Debt

The London office of our law firm has a number of practice areas, and each has several groups within it. I am in Capital Markets, and my group is called Debt and Equity Capital Markets. The group mainly deals with the issuance of bonds and medium term notes and advises in respect of equity offerings. It is popularly known as DECM, or more simply, Debt.

A bunch of us joined the law firm together, and so our conversation often revolves around which practice area/group we have joined.

If one more person, just one more person, makes a “Are you in debt?” joke, I will stuff a Eurobond down their gullet.

primarily since i am one two continents and many oceans away from you and therefore you can't shove a eurobond down my anything:

"are you in debt?"

Sroyon, Sroyon! I just read your climbing post and there is this book you should read (if you haven't already) by Eric Newby called A Short Walk In The Hindu-Kush. I think you'll like it. :)

@Spin: I've read it, yes. :D Thanks.
One recommendation for another: A Walk in the Woods by Bill Bryson, (if you haven't already). I read it just last month.

So you tell me, Sroyonda, if someone making an "Are you in debt joke?" deserves a Eurobond stuffed down their gullet, what does someone who devotes an entire *blogpost* to people "suffering in insolvency", "being in labour", etc. deserve?

@Pratiti: You spotted the parallel! I can't tell you how happy that makes me. :)

I read a bit of it, didn't like it enough to continue. Like Bryson very much though.
