Spotted: We Have Glue Sticks for That

I just want to start by saying that I absolutely love your blog! As a second-summer Capitol Hill intern and DC native, this blog has essentially articulated almost everything I've been thinking over the past two years.

This is a story about an intern in my office last summer. Let's just say that his first-day behavior should have been a warning.

On his first day, the new intern was given the fairly harmless task of folding response letters and stuffing them into envelopes to mail to constituents. The new intern's first day happened to be the day after Memorial Day, so Congress was in recess, and our boss's personal office was empty. The new intern proceeded to take the stack of letters from his desk and move into our boss's office to complete the task. Furthermore, the new intern decided the best place to fold and stuff was at our boss's desk. However, being a first-day intern and thinking he already knew how everything worked in the office, the new intern licked all 100+ envelopes to seal them.

We have glue sticks for that.
