It’s hardly any surprise that Gordon Gekko and Patrick Bateman were each conceived within roughly five years of each other.
A New York banker's spreadsheet candidly ranking women he was dating has gone viral after he accidently sent it to one of them.
David Merkur, 28, recorded details on the spreadsheet about each of the 12 women he was dating along with scores on how the relationship was progressing, using categories to rank their physical appearance, comments on the dates and their personalities.
He rated a woman's physical appearance on a scale between one and 10. The spreadsheet was colour-coded: blue indicated upcoming dates, orange meant "monitor closely" and bold signified "ASAP", or as soon as possible.
“Dave,” as he’s known, wrote things like “mixed bag of pictures, but great bod” and “OK girl, but very jappy; one and done for me)” for his reviews. In this case, Dave actually forwarded the spreadsheet to one of his dates — who then passed it along to her friends who later passed it along to , which published a highly censored version of the document.
It’s worth mentioning that more than one person from wildly different sectors of my personal life forwarded the document to me as well. No — I have no tight affiliation with the gentlemen of Wall Street.
