What Is Investment Banker for "Thank You?"

Penelope's investment banking brother takes another stab at guest blogging, this time discussing the various meanings of the acronym that once stood for "As Soon As Possible."

ASAP: a ubiquitous term coming from senior bankers. You might assume it means as fast as humanly possible, as in an all-nighter if necessary. But this is not always the case. For example, sometimes it seems asap is just a banker's best effort at using the word please. As in: Leave a printout on my chair asap.
