How to Work in a Bank

Had I known back then what I know now, this is how I would have negotiated and acted during meetings.  Would have been more productive:

Reminds me of a joke.
How does an accountant handle constipation?
He works it out with a pencil!

The trick is in addition to being an asshole, you have to pick your alliances very carefully. The Joker was free to do that because (a) he really was powerful enough to beat all the criminals, see (b) and (b) it was a movie.

In real life, weirdos never prosper. Sure you have to be a big swinging dick, but you also have to get everyone else behind you.

"If you're good at something - never do it for free."

The most important lesson my generation needs to learn from the Joker. That's why I'll NEVER accept an unpaid internship in a million years. Whenever a baby boomer offers me an "opportunity" for free, I laugh hysterically in their face.

They can call me entitled as much as they like, I won't hesitate to spit in their general direction. As far as I'm concerned, you're the entitled person by asking me to work for free.
