Heard: U.S. Senate v. Congress

Intern, while sending out letters to members of Congress inviting them to an upcoming event: "So wait...if he's a Senator, isn't he in the U.S. Senate, not the Congress?"

Me, after a brief moment of disbelief, explains our government's basic infrastructure, which I recall from 2nd grade.

Intern: "Ok, so what if they are in the House of Representatives?"

Me: "I think when you go back to school you should take a U.S. Politics class."

Intern nervously laughs and walks away.
