The red line was delayed this morning. While waiting for the train, I overheard a male intern talking to a female dressed in workout clothes.
Guy intern: Yeah, like, those kids with oil money, it's like you know they killed someone or their parents killed someone. They're like "my dad is the minster of housing" and you know that's just code for killing people. Like, I would want to be the prince of Bahrain, but I wouldn't want to kill people... I'm jealous they're so rich.
Girl: ha ha
Guy intern: Like, EVERYONE at my school is so rich. All the girls are like Jewish and have their daddies' Blackberries and they're like "Heyyy my name's Rachel."
Girl: ha ha. Yeah.
.... I couldn't hear them anymore ....
Guy intern: I don't do anything at my job. It's like, GCHAT FACEBOOK CHAT BINGGGG!!!
Girl: That sucks.
Guy: Yeah. It's less stressful that way though. God, we're going to be so late. These are our tax dollars! Like, the metro sucks, it's so slow, especially on the weekends, it's so slow! Like, 15 minutes for a train?! The busses are slower. I could just take a bus all the way to work, but I don't.
This blog is dedicated to those DC residents who eagerly await (or completely dread) DC Summer Intern Season. Essential to the function of most offices in DC, interns are willing to complete tasks that are often considered undesirable.
For many interns, this blog will not apply. For those interns to whom it does apply, we hope that you use these anecdotes to change your behavior and eventually change the stigma attached to DC interns.
PLEASE NOTE: While many offices are understandably concerned about anonymity, please be assured that we will never post identifying information (including, but not limited to, place of work or residence, name, or congressional office).
We welcome you to submit any and all absurd intern stories you are bound to experience this summer.
TWITTER EXCEPTION: We assume you give us permission to re-tweet any submissions you send our way via your public Twitter account.
To the interns: Please use this blog as a learning tool. Godspeed and best of luck this summer!
