Heard: Late as Usual

This unfortunate story happened in our office this morning. I know that Summer Associates are not interns, but for all intents and purposes, when they act like an "intern," they might as well be labeled as such.

Dear Summer Associate: Announcing that you're late "as usual" when you waltz into the office twenty-minutes late is not going to get you an offer, especially in this economy. Furthermore, when someone asks if it was due to the Metro delays, I urge you not to say laugh and say, "no, I just like to sleep a lot."
