Hard times in New York Town

Labradors, pool men and partners enjoying a sunny afternoon (wall painting, boudoir, the Hamptons)

The business lunch

I am very concerned about having no network, so I ask two partners at a (huge) corporate law firm for mentoring. My former boss from Europe introduces me.

Good thing = I get free lunch.

Bad things:

  • The partners (two women) are scary as hell. They look exactly like Valentino – maybe the orange liquid foundation has something to do with it.
  • They seem to love talking about things I don’t have a clue about. Mostly two subjects catch their attention: Labradors and pool men (sentence of the day: “the best decision I ever made was changing pool men”). I have nothing to say, so I just enjoy the show, noticing the dialogs are delightfully Tarentino-like.
