That intern: The badge-never-comes-off 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.
At intern orientation, interns were told to wear their badges at all times for security reasons. It was a request that the badge-never-comes-off intern took very seriously. That intern is always wearing that piece of plastic -- at work, during an early-morning run, during happy hour at Union Pub, on a date, taking a shower and even while sleeping.
That intern must worry that if the badge ever came off, disaster might set in. A national emergency might be called. People might forget that intern's name! Or where that intern works!
So while all of the other interns leave the office and stash their badges in pockets and purses, the badge-never-comes-off intern scoffs at their disregard for national security and confidentially strides ahead.
Want to help me stereotype over-worked, under-appreciated, misunderstood interns? Shoot me an e-mail.
