Things Are Itchy At Deutsche Bank

From the front lines:

“Bed bug outbreak on the trading floor at 60 Wall. There were bed bug sniffing dogs in this past weekend and some cleaning was done in a few areas. Affected areas are being fumigated this weekend, but not the entire floor, just where they initially found the bugs. Everyone is still sitting in the same seats. People are pretty amazed they’re not actually going to treat the entire floor. Maybe they’ll give out free DB back scratchers.”

    maybe it's a diversion to distract us from the Fed report re: their financial reporting?

    Theres an escargot infestation on the BNP trading floor. Thankfully they have no traders.

    DB is really cutting costs huh? What a cheap ass move not bombing the entire floor. That should worry all DB employees about future cost cutting moves

    First they came for the bed bugs, but I said nothing, for I was not a bed bug

    Are the escargots wearing scarves?

    The bed bugs are the much more valuable employees because they persuaded the "hanger on's" to move on. If you see what I mean.

    Apparently all the fines depleted the 'bed bug' reserve fund
