This year, level III, NYC

I am waiting for the bathroom in this massive line about 10 minutes before the start of the exam. There is this guy panicked out of his mind in line ahead of me who I noticed for the previous half hour had been rocking back and forth in the corner of the lobby murmering his notes back to himself from memory…a real whackjob.

Anyway, As I am standing in line with this guy in front of me he starts to sweat profusely and I can litterally hear this guys stomach rumbling…this is where he really freaks out. He starts pounding on the stall doors ( there were only 2) and, of course, no one is coming out so this ass clown drops his pants, hops up on the sink, and blows SH**T all over the sink! The most disgusting thing was the backspray all over this guy! He was COVERED in his own Sh**t. I am laughing my ass off but this guy didnt miss a beat, he rinses off his pants, throws his shirt in the trash and walks into the test wearing only his windbreaker and wet pants.

I could hardly stop laughing to myself a full half hour into the test…I knew then I was going to be alright because at least I didn’t just blow ass chunks all over the bathroom…priceless.

NYC this summer, I’ squirting lemon in my iced tea (for a little caffeine pick me up) right before I walk in to the exam center. Some of it squirts the wrong way, gets me in right in the eyes and I literally, can’t see a thing. I ask someone to help me get to the bathroom so I can rinse my eyes. I feel around for the sink, run the water and immerse my face in the sink, and to my horror, it’s full of sh**! I scramble to find a paper towel and the bin’s empty! At this point I go rummaging through the garbage in sheer hysterics to find anything to wipe my face, and to my relief I find a discarded shirt. I wipe my face as quickly as possible w/ the shirt, only to find I’m caking on more sh**, and now I can’t see again. I was totally confused until Cooper’s post put the pieces together for me. BTW I think I did ok in the morning session, afternoon was a little tough.

I want to become a recreational stock analyst of professional caliber.

So has this story every been verified?

“Visit the Water Cooler forum on Analyst Forum. It is the best forum.”
- Everyone

That story is priceless, however I doubt the 2nd story is true

it has to be true…its on the internet!

this is sad….

I remember laughing to tears when i first read that a couple of years ago.

I also read it aloud to my GF, thinking it was the funniest thing ever.

This is AF’s best post ever.

- Fran: You know, in Tibet, if they want something, do you know what they do? They give something away.
- Bernard: They do, do they? That must be why they're such a dominant global power.

The first one probably isn’t true. The second one definitely isn’t true. Funny nonetheless…

^bump

bc this story is priceless and should be stickied.

I guess the lesson is to bring a poop pan and a roll of toilet paper in your car in case the bathroom is too crowded?

I typically carried my pencils and BA II Plus to the testing center in this:

Just in case…

This story had me in tears (laughing) the first time I read it a few years ago. It should definitely be a sticky seeing as how every once in a while I like to read it if I am having a bad day and it is really a pain to find sometimes.

Yeah, but where is the Terminator shower post, that sh*t was legend.

Only one word can sum this up, EPIC!

I took an imodium, tomorrow morning another one. Just in case.

Bump, if only for awesomness.

Simple math.

Along with success comes a reputation for wisdom.

Wow…that’s it…wow.

I hope this is true LOL

This was one of the first posts I ever read on AF.  I knew I’d found a home.

You keep using that word.  I do not think it means what you think it means.

He means this.

“I have a morning ritual that I go through before every big exam. I call it “The Terminator”. First, I crouch down in the shower in the classic “naked terminator traveling through time” pose. With my eyes closed I crouch there for a minute, visualizing either Arnold or the guy from the second movie (not the chick in the third one because that one sucked) and I start to hum the terminator theme. Then I slowly rise to a standing position and open my eyes. It helps me to proceed to the exam as an emotionless, cyborg badass. The only problem is if the shower curtain sticks to my terminator leg. It ruins the fantasy. ”

Haha, that’s brilliant!

definitely something Barney Stinson would do if he was doing the CFA

Awesome

im dying of laughter - thank you guys haha

This is officially the funniest **** I have read all year!! am literally in tears! and everyone in the office around me thinks i am goin insane!!!

I’ve laughed at this every year since L1 at exam time since it always gets resurrected.  I can’t imagine it’s true, but it cracks me right up.

I’m surprised noone has resurrected the legend of qqqbee yet

EDIT:  I found it!  So I’ll be that guy - http://www.analystforum.com/forums/cfa-forums/cfa-level-ii-forum/91293703

qqqbee was overrated.  Never understood the hype.

Inducted into the AF Hall of Fame, class of ‘17

Bump.  Just because it’s awesome, even if it isn’t true.
