That intern: The flip-flops intern
Every intern class has so many personalities that they could fill 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 flip-flops intern is that intern who always -- always, always -- wears flip-flops, no matter how formal the occasion (even meeting the POTUS).
That intern arrives to work in flimsy rubber flip-flops from the drug store and changes into more formal flip-flops featuring at least one of these embellishments: Jewels, fringe, rhinestones, beads or tassels.
Whenever someone in the office tries to tell that intern that flip-flops are never appropriate for the office, that intern replies with the "nonsensical price defense": These flip-flops cost more than your boring, black, closed-toe shoes. (The nonsensical price defense also explains why that intern cannot afford to get a pedicure.)
