Greatest Hits: Volume 21 (Just The Links)

Greatest Hits

Happy Sunday everyone!

Sometimes, this whole banking thing can be pretty easy.  So easy, that at the end of the week you silently ask yourself:

“What exactly am I getting paid so much money for again?”

Well, this wasn’t one of those weeks.

As a matter of fact, this was the kind of week when you know exactly why this job pays as much as it does – and start considering all kinds of non-traditional exit options.

And so, I’m going to keep this nice and short and get straight into the links.

Have a wonderful Sunday all.  I’m off to get some sleep.
