I've been known to wear a seersucker suit to work every once in a while. It is a fun Washington tradition: Seersucker Wednesday (House), Seersucker Thursday (Senate). However, I could not believe my eyes earlier this week when I saw a House intern sporting their seersucker suit with white tennis shoes and no socks. It was clear this was not simply his "walk to work" choice of shoe. He proudly wore his white tennis shoes during the work day with his suit. At least he waited until after Memorial Day to rock the white shoes?
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!
