There's a great story, complete with picture, on valleywag.com. According to the website, a young intern working at Anglo Irish Bank's North American unit sent an e-mail to his boss this Halloween explaining that he wouldn't be in for a couple of days as 'something came up at home'. The next day the intern's boss was sent a photo of his young charge (which was already up on Facebook), dressed as a fairy (and looking slightly the worst for wear) at a party the night before.
Intern to boss: 'I just wanted to let you know that I will not be able to come into work tomorrow. Something came up at home and I had to go to New York this morning for the next couple of days. I apologize for the delayed notice'.
Boss to intern (the following morning): 'Thanks for letting us know - hope everything is OK in New York. (Cool wand)'.
According to Dealbreaker, the intern e-mail was forwarded on to them a number of times this week. Some of those who forwarded the mail on claimed that the intern worked at Bear Stearns, others mentioned Goldman Sachs, but most said Anglo Irish Bank.
