Bill Gross's Neighbor Would've Sent Him To Boot Camp, Spared Him Humiliation Of Public Firing


Bill Gross said he was fired from Pacific Investment Management Co., the first time he has publicly stated that he was dismissed from the firm he co-founded in 1971...Gross said he visited a neighbor, a retired air force general, after his exit from Pimco. As he was leaving, the retired general said Gross should have visited six months earlier because he could have taught him the first rule of the military. “I said, ‘what’s that?’ and he said: ‘watch your back,’” Gross said.
