Does anyone else end up feeling like you have a learning disability every time you have to communicate with your fixed income guys?  I always felt like I had just gotten a wedgie and then been stuffed in my locker whenever I had a question with the AGE fixed income guys.  RJ is a lot better, but it still feels like they keep a big whiteboard with "stupid retail guys question of the day" on the wall.  Where's the love?

Haha. Nobody understands bonds. After the last year, fewer pretend. I love BND, TIP, AGG, etc.

Opposite situation. I had a client interested in a non rated bond the other day. Trader took about 5 minutes on the phone to explain the particulars. Then sent me a 148 page PDF to back it up.

 
I bought 150 of the bonds. Nice work on the bond desk!

Very cool move by your bond guy, BondGuy!  'Course, you probably speak their language better than most of us.

I seriously can't believe that you guys are finance "professionals", no offense.
