Amit Chatwani has just penned Damn, It Feels Good To Be A Banker: And Other Baller Things You Only Get To Say If You Work On Wall Street (Hyperion), a satirized look at the finance industry and its players, which hits shelves tomorrow (Aug 5).
Chatwani lived with six bankers during his college days and can spot a Wall Street wonder anywhere, especially in New York City.
He says a true ballin banker is completely pedigree, and has the best education, clothes, and firm.
They wear Ferragamo loafers with no socks and incorporate their banker slang into everyday conversation, like sizing up a chick by comparing her stocks and assets.
Bankers are also cocky because theyre young and overpaid, and flaunt their cash when theyre out at nightclubs.
Chatwani explains, Theyre the first ones to order bottle service. They work like 100 hours a week, so when they go out, they wanna roll like Kanye [West].
He says bankers have a work hard, ball hard mentality, where, in his words, They kick ūss at work AND kick ūss at the club!
