Conspicuous consumption by the Goldman rats

Remember last week's revelation of the Goldman Sachs internal order where CEO Lloyd Blankfein told employees to tone down their conspicuous consumption?

You see, it's apparently OK for Goldman to make obscene profits while Fed and Treasury burden future generations with unimaginable debt to keep the Goldman Ponzi scheme going, as long as we keep it on the down-low.

Yeah, well wifey didn't get the message:
Laura Blankfein and her friend Susan Friedman, wife of another Goldman honcho, Richard Friedman, caused a huge scene at Super Saturday in the Hamptons last weekend when they arrived at the event before the noon start time and balked at waiting in line with the other ticket-holders.

"Their behavior was obnoxious. They were screaming," said one witness. Blankfein said she wouldn't wait with "people who spend less money than me."

Another observer said the women were so impatient, it was as if they were waiting on line for a kidney transplant instead of a charitable designer clothing sale.

Friedman shouted at the event organizer, "You have lost so much money because of this . . . Why should we be treated like the $650 donors?"
