Robert Benmosche Was Less Than Thrilled About Post-Crisis Restrictions On Corporate Jet Usage

After the Great Auto CEO Debacle of 2008, the government had put its foot down on private-jet use by CEOs of TARP-supported companies, and when these onerous restrictions threatened to thwart his ability to make his granddaughter’s birthday party in Chicago, he exploded. “I said to Jim, ‘Here is the deal,’ ” he recalls. “ ‘I’m going to go and see my granddaughter, and I’m going to take that plane and shove it up your fucking ass. And everyone else’s ass. You are going to break my banana over this shit?’ ” [NYM]

    Robert, do you notice you're always talking about sticking something in my ass, and that time it wasn't even a threat, technically, that was *flirting*.

  2. UBS Fruit Quant says:

    It takes some big grapefruits to bust your banana over this, had these restrictions occurred at Apple the response would probably be to "suck a lemon".

    When you say everyone else's…..?
