Grotesque Goldman Sachs flu advice

Apparently Goldman Sachs advises its employees not to handle physical coins because of the possibility of flu contamination. They also ask that employees have "their drivers" open their car doors rather than doing it themselves. After all, everyone (or at least everyone who matters) has a driver, right? And of course it goes without saying that the driver's life is more expendable than the lives of the crooks who have looted the taxpayers and given themselves another year of record bonuses.





Having inoculated its employees with H1N1 vaccine dosages usurped from pregnant women and children, Goldman Sachs has increased its vigilance against the contagious virus by banning employee contact with spare change....The memo also advised employees to “resist the urge to open your own car door ; let your driver do it.”

Sounds like a good employer just looking out for the health and welfare of its most important asset.. its people. Looks like good business to me.

Door handles on cars might not be the problem. But good for them to have a driver to do things like manual exertion.

Wouldn't a gentry at every port make more sense?

So you believe the life of a Goldman Sachs trader is worth more than the life of his driver.

Glad we could clear that up.

I dont know if his life is worth more, but the traders skills are worth more to Goldman than door opening skills. A good trader could make you 100's or millions in profit. A door opener is just a business expense to protect your investment in the trader. Reality sucks, don't it?

Do you think it is any different than paying a man to be a Secret Service agent and take a bullet for el Presidente.

Maybe they will give you a cut of the savings if you recomend that. Seems like a good business move to me.

I wonder if the official travel policy calls for surrounding one self with "dark skinned natives" when swimming in the ocean to prevent "shark attacks"?

This can't be real, bankers have become the new punching bag for America...

I say let their helpers do everything for them, then when the great checks and balances comes into play we are ridden of yet another parasite that grows in the form of a human.

do they have helpers to lift the toilet seats too? So they don't get HIV? heh.

edited to imply I'm being sarcastic for the thinking impaired.

Makes me wonder if these guys even wipe their own asses

I think we should sneeze at every investment banker we can find, maybe we can cull a few from the herd.
