"Slice of life lessons"

Carta de resposta de Pam Watt, sucateira de Tunbridge Walls que vendeu o seu negocio de reciclagem por £6m, a John Hunt banqueiro da Goldman Sachs que se ofereceu para gerir o seu novo patrimonio:

"Thank you for your offer. The money you refer to is the product of years of hard work and taking risks. During those years banks were noticeable by their absence. I know you are mereley doing God's work, presumably the same God who showers us with tempest, flood and pestilence, but when we needed to raise capital you didn't seem to be around. Maybe we missed you. This money was made from graft and it belongs to industry. Maybe I'm being arrogant but we feel best placed to know where to invest it."
