That intern: The Greek
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.
Everything that happens during the internship is exactly like something that happened at the sorority or fraternity of the Greek intern. Everything.
During orientation all of the interns are forced to get to know each other -- which is totally like during rush when that intern went to all of those parties. The intern class T-shirts are totally like the pledge T-shirts from Fall 2008. And when those two interns got into that fight, it was totally like that one time at spring formal 2010.
But even though the internship class already has many Greek characteristics, the Greek intern suggests trying to make it even more like a fraternity or sorority: We should all live together in a house! We should pick Greek letters to represent our group! We should have a secret ritual! We should elect a social chair! We should pay dues!
The other interns -- who did not have the life-changing privilege of being in a Greek house -- do not understand this intern. They just want to sit and drink their beer.
Want to help me stereotype over-worked, under-appreciated, misunderstood interns? Shoot me an e-mail.
