“I’m here for a good time, not a long time,” said Emile Davenport as she down the last of her vodka sunrise and raised her eyebrows at the barman for another.
The 29-year-old mergers and acquisitions specialist joined the team at Bell Potter’s Betoota office half way through last year and her bosses have said she’s taken to the multinational like a Frenchman to a stick of butter.
Speaking to The Advocate on Friday, the saucy Scorpio said she sees the pitfalls in each side of politics and has elected to ‘just move on with her life’ than get bogged down getting triggered all the time.
“I don’t know how they do it, you know,” she said.
“I mean, they’d be so tired all the time getting worked up over nothing. Like nothing. Boom, seeing a bloke with his legs apart on the bus, ‘Oooohh you manspreading prick!’ Yeah, well maybe he’s just trying to get comfortable. And all that other shit, I just can’t deal with it.”
Ms Davenport also revealed her secret to career success, explaining that you don’t get anywhere by trying to stick it to the man.
“Fuck me, I’m so wasted, but fuck. Listen. You don’t get ahead by trying to beat the game. You win by being the best at playing the game. Just live in the moment and work hard. Oooh fuuuuck… I’m going to vomit.”
The UQ alumnus’ sentiments were echoed by her managing partner and local philanthropist Gavin R. Pearson AM.
“We don’t employ people here with a political agenda here at Bell Potter Betoota. We employ people who enjoy smoking inside and the odd drink. Mixed touch is compulsory. It just works. No Catholics, either.”
More to come.
