Word is that seven financiers got drunk at a client dinner on Friday night and then got stuck in an elevator for hours.Two things stand out about this story:
One, apparently they started jumping up and down in an elevator until it broke.
And two, they had to “make do” with having no bathroom.
This is London says the seven men were stuck in the elevator for three hours, and there’s an investigation into whether or not they were jumping when it broke, because repairs are going to cost “hundreds of pounds.”
We’re a little suspicious about whether or not the jumping took place, because London is all about hating on bankers and making them seem as idiotic as possible these days.
But a source told the paper:
“A senior broker from BGC who took his clients out for dinner got stuck in a lift until 3am, after drunkenly jumping up and down. Red faces all round. It went round the City in no time and made us all laugh.”
We give them props for remaining calm enough to catch a snooze after screaming and pushing the emergency button didn’t bring a rescue.
