Heard: Directional Difficulties

I was asked to escort a senior staffer to the capitol building to have a meeting with Reid and then Pelosi. I was so happy and eager to be given this task (after professing I knew the building very well) I started marching the staffer to his meeting with Reid, but ended up taking him towards Pelosi’s office. Halfway through the rotunda he stops and says “I don’t think this is the right way.” I began to blush the color of my badge and had to backtrack all the way where his actual meeting was, making him very late.

Oh, and for the current interns who read this site; there is a huge difference between “working for” and “interning for” a congressman. The staffers you meet can tell the difference.
