Last week I was at an event at Hill Country's Boot Bar when a drunk girl (we'll call her #1) stumbled down the stairs to use the restroom around6 p.m.She was screaming obscenities about the political party opposite hers at every person she passed and was screaming inappropriately about members of her own political party (of which I happen to be a member). Her less drunk, but equally rude, friend ponied up to somebody and figured out that perhaps they were unwelcome downstairs, and probably looked around and realized who was there and immediately started hushing #1. #1 screamed that it was her birthday, and announced that she was the president of her college political organization, and an intern for a somewhat well known Member of Congress and therefore could do whatever she wanted and "dared" somebody to try and kick her out. I'm not sure if #2 got the hint, or if they were told to get lost, but it was a sight. I later saw #1 being dragged out by #2 and another girl, unable to walk, and still screaming at every person she saw. Classy, ladies. Classy.
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!
