Heard: Ten Week Vacation

While riding on the metro, I overheard three young interns from Los Angeles complain about their internships at lobbying firms.  One complained about not doing anything but answer phones, another griped about doing data entry, and the other was confused about being placed in a budget office, complaining that "I don't know anything about finance."  

They all nodded in agreement, rather upbeat, after one commented that "It's like being on a 10-week vacation."
