The hideous rumor that the opportunity for some legacy Merrill Lynchers to drunkenly grope each other in commemoration of JC and the Bank of America merger this year is apparently true, though it remains unclear as to why (and why the ruling was made so soon). Bank of America is presumably moving forward with its Ken Lewis Good-Bye Kegger.
It was Merrill Lynch Wealth Management that got told no holiday party yesterday. No memo-- they rounded us all up in a conference room to let us know.
Is your company stripping you of your right to interact with people you despise past the close of business this year, too? Let us know.
