Bank of america

  1. 1. Devin Warren Mr. Curtiss Journalism and business writing September 7, 2012 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. Carney, John. “Bank of America exec looses millions after court says you can’t moon your boss.” CNBC 6 September 2012. Late ed. Web
