Won't Someone Think of the Wall Street Bankers' Girlfriends?

You know the economy is bad when Wall Street banker's girlfriends are complaining about their lives. Here's a day-in-the-life of members of Dating a Banker Anonymous:

They shared their sad stories the other night at an informal gathering of Dating a Banker Anonymous, a support group founded in November to help women cope with the inevitable relationship fallout from, say, the collapse of Lehman Brothers or the Dow’s shedding 777 points in a single day, as it did on Sept. 29.

In addition to meeting once or twice weekly for brunch or drinks at a bar or restaurant, the group has a blog, billed as “free from the scrutiny of feminists,” that invites women to join “if your monthly Bergdorf’s allowance has been halved and bottle service has all but disappeared from your life.”

Ok, I really read the blog and realize that they really are just poking fun at their "expenses". It's actually kind of funny when you think about it.

I have $18 to my name, and no hope of any income (I was turned down for an unemployment extension.) I am terrified, and personally don't give a rat's ass if they are watching their poor little rich boys (and girls) suffer. It's partly their ******* fault that the economy is crap.

Some of us are just trying to survive. There should be a ban on this drivel...on the web and in the papers. (BTW, New York Times...shame on you for covering this crap!)

I was pretty sure I was going to be disgusted, but I read the whole article and found myself actually pitying these women. It must be very difficult to see the person you love suffer and stress out. While yes, the blog is pretty ridiculous, the article assures that it's supposed to be a tongue and cheek farce. Still... I suppose it takes all kinds, doesn't it?
