UBS Intern Chose Wisely?

Things came down to hockey vs. UBS summer, and hockey won, which seems reasonable.

Hey [redacted at UBS],

I was on my way to the office this morning but I left my wallet with my ID in it at home. I am not going to be able to continue my internship with UBS this summer.

I have received a hockey opportunity that I need to devote 100% of my time too. With all of the training, skating, yoga, and spin classes that I do I would not be able to contribute as much time to UBS as I had originally hoped or that you would want out of me. I know you said you would be flexible, but these preparations consume most of my day 5 days a week and with the commute from home it would be impossible for me to give all the effort I want to both. I want to say a sincere thank you to you and your colleagues for helping me along the way and for the way you treated me yesterday. I am sorry that this is not going to be able to work out. Thank you again for everything.

Sincerely,
[redacted]

    Phil Falcone you old rapscallion you! Nicely done. We told you to go back to hockey.

    Seriously UBS thanks but no thanks, I would rather get slammed into the boards repeatedly by a bunch of guys than work for you. This shit doesn't go down at Club Gorman

    Luis Suarez is coming to bite all your dicks off.

    just saying….

    are they going to keep him on the books for the tier 6 night league at twin rinks?

  5. Anywhere but UBS says:

    Hiring hockey goons to make pitch books is probably not a good option anyway

    This is my Walter Mitty moment.

    Dollars to donuts this little princess is the son of UBS senior management or a huge client and they thanked him for the five bullshit days he put in at the office.

    A kid who mistakes the usage of too/to was working for UBS? Seems about right.

    That's a smooth segue in the first paragraph. Goes from "hey I'm going to be late" to "I'm never coming back" with only a period in between. I'd love to see the non sequiturs this guys connects together when he dumps a girlfriend.

    Is getting dumped for spin and yoga more humiliating than getting bailed out by the Swiss National Bank?

    Rumor has it the intern in question is Keith McCullough

    Did you know UBS is a factory for future NHL talent? Don't believe me? Look it up…

    This would have been a lot better if it just ended at the part before the cut.
