Citigroup’s tantrums on Park Avenue

Big trouble down at Park Avenue this week, as the New York Post discovered that Citigroup was about to spend $50 million on a new Corporate Jet.

Hundreds blogged, reported, commented and threw rocks at 399 Park Avenue, Citi's Head Office, until 24 hours later they announced the deal had been cancelled.

What they didn't say is that the bank had already signed the delivery note and paid the invoice.

Shouts of "f**k, f**k, f**k, F**K" could be heard throughout Manhattan as, in scenes eerily reminiscent of the recent US Airways river landing, the jet was just chucked into the Hudson River by senior members of the bank's staff.

Unfortunately, it means they now have to foot the bill for both the jet and the rescue operation. 

Whoops.
