Thank you for bringing the blog back! My team and I love all the stories, and try to pass on some hints to our new staff as to the best way to behave. While sharing our best stories so far this season, my friend topped all others with her tanning tales:
Most people think that rooftop use in DC is for bars only, but a group has been spotted on a roof during lunch break, in the buff. Can you please give a shout out to the interns of DC that tanning in the summer is awesome, but naked roof tanning is at your own discretion, and only when there are not other buildings higher than yours next door? Especially when the building you live in is next to your office...
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!
