The Best Banking Intern E-Mail EVAR

Click here for full story

Spare a thought for the 21-year-old Citigroup intern who has a placement in the company's Real Estate Equity Group in London, and whose birthday invite to her friends found it's way onto the internet and has done the rounds at investment banks all around the world. We at Here Is The City received a number of copies of the e-mail. We have confirmed it is authentic.

advertisment
We're still not sure whether this e-mail was meant tongue-in-cheek, so we shouldn't be too hard on the young lady concerned. It has created quite a stir, though, and is another example of why staff (even interns) need to think carefully before they put anything out on e-mail. When the fuss dies down, we think Citigroup should offer the intern a job. Whether the e-mail was meant in jest or not, we like her style. She's a hire!

Here's the mail:

'21st Birthday Party at The Ritz Hotel London

Friday, 18th of August

9pm Champagne Reception
10pm Photo Shoots
10.30pm Blowing Candles

Mid-night Pangaea, Mayfair

I have arranged the Ritz to host a Champagne Reception with a selection of Ritz Champagne for all my guests, this will be on me so please come and indulge.

A specially made birthday cake has also been ordered and the Ritz waiters will kindly serve you each a generous slice with Ritz cutleries, etc....also on me.
INSTRUCTIONS FOR ENTRY

*When you arrive, take the Hotel entry on the opposite side of the Green Park tube station (Please refer to your arrival time at the end of this email)

*When asked "how can I help you Sir/Madam ?", you reply "I am here for ****'s Birthday Party at the Rivoli Bar"

*You will be escorted to the lounge area next to the Rivoli bar, where you will hopefully see a gorgeous group of ladies.

If you experience any issues getting in or getting to the Ritz, please call my mobile on **** *** *** and my PA Ms *** will kindly deal with your queries between 8.30pm to 10pm.

STRICT DRESS CODE:

Gentlemen: Jacket, shirt, and please also bring a tie (no jeans, trainers, flip-flops, polo-shirts)

Ladies: skirt/top, cocktail dress (no denim, mini-skirts, flip-flops, bad tastes)

Advise 1: It goes without saying that the more upper-class you dress, the less likely you shall be denied entry.

Advise 2: Photos will be taken between 10pm and 10.30pm, and these will be distributed when processed, therefore you may want to be well-groomed!
(wink)

Finally...
I will be accepting cards and small gifts between 9pm and 11pm... (wink wink) hehehe

I very much look forward to seeing you all at the Ritz this Friday.

ARRIVAL TIMES (Please stick to these as best you can, thank you)
9pm: (list of 9 names)

9.15pm: (list of 9 names)

9.30pm: (list of 11 names)

9.45pm: (list of 4 names)

10pm: (list of 6 names)'.

Finally, it's not just a Citigroup intern who has made the news. According to The New York Observer, a Lehman Brothers intern had quite a time of it at the firm. 'On my floor, there were two interns', he said. 'So the VP proposed a hot-dog eating contest. So the challenge was to eat 15 dirty-water dogs in 20 minutes and to hold it down for an hour. There were lots of bets placed and taken. We stood to make about $200 each if we succeeded. After about 10 hot dogs, the other intern started looking sick and ran off to the bathroom. I managed to finish and regretted it for the rest of the day. So disgusting. But at least I got the cash'. That intern should go far!! Another definite hire.


LMFAO!!

Initially distributed by my good friend Olek, this email has spread around the internet within about 24 hours. Please spread it between any forums you can.

Oh and her name etc has been blanked out.
Her name is Lucy Gao: http://www.timesonline.co.uk/article...0-2327707.html

And a response email which has also been leaked:

Hi Fellow Citigroup Interns,

Just to clear a few things up, now that it is seriously getting out of
control, it was suppose to be an internal joke between me and a couple
of my guests (Yeah right! - Seft) to my 21st Party. The actual party was great, and nothing
like it so please do not worry. I should not have used my Citigroup
email account in the first place so I apologise for that.

I am sorry if you found the content of the invitation details offensive
and I am glad to entertain. But please stop now because it is getting
really unprofessional and unnecessary, and a lot of you know me anyway
and have heard about this so I apologise for repeating this again, but
hopefully for the final time.

Cheers everyone and have a great time this evening.
See you soon.

Lucy

Heh. Already heard that. A guy on the other forum I go to has seen them, apparently she's cute. This is what he said:

Quote:
I'm assuming I am the only person who feels a bit sorry for this posho.

Anyway the e-mail I got had photos of the party - she was kinda cute in a posho kind of way.
Heh. A couple of guys on the other forum have tried ringing her, but her voicemail's full! I've forwarded her number onto my old telesales buddies too; they love a good wind-up.

Edit: Pictures, more to follow.
