Welcome to the Systu-grp-events mailing list!
omg i am a second-year! omg, the mailing list ‘bot used that exclamation point on its own! it is as excited as i am! that i can haze!
and by haze i mean in precisely one year, i will guilt first-years into forwarding “for sale” emails to their class listserv for stuff that they all have already, after a year of living in chicago. hmm…this reeks of a moneymakingcurve opportunity… maybe i should start a secondary market, by buying off graduating, liquidating second-years and selling to incoming first-years. everyone wins!
“buy low, sell high”? i should make t-shirts of this, the punchline of every single portfolio manager’s speech on booth’s investment management treks and at conferences. the back could read: “i went to bschool and all i came away with was the obvious.”
there. i just saved you 170K in mba tuition and expenses, before opportunity costs.
can you pay me back by buying my “excellent condition, only two years of use, buyer must pick-up but i can’t help with dis-assembly because it is from IKEA and hence it was intended to be disposed not disassembled but i need every dollar i can get right now because i haven’t been paid in 22 months and i blew all my cash savings on cabs back from TNDC… and furthermore the instructions for dis-assembly are completely incomprehensible and impossible especially since i completed assembly with these seven extra screws and bolts that i keep in a plastic bag along with four hex screws acquired over the last eight years that do not fit that mess of screws and bolts just in case i sneeze too hard one day and everything collapses” furniture next year? hey, thx!
