Heard: Creative Date

An apple-faced, overconfident summer intern – prominently displaying his yellow-green badge on the breast pocket of his suit – marched into our office today to request a meeting with our Member of Congress for ... wait for it ... himself and his girlfriend.  The beauty of it?  He's not even a constituent.  

The intern proceeded to list the only two dates they were available and that they both wanted to discuss with the Member of Congress issues they “found key to the well-being of [the Member's] district.”  Upon leaving, the intern asked our staff assistant for the Member's business card to contact him directly as well about his meeting request. Needless to say, the intern was given our scheduler’s business card instead.  Bonne chance.
