Worse than divorce

“This is worse than a divorce. I’ve lost half my net worth and I still have a wife,” said one shell-shocked share trader at the end of the worst day on the stock market for twenty years.



This line came in to me from the US via yahoo messenger at about 3pm on Friday afternoon, allegedly voiced by a named Canadian chemicals trader. By 4pm it had been messaged in to other colleagues in London from ICIS Houston, apparently said by a Houston trader.

And on Saturday morning, here it is in the Times, supposedly heard from the lips of a London share-trader.

Well whoever made it up, it’s a good line.
