Spotted was the new batch of interns who proudly advertise that they're interning at the OFFICE OF SENATOR ______ on their Facebook page right next to the pictures of them passed out drunk in Adams Morgan and posts about how "today at work, I found out that Senator _______ doesn't like pickles on her sandwich and will make you get her another one. Who knew she was such a diva?"
As a favor to yourselves, keep your Facebook job description ambiguous - as Intern at United States Senate or House.
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!
