Top Lehman Banker Complains His Mama Never Told Him Life Could be Tough

With the post-bonus, "I deserve at least a million dollars more" complaining season fast approaching, our infantile Wall Street bankers have taken to honing their cry-baby skills on some unsuspecting victims - school teachers. Yeah you read that right.
The Telegraph is reporting that Skip McGee, who is the global head of investment banking at Barclays (and who was one of the key lieutenants who assisted Dick Fuld in sinking the Lehman ship) was bawling his eyeballs out over a remark his son's school teacher made. So what was her fault? It must have been pretty offensive to make a heartless banker cry, right? Umm, she had the temerity to call bankers "sleazeballs"! We can only imagine what Skip McGee went through on learning that little harsh truth. Our condolences to Mr. McGee, we know it is real tough waking up to reality.
Hugh "Skip" McGee, one of Wall Street's best-paid bankers, has launched an extraordinary attack on staff at his son's exclusive private school after a teacher allegedly claimed that all investment bankers are dishonest "sleazeballs". Mr Mcgee, who is Barclays Capital's global head of investment banking, penned a rambling five-page letter to the board of trustees of Houston's Kinkaid School, asking that the teacher and two other staff members be fired.
Kinkaid, is that your son's school's name? You can't be serious Mr. McGee!
In the letter, Mr McGee, who is alleged to have an eight-figure salary, claims that history teacher Leslie Lovett has a "leftist invective" which "is neither accurate nor part of the approved curriculum". The banker goes on to claim that the teacher told his son John Edward's 11th-grade class "that somehow both Lehman and Barclays made a bunch of money on the Lehman bankruptcy, and that all investment bankers were 'sleazeballs' and dishonest".
His son, apparently with "tears in his eyes" went on to defend his father, saying he had been "working around the clock trying to save 11,000 jobs and that she had absolutely no idea what she was talking about".
Wait a minute...his son is in 11th grade and was crying? Atta boy, we know he is going to make a hell of a banker like his cry baby daddy...sniff.
The banker was also angered because his son, quarterback in the school's American football team, was allegedly told he and his teammates were not allowed to dress up as cheerleaders to perform a song-and-dance skit at a pre-game rally.
And his son wants to dress up as a whats wrong with that? Maybe he just wants to show off his pretty tan legs.
Mr McGee now wants Ms Lovett, headmaster Donald North and upper school principal Michael Saltman, to be fired. "In our rush to be 'politically correct' we have become obsessed about pacifying even the most extreme of views – even if they are far from representative of the core values and character of Kinkaid families and alumni," he wrote.
Boo-hoo Mr. Skip McGee, didn't your mama tell you - life is tough?
