Banks Advising Employees To Avoid Flashy Hamptons Homes This Year, Vague About Whether Or Not Pulling A Kimball Is Okay

The Kimballer

So! A bunch of unnamed banks are supposedly telling their employees to ixnay on the assivemay amptonshay entalsray this summer. Let’s just say it’s Goldman Sachs that is doing the telling because a) they’ve been known to tell their people not go out during the day for fear of attracting scrutiny for existing and b) if The People are going to get their knickers in a twist over anyone’s big ass vacation houses it’s going to be those of Goldman Sachs.

Instead of said big ass vacation houses, those looking for places to get away for the weekend should instead consider shacks or outhouses less likely to provoke any ire. “That’s the message that’s being conveyed,” a human resources staffer at a Wall Street investment bank told the Post. “We have enough eyeballs on us already, [so] don’t do anything really extravagant right now that will attract any more.” Sort of bull shit that they should get to tell you what’s what but I think it’s going to be okay here! The bright side is that no one said anything about it not being okay to take a page from Goldman Sachs MD Richard Kimball’s playabook. For those that need a refresher for what that would entail, the read between the lines message is that you should feel free, nay encouraged to throw “topless pool parties” with a high ratio of girls to guys likely to enrage the neighbors. The password is “it’s a very small neighborhood.” You heard it here first.

    I know Shabby Chic. Give me a call.

    Good thinking guys. It is certainly better to get all that money and keep it in a bank account. Absolutely under no circumstances should wealthy bankers spend their windfall in the economy.

    That would send the way wrong message.

  4. Alright, listen up, people. Our banker has been out of the office for 4 hours. Average traffic speed in Long Island in the summer is 20 miles-per-hour. That gives us a radius of 80 miles. What I want from each and every one of you is a hard-target search of every beach house, cottage, pied-a-terre, retreat, bungalow and mansion in that area. Checkpoints go up at fifteen miles. Your banker’s name is Richard Kimble, MBA. Go get him.

    Cathy Fuld when the hell are you going to learn to stick to the subject at hand?

    What is real bonus? How do you define a real bonus? If you’re talking about what you can feel, what you can smell, what you can taste and see, then real is simply electrical signals interpreted by your brain.

    @8 did they explicitly say so? that’s what I thought.

  10. @8 – It’s OK if it’s done tastefully.

    i thought richard kimball was that guy from the fugitive???

  13. As long as the bankers avoid “small neighborhoods” when they hold their weekend bacchanalia, there should be no problem with nosy neighbors who squeal to Page Six.

    topless pool parties are sooo cool.

    But forget the movie stars and their Hampton hide-a-ways. We don’t want main stream America to find out our beloved Hollywood actors paychecks are cut from the books of TARP funded companies. Pretty easy for a movie studio to pay a celebrity $10 million a picture if the studio is funded by a company that just took $80 billion of tax payer funds!!

  18. that’s why we have countries in Europe only us rich people know about. A rarity in my circle to vacay @ Hamptons (we do 2 long weekend bashes max but that’s about it).

  19. Guest says:

    What is this “Hamptons” you speak of?

    – Guy who is never invited anywhere

    I used to work for Kimball. We actually did call him Dr. Richard Kimball, nothing new to him (especially since he’s a Healthcare guy so the doctor moniker works well). He’s actually a legit stud.

  21. guest says:

    it’s ok to vacay at hamptons, but only if you drive there while carpooling. single-driver bentleys and any two-seater cars, as well as helicopter rides are strictly no-no.
