Jenna Johnson

It's Friday, so here's your weekly list of the funniest things I have seen interns (or their bosses or co-workers) say on Twitter this week ...

@aliassquint Just saw the Secretary of the Treasury! Timothy Geithner is like an idol in our office. The other intern was FLIPPING OUT. July 30

@kickthebobo 20yo intern didn't know what either a Hipster or American Apparel was. Looking into get her some sort of EPA protected status. Aug 2

@AmandaLitman The big boss calls me "darling." Pro: it's demeaning and he would never call the other intern that. Con: awwwwwhelovesme! July 30

@vabeachrep Final thought: if you're an intern, you do NOT flash the peace sign to your manager as a way of saying "I'm leaving for the day." July 31

@kinksgem So this male nurse intern asked if I was preggers. Once I said no, he started flirting w/ me. Que? Aug 2

@kevindalias Pro tip for internship candidates: reply-all is your friend. Use it. Aug 2

@YurtRabia I thought the idea of an internship was to gain experience..so why do they reject you for any internship cuz u lack that experience??? Aug 2

@stealing1stbase @EliseMichelle Going by your Twitter bio, you're an intern. Not sure why I would have heard of an intern. Get over yourself. Aug 4
