That intern: The bad roommate intern
Every intern class has so many different personalities it is like a Real World cast. And every class has "That Intern" -- as in, "Don't be that intern." Each day I introduce you to one of those interns.
The bad roommate intern seems completely normal at work. But then that intern ventures home to an intern group house. Suddenly, that intern becomes unbearable: Leaving dishes in the sink, inviting over strange overnight guests, loudly playing '80s rock, not rinsing toothpaste out of the sink, eating other people's food (even though that food was properly labeled with initials that are not that intern's initials) and creating drama that cannot be contained in a group house -- this is drama that seeps into work life. But no one at work understands, because, again, that intern seems perfectly normal during daylight hours.
Want to help me stereotype over-worked, under-appreciated, misunderstood interns? Shoot me an email.
