According to a new study, the results of which are somewhat suspect, among the seventy-two percent of bankers who’ve supposedly had an affair, 63 percent of the males “said that they were convinced their wives knew about their affairs,” versus 3% of female bankers who said the same of their husbands. Here are a few other details respondents got off their chests:

87% of affairs involve a work colleague

26% of male bankers had had an affair with their PA / secretary

24% said that they ‘played away’ because their wife now reminded them more of their mother

4% said that they did it in the hope of getting caught

63% of male bankers said that they were convinced their wives knew about their affairs, but said nothing for the sake of the relationship

Just 3% of female bankers said that they were convinced their husbands knew about their affairs

41% said that they weren’t looking for an affair (it just happened)

13% confirmed that they had had an affair with their immediate boss

    4% wanted to get caught? Makes as much sense as rigging your grades and going to Nevada-Reno.

    … and with that background information, given your gender, physical attributes, and likely pay grade, calculate the probability to 4 decimal places that you will get laid within your first year of work.

    “The average period between female banker affairs is 5 years 4 months”
    Thats a lot of tampons.

    I wonder if it was the same immediate boss having affairs with 13% of bankers.

    Bankers. Does this include tellers and cs reps at my local HSBC?

     98% said they would never have an affair with someone at UBS

    Much easier for a woman to carry on an affair without her spouse catching on — fewer performance issues at home. A 40-y.o. male who has just had the afternoon of his life is much more likely to get found out that evening at home, whereas the 40-y.o. woman can just lie back and think of England…

    “Lie back and think of England” is an English saying with roughly the same meaning as “grit one’s teeth”

    Hopefully one female banker responded that she was considering an affair and was “Pre-Menstral Constantly.”

    So just to summarize:
    97% of female bankers are delusional and think men are idiots
    63% of male bankers are assholes
    26% of male bankers work on the roof of 85 Broad
     
    Sounds about right.

    No one, or at least no one with a brain, considering DB regularly breaks news ahead of the MSM, etc.

    … and 76% of respondents said that they ‘played away’ because their wife didn’t remind them enough of their mother.

    You know what? That strikes me as quite odd.  But, you can’t argue with statistics, right?
