Bank of America executive moons boss
By Devin Warren
Back in 2005, Jason Selch, an executive at Bank of America, mooned his boss at a
meeting in Columbia because his friend was fired for not excepting less money. This took place
after a merger between Bank of America and Columbia Asset Management.
After Jason heard of his friend being fired he went to a meeting of his higher-ups in
Columbia to complain. Once there he threatened to quit and go work for another company
however they did not listen. After realizing the threat wouldn’t work Jason turned around, pulled
down his pants, and then left. However, even after mooning his bosses he was not fired. Instead
he was given an official warning until the CEO of Columbia Asset Management heard of the
mooning and demanded he be fired. If Jason had stayed with the company for a few more
months he would have received a multi million-dollar bonus. Jason did attempt to sue Bank of
America however, the court ruled in favor of the bank.
All you students out there who might be thinking I really just want to pull down my pants
and show my teacher what is up, there is nothing they can do to me. Just remember while you
might not lose millions of dollars there are still many punishments awaiting you. Including the
loss of a priceless ticket-your diploma.
