Heard: It Kinda Sucks ... Having to do my Job

Last week as I was walking to Union Station away from the Hill, a tourist stopped one of the Hill interns sporting his red badge of courage. He looked extremely annoyed. My guess was that he was on his way to happy hour with the five short-skirt, casual Friday girls with him. This woman was asking about what he did, and what to do, and the girls were giggling away as he struggled to keep it together. When she asked how he liked it he politely remarked, "It kinda sucks having to walk people over to the Capitol for ten minutes when I could be doing something else." The poor woman took the hint, a little embarrassed from the pointed peanut gallery.
