E-mail an office received from their intern ... Subject: Let's Set Sail on a Voyage to aFridayIntern Lunch Hey Gang, Despite the treacherous rains of Tropical Storm Andrea pounding outside our cozy building, I think it would be a splendid idea if we could all get together for our 2nd weeklyFridaylunch! Some of you are probably saying, "Hey [Redacted Name] we really don't like you or your emails and we would prefer to be left alone to wallow in the misery of our work." Unfortunately, I am a dreamer and I'm not the only one. I have a dream. A dream of a world in which all interns, no matter [their department] can coexist in harmony. All interns are created equal in their pursuit of enjoying DC lunches. So I'm not going to stop with my email campaign. Might as well continue to have some fun while we're all working for free. Anyway, let's get back to the plan for today. Some of us over here in the [Redacted] department have a hankering for Mexican food and have found a place nearby that should satisfy our craving. Who knows, our appetite may change by lunch time and we may go for something else so if you have suggestions please do not hesitate to make your opinion known. If you would like to join us (which I would encourage you all to do for the sake of party unity) just shoot me an RSVP. Let's all meet in the lobby around1PM. Can't wait to see all of you. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QzBmQMyYDBk See you all this afternoon!!

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!
