly as shit, look bad with a suit, and everybody and their mother has the same pair.

    Like who? The assholes who are legally SUPPOSED to do it? The young kids of the neighborhood? Yeah right, those entitled bastards doing it? That's funny.

    I have a housekeeper who comes once a week to clean so if there is snow and I'm too lazy then I'll just pay extra for her to do it if she wants.

    Well, my building pays somebody to do in front of our condo building, but he's not going to do two whole blocks worth.

    whenever so much as a flake falls on my street, a crew of illegals comes through, typically at 6 am, and rings the doorbell repeatedly, like a kid playing a prank. Ding-dongDing-dongDing-dongDing-dongDing-dongDing-dongDing-dongDing-dong! Then, when you don't immediately get the door, they do it again, just to make sure they've woken everyone up. Ding-dongDing-dongDing-dongDing-dongDing-dongDing-dongDing-dongDing-dong!

    I've never hired them, needless to say, so no doubt they are doing this to me as a kind of extortion/punishment.

    To the extent blatant "racism, sexism, bigotry, and general alpha one upmanship" are present, they are more than likely self-sware jabs at entrenched cliches. Late at night, male analysts and associates might crack jokes about sex and women, but my impression has never been it is meant in earnest, and it is not the same as substantively treating female co-workers poorly.

    Afterall, most of the big investments banks have a ton of women on the floor, even if not so much at the senior level.

    Maybe they've taken umbrage at being referred to as "illegals".

    I think if you shoot one, the rest will get the message.

    Place "No Trespassing" signs then simply shoot them.


    Do you feel they have been monitoring M's thoughts and/or conversations?

    I'm inclined to believe the women on the floor or as analysts/associates who have told me. You're welcome to believe what you wish, whether your own observations or that of others.

    I work in a male heavy field and see some of that come behavior come out even among the less "alpha" of co-workers or clients :roma:

    Back to NYC sucking. My Bean Boots get quite dirty in the salty sludge we have to trudge through #firstworldproblems

    Right, because it's very important to maintain The Narrative.

    "No human being can be 'illegal'!"
