Proverbial school-leaver from Bucharest
/prəˈvɜːbiəl skuːl ˈliːvə frɒm ˌbuːkəˈrɛst/ (Archetype.)

A favourite hypothetical figure in these pages, the proverbial school-leaver from Bucharest is the one coding your linear program, negotiating your ISDA Master Agreement, running your onboarding operation and, in her evenings, waiting tables, driving an Uber and running a corner for a Belarussian drug dealer — frequently two or three of these activities at the same time.
