Lucy Gao doesn’t need a p.a. she needs an enema!

Say hello to London’s most anal-retentive 21-year-old.Sorority Snob! Please note we have no way of knowing if Lucy Gao attended a sorority, or even school

via Gawker and the Times:

LUCY GAO, wherever you are, call. No one is angry. We’re just all laughing at you. She is a young — oh, is she young — intern at Citigroup who has enlivened the dog days of August in the City.

Her stupid e-mail, detailing the plans for her 21st birthday party last Friday, is doing the rounds of City banks, with appropriately derisive comments. Lucy is something of a control freak, and her friends are instructed to arrive in groups at properly staggered 15-minute intervals to ensure sufficient face time with the princess.

They are given a strict script to adhere to on arrival. “When asked, how can I help you Sir/Madam, you reply, I am here for Lucy’s birthday party at the Rivoli Bar.” Dress smart — “the more upper-class you dress, the less likely you shall be denied entry”.

SnobAny queries to her PA. This 21-year-old has a PA? Very Paris Hilton. I ring Citigroup to see whether Lucy is now an ex-intern. “She hasn’t done anything wrong. It’s just . . .” The spokeswoman tails off. How about being a silly, spoilt, stuck-up, overly rich ninny? “She has everyone’s sympathy.”

Lucy’s mobile, needless to say, is switched off.

Continued, at length, here for the pic and here for the email, the vast number of forwardings, and the even vaster number of put-downs by fellow Oxonians. She’s going to have to finish school at UCal Bakersfield or something after this.

    That is chillingly rational social co-ordination. If I manage to provide the correct time and address to more than 50% of the invitees I feel like the heir apparent to Martha Stewart.

    ON SATURDAY I RECEIVED A LETTER FROM CITIGROUP THANKING ME FOR MY FIVE YEARS OF SERVICE YET THEY JUST EXPLAINED TO THE DFEH WHY THEY FIRED ME
    PLEASE HELP US GET TO THE TRUTH
    GETTTING THIS LETTER WAS VERY DISTURBING SINCE I FEEL I WAS WRONGFULLY TERMINATED
    I HAD NO PLANS TO LEAVE CITIBANK IN CARMEL
    THE LETTER EVEN STATES TO ANOTHER 5 YEARS BUT THEY FIRED ME!!!!!
    A FEW DAYS LATER I RECEIVE ANOTHER LETTER CONFIRMING THAT I WAS FIRED!
    HOW MESSED UP IS CITIGROUP??

    Subject: IS IT LEGAL TO LIE TO THE DFEH & US DEPT OF LABOR? CITIGROUP DID & THEY LIE TO CLIENTS IN CARMEL PLEASE READ THIS LETTER SENT TO THE MONTEREY HERALD
    The Monterey County Herald
    Attn: Herald Executive Editor, Carolina Garcia
    Monterey, CA 93940
    cgarcia@montereyherald.com
    (831) 646-4306
    Ms. Garcia,
    I have attempted through several sources to clarify my
    position regarding my unfair treatment by my previous
    employer, Citibank. I had no previous plans to leave
    my position as Head Teller at the Citibank branch in
    Carmel. After 4 years of employment with the company,
    the unfair and unequal treatment of employees led to
    medically supervised work-related stress. The manager
    of the branch then accused me of job abandonment which
    led to my termination via UPS delivery on December 15,
    2005, while I was at home on medical leave.

    Subsequent to my termination, I received numerous
    correspondences that referenced me as terminated, no
    longer with the company, and as a former employee. My
    401K and pension have both been forwarded to me.
    However, when interviewed by the Department of Fair
    Employment and Housing, Citibank representatives
    reported that I was terminated due to not personally
    reporting my absence, but rather having medical
    documentation reported by my physician. When
    interviewed by the U. S. Department Wage and Hours
    Division, Citibank representatives reported on August
    8, 2006, that I was still an employee of the company
    and that a letter indicating such would be forwarded
    to me. To date, this letter has not been received.

    I have continued to be in contact with several clients
    that have stated that Citibank representatives
    indicated that I was either on vacation, or that I
    voluntarily resigned in order to work with my husband
    in his new business. This is absolutely untrue. It was
    my intention to continue my employment as the benefits
    were extremely important to me, as well as to my
    family.

    Clearly, there has been a gross misrepresentation by
    Citibank, either to its clients or to the U. S.
    Department Wage and Hours Division. It is my position
    that I was unfairly terminated by Citibank. The
    unscrupulous behavior of Citibank and its
    representatives, locally and at the corporate level,
    is unacceptable.

    It is also my opinion that if a corporation as large
    as Citibank is representing itself on a local level,
    the local management and staff should act accordingly.
    A large part of the attraction of the Monterey area is
    the sense of community that is felt here on a day to
    day basis. If Citibank is allowed to misrepresent its
    actions to clients and government agencies, where will
    the corporate takeover end?
    SINCERELY

    SENT TO–DCSbears…

    I whole heartedly understand you delemma, and my heart goes
    out to you.
    a few years back, I worked for citibank/corp. for one full year.
    It was without doubt the worst job, and the worst nightmare I have
    ever lived. The treatment of employees was abominable, among many
    other things. .
    I worked with people that had been there for years. They were not treated
    any better, than I was.
    I quit in the middle of the day. I sat in my car for a good twenty minutes
    breathing in what was for me, the most fresh air I had in one year.
    In the following year, at least six people I had worked with, and had been there
    for years, were let go, with the very worst excuses ever. Of course the lost all
    benifits, and retirments.
    Needless to say, I have never again banked with them, or used one of their credit
    cards, or have done any other business with them, whatsoever, and when asked I inform orher companies why.
    I have always…and to this day, informed everyone within earshot, of that disgusting thing, know as “citibank/corp.
    I am sorry they got you. I hope you get them.

    FROM AOL BLOG THANK YOU FOR YOU THOUGHTS
    CITIBANK FIRES ME FOR NOT “FOLLOWING POLICY ”
    YET THEY DIDN’T FOLLOW THEIR OWN POLICY CITIBANK IS UN FAIR AND UNEQUAL TREATMENT OF EMPLOYEES
    WHAT KIND OF MAN FIRES YOU WHILE YOU ARE ILL KNOWING THAT YOU HAVE WORK RELATED STRESS AND YOUR BLOOD PRESSURE IS UP?
    HOW HEARTLESS IS THIS CITIBANK MANAGER WHO COULDN’T WAIT FOR ME TO GET WELL?
    CITIBANK MADE THE LIST OF THE 100 BEST COMPANIES FOR WORKING MOTHERS BUT AS I WAS ATTEMPTING TO PUT MY DAUGHTER FIRST THEY FIRED ME!!!
    I WASN’T GIVEN AN EXIT INTERVIEW NOR WERE MY KEYS ASK FOR BUT THAT IS THEIR POLICY! HE DIDN’T EVEN HAVE MY FINAL PAYCHECK WITH MY LETTER OF TERMINATION AND THEY DEPOSITED IT INTO MY ACCOUNT WHICH IS NOT CALIF CODE
    THE FOLLOWING IS FROM SOMEONE ON LINE
    My heart goes out for you, just know that things happen for a resound and what go around must come around!! I myself am having my own issue with Citibank!!! I was approved for a lone and used my car as collateral which later I contacted them to hand me over the Title for renewal and it?s been now 3 ½ months I have been waiting for it and now have to deal with my vehicle parked without insurance and Citibank?s excuse is that Motor Vehicle can not locate my title and the most frustrating thing is that all the time I call I must have gave my # over 20 times and never get a call back regarding the status of my situation I would have to repeat myself all over again to a new rep??.How frustrating!!! Well that is the story of life??????Drama??????.Good Luck.
    To OCC office

    THank you for your reply and for requesting information form Citibank. Citibank states that I was fired for not following policy but yet they didn’t follow their own policy and guide lines nor were they equal and fair in how they treated each employee.

    Citibank states that I was fired for not calling in, but I did have my doctor call in at the end of my doctors appointment on 12/12/05 and my doctor also faxed on a note. Contact was made with the bank. My doctor called in to protect my health.
    I have copies of some of Citibank policy which are in the employee hand book and from what I have read Citibank and the manager didn’t follow proper procedure. Before firing they are to consider your work performance and take that into consideration and my reviews were very good. I never got a verbal warning just written up and the write up was not correct with errors. Citibank gives an exit interview which I didn’t get nor was I asked to send in my keys.
    Citibank sent me my Cobra papers and never offered me FMLA, when they find put that I was applying for disability or that I was disabled they reinstated my benefits and made them retro to 01/01/06 WHY BECAUSE THEY MESSED UP
    Citibank then sends me a check for about six weeks worth of pay with no deductions for benefits then all of a sudden they start deducting for medical and dental and now I have to pay for these benefits out of my pocket
    Many if Citibank clients have told me they have been told that I left to work for my husband or that I am on vacation.
    Lisa Austin of Citigroup mentioned that when I go back to work they would set up payments for some of these benefits but she couldn’t explain how this would happened after I explained that I had been fired. Is Citibank going to fire me again via UPS when my doctor feels that I am well enough to look for work?
    Citibank didn’t; follow policy to the tee and fires me for not following policy to the tee but had no heart about me being ill and my doctor helping me out.
    Citibank made the list of the best 100 companies for working mother to work at but as I try to put my daughter first they started harassing me with abandonment and corrective action.
    My seniority didn’t matter to them.
    Ronon at the US Dept of labor, wage and hour division ( 1-415-744-5590 ext 226 ) was told by Citigroup attorney that I was still employed and they would send a letter to explain but the letter never came.
    Citibank fired me while in the middle of a workers comp pending case.
    Ann at the DFEH ( 1-408-277-1916 ) was lied to by Jeff Ursino and Kathleen Munoz, they explain to the DFEH how and why they fired me.
    Again Citibank violated state labor codes and more.
    Employees which are unethical are still working there and I get fired for having my doctor call in, these employees broke company policy and still have jobs.
    Citibank recently sent me a letter thanking me for my five years of service and it states looking forward to another five years but I was fired on 12/13/05 a few days later a get another letter stating that yes I had been terminated and the stocks that were issued to me for being a good employee had been taken back due to an error in their system. I believe the only error is that I was wrongfully terminated and Citibank is back tracking trying to cover up their mistakes.
    My pension and 401k have been sent to me due to termination and then I get the letter saying looking forward to another five years.
    Jeff Ursino knew that the tellers were cooking the books and none of them were written up or fired. Kathleen was refunding her daughter money and having Citibank pay for her overdrafts and she still has a job and Jeff knew about this. Unfair unequal treatment of employees.
    Why did it take Citibank a few weeks to give me a clear reason as to why I was fired? Why was my final check deposited into my account, why was I fired via UPS, Why was my final check not ordered until 12/14/05? Why did Chrys Smith call workers comp on 12/14/05 to see if my case was going to be denied but yet didn’t bother telling them that they had already fired me? This is violation of code 132A.
    Why doesn’t the staff at Citibank in Carmel simply say “she is no longer with us” instead of all the lies?
    Why was Citibank so strict with me and the policy and yet not the other employees?
    Why was it ok for Andrea to change her schedule but not me and I had the seniority over her?
    Citibank told the Office of Thrift Supervision that they were dealing with it internally and the office asked them to send me a letter of explanation yet they never did.
    How many other state codes have they ignored and violated?
    Jeff Ursino states that he was calling to see if I was coming in yet he returns to me the faxed in note by my doctor with my letter of termination which clearly stated that I would be out for a few more days? Jeff knew I wasn’t coming in he just fired me because I wanted to communicate via email to protect my blood pressure and stress level. Is it against the law to protect yourself? They wamt to hold me to the letter of theit policy but don’t follow their policy or state codes to the letter of policy.

  6. Thank you for all the comments, good, bad and indifferent.For those of you whom I upset I am very sorry. It has now been about a year and things are moving along, yes I have had some, alot of therapy, this hit me hard but we are moving on. I have 2 attorneys dealing with this. I admitt that I had alot to learn and I have learned that we really don’t matter to corporate America it really is just about profits. My fight is not just for me but for all those wrongfully treated by corporate America. I didn’t realize that all caps was so offensive, sorry to that one. Life is all about learning and this was a very hard lesson for us. Again, sorry if I offended anyone I am getting better now. As far as the manager goes, he will just have to live with what he has done and I wish him and his family the best hoping that no one ever treats them as he did us. God Bless Us All

  7. You do indeed need to be moving on. Hijacking a several months old thread on a completely unrelated issue is not a great indication of progress in that regard.

    Court date is coming up on June 14,2007
    All signatures will be forwarded to Senator Barbara Boxer
    Why does Citibank lie to clients about firing me? They have told their clients that I left to work for my husband, that I am on vacation, that I don’t work Saturdays, anything but the truth. They even lied about me calling in sick yet my time card proves I was there and my time card was approved by the supervisor.
    Please help us, how does the little guy fight Corrupt American Companies?
    Working mother and Citibank ethics
    Working mother at Citibank, how did they make the list of the “Best 100 Companies for Working Mothers? Fired for putting daughters needs first? Fired via UPS, 12 days before Christmas?
    Please forward to anyone that could help us, thanks.
    Keep this story going so we can get help. Tell a friend to tell a friend, how else can the little guy fight corporate America?
    Please help us if you can along with the Senator, this letter was sent to the Senator:
    To: Senator Barbara Boxer, Feb. 18, 2007
    Also: Jason J Chan,
    1700 Montgomery Street, Suite 240
    San Francisco, Ca.94111
    Regarding your letter of February 5, 2007, thank you. You state that you will submit a formal inquiry to the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) and that this may take up to 4-5 weeks. In that case I have taken the liberty to put together this binder as to hopefully speed up the process or maybe just so you have it to review.
    In this binder I can show the Jeff Ursino was not fair and equal to all the employees and although others violated policy I am the only one he fired. Citibank did not follow their own policy much less that of the Ca. Labor laws and codes.
    I don’t believe that Citibank has been honest with their clients as well as the DFEH and DOL.
    Citibank did not submit a new statement regarding 11/15/05 to the DFEH and seem to stand behind their “ bad Information”. I worked the day they state I called in and supposedly stated that I would be out the rest of the week, not true. What else is branch 915, Jeff Ursino, Kathleen Munoz and their corporate attorneys in New York willing to lie about?
    Please help us get to the truth about why Jeff really fired me. Why does Citibank stand behind Jeff and his lies and much more? The teller that left about $10,000.00 out is still working their and to my knowledge was not written up and yet this was worse for the bank than me just wanting to care for my daughter and having my doctor call in for me.
    Jeff made error after error with the write ups and the firing procedure of Citibank. Why did Jeff Ursino and Citibank feel I wasn’t worthy of an exit interview? Why was I fired at home and not at my place of work? Why was I not given a verbal or informal warning as is Citibank policy?
    Please go through or have someone review my notes and proof of their dishonesty. Please help us and all those wrongfully terminated by corporate America.. It is time for Corporate America ethics Reform. Senator Boxer if I had been a bad employee I would have just walked away but I wasn’t. I have letters from clients that truly appreciated me and my work and even Citibank has acknowledge that I was great for the Carmel branch, so why fire me and throw me out like yesterdays trash? Because Jeff Ursino just didn’t like me and was out to fire me from the moment he threaten me with job abandonment before I had ever missed a Saturday. Why? As I told Dr. Lowell and all the other doctors I have seen, “this just doesn’t make sense!” I have spent the past 14 months fighting for my rights, please help me and my family, we need more moms like me that want to be their for their children and teenagers are children.
    I look forward to hearing from you, thank you so very much for writing back or at least someone from your office, thanks Jason J. Chan.

CITIBANK WILL BE SENDING IN A “NEW’ RESPONSE DUE TO NOT DOING THE INVESTIGATION THOROUGHLY THE FIRST TIME. SO WHAT ELSE ARE THEY NOT DOING THOROUGHLY OR ETHICALLY?
    THANK YOU
    As of 2007 they never submitted the correct information
    A BETTER EXPLANATION Mother fired by Citibank for no good reason
    I am searching for an Employment Attorney willing to work on a contingency basis. I was fired while I was out sick, the managers states in a note added to my personnel file that he had called me to see if I would be coming into work on Dec. 13th but yet with my letter of termination he returned to me the faxed in doctors note, faxed in at 3:44p.m. on 12/12/05 by my doctor, which clearly stated that I would be out from 12/12-12/16/05. He sent me my letter of termination thru UPS, which arrive on 12/15/05. The manager knew that I was out on work related stress and I had a workers comp case pending. The manager states that I was fired for not complying with my warning and I asked how I could comply if I wasn’t there to comply so then I get a letter from HR stating that I was fired for failure to follow the call in process but my doctor had called in for me on the 12th due to my stress level and blood pressure. The doctor had spoken to the supervisor on the 12th so they were aware that I wouldn’t be in on the 13th and my doctor has the notes on my file that she had made a call in for me. Citibank did not follow their own procedures when they fired me. The EEOC has given me the right to sue and the letter arrived on 2/17/06 so my 90 days have started. The DFEH has also launched their own investigation which Citibank received notice on 1/23/06 and should be responding to the notice any day now, (as of 3/8/06they haven’t responded). I had an outstanding performance history with the bank; I had worked there for 4 years 2 months 6 days. I was the head teller one of the notary and the only Spanish-speaking teller. I have at least 40 letters of support from Citibank clients and I can prove that the manager was not equal with all the employees and although he was aware of the teller cooking the books under the direction of the supervisor none of them were put on corrective action yet I was written up for missing my first Saturday and then again when I missed my 2nd Saturday although I had a doctors note to be out of work due to my blood pressure and stress brought on by the manage and the unfairness in treatment. I had been threaten with job abandonment but at that time I hadn’t missed any work long enough to be accused for this. Citibank violated code 132A of the worker comp law and I do have an attorney for that but they are unable to deal with all the other issues. I have a strong feeling that the manager never told HR that my doctor had called in for me nor did he share my doctors note with them, he is to get approval from HR before firing me yet fired me by 4:30 pm or so, I had also emailed him that day at 1:45 pm and explained that my doctor had spoken to the supervisor and faxed in a note, again he was aware that I wouldn’t be in. The manager had called my cell phone and left a message at about 10:25 am, he states that he called because I hadn’t called in a half an hour prior to my shift, which started at 8:30 a.m., why did it take him 2 hrs before calling me? And I would bet that the supervisor had made arrangements to have a teller there to cover my shift since my doctor called her. Please help my family and I. Sincerely, Damari

    To: Senator Barbara Boxer
    Also: Jason J Chan,
    1700 Montgomery Street, Suite 240
    San Francisco, Ca.94111
    Dear Senator Barbara Boxer,
    On, 3/7/07, I received a notice from Citigroup, HR Communications Unit in New York, regarding Corporate benefits for January 2007, I have included a copy with this fax to you..
    I am at the point that I feel this is harassment, why, because Citibank fired me on 12/13/05. It is very upsetting to me every time I receive these notices, it is a constant reminded of everything I have lost due to the unfair and unequal treatment of employees by Jeff Ursino and Citibank. I have already been sent my 401K check due to my termination, I am not contributing to this program so why does Citigroup keep harassing me with these notices. Remember that last October, 2006, Citigroup sent me a letter ( 10 months after firing me) thanking me for 5 years of services and looking forward to 5 more years, why, they fired me. I would have made it to 5 years, as I had no plans to leave the company, but I was fired 12 days before Christmas via UPS. That notice was again just another reminded of what could have been and what I have lost. Please ask Citigroup to stop harassing me with these notices for they are very upsetting to me.
    Also, on 3/7/07, I received a letter from your Director of Constituent Services, Eric Jose Vizcaino, regarding a letter I sent you and it states that my concerns are being forwarded to the Director of the California Department of Fair Employment and Housing, Suzanne M Ambrose, for her review. Again, Citibank attorneys explained to the DFEH, how and why they fired me and as I pointed out to you in an earlier letter, Citibank lied to them about me calling in on 11/15/05, Citibank states that I called in and said I would be out the rest of the week. Again this is a lie, I worked that day. Sheri Paulo, Employee Relations manager of New York for Citigroup, had told me that they said this due to being miss informed , when I brought this lie up to her attention, she said that they had been given bad information and that they would correct this by sending in another statement to the DFEH, and to my knowledge they never did and instead stand by their lie. I have sent you a copy of my time card for that week and other information regarding their statement to the DFEH. Why does Citibank tell the DFEH that I was fired and Ronan of the US Dept. of Labor that I am still employed. They also told Ronan that they would send me a letter explaining how I am still employed, but I never received this letter, why? Last June, Citigroup gave me stock, which I refused due to being fired and Chuck Prince office acknowledges receiving my letter explaining that I had been fired and that I should not have been issued the stock and they took the stock back. I have also sent you a copy of that letter in the black binder which I sent to your San Francisco office, did you receive this binder?
    Please , Senator Boxer, please help us get to the truth, it is as if Citibank doesn’t know what the left hand is doing or the right hand is doing, please help stop the harassment. How many more letters am I going to be sent by Citigroup informing me of everything I have lost.
    Sincerely,
