First Year #1: "Did you hear about the [big foreign bank] presentation yesterday?"
First Year #2: "No."
First Year #1: "This managing director is up in front of the podium answering a question about work-life balance someone asked, the junior guys are sitting in chairs on the stage behind him. Fifteen, maybe twenty seconds after the question one of the junior guys literally passes out and falls out of his chair onto the stage. They called the paramedics and everything. It was crazy."
First Year #2: "Is he ok?"
First Year #1: "Fine, apparently. Exhaustion. Just got off the plane from London, no sleep for a week because of a deal he was working. Right after the managing director just talked about how great the work-life balance is."
First Year #2: "They have a London office? Are they hiring for the London office?"
