The Goldman Sachs Unofficial Guide To Being A Man, Makes Us Laugh And Cry

Posted: Updated:

Just when we thought wanker bankers couldn't get any further up our noses, CNBC.com's John Carney and Goldman Sachs parody Twitter account @GSElevator collaborated to create a list of unofficial rules for modern men to live by.

And while it is making us laugh (a lot) in an eye-rolling-I-know-so-many-wanker-bankers-like-this kind of way, it also left us feeling kind of... well, deflated.

The idea of dating one of these morons makes the single ladies on our team wretch - a cold reminder of how many twats are out there and how laborious it is to weed them out one-by-one.

Here are some oh-too-familiar attitudes of men in today's market, to remind you what you're up against...

  • Time is too short to do your own laundry. 

  • When in doubt, always kiss the girl.
  • Do 50 push-ups, sit-ups, and dips before you shower each morning. 

  • Pretty women who are unaccompanied want you to talk to them.
  • Desserts are for women. Order one and pretend you don’t mind that she’s eating yours.

  • Buy a tuxedo before you are thirty. Stay that size.

  • One girlfriend at a time is probably enough.

  • Buy expensive sunglasses. Superficial? Yes, but so are the women judging you. And it tells these women you appreciate nice things and are responsible enough not to lose them.
