Interns

Anybody notice all the interns at the Columbia Heights Metro these days? They're easy to spot - blue collared shirt, khakis, confused/excited look on their faces, and always talking with their new co-interns about how many more stops they have to go.

I guess the hood's group houses and such provide a less-expensive version of city life, but still close enough to the Hill or wherever. Plus there's the Target right there, so they can buy more blue shirts and milk crates and such.

I REALLY hate it when they break one of the unspoken laws of Metro: No extended and/or audible chit-chat during the morning commute! Thank G-D for iPods, becuz I can't stand it when all you hear in the entire car are two interns blaring about how awesome it is to get the Senator's coffee and file his briefs, ughhhhhh

It also takes them a while to figure out which side of the escalators are for walking and which are for standing.

i usually take the bus, but got on the metro this morning and was SHOCKED at the number of young kids in suits. i think i'll stick to the bus, the yuppies-in-training creep me out.

i spent an entire ride the other day staring at 2 of them who were inexplicably standing around wearing sunglasses on the train and chatting about their jobs, trying to act like they don't spend their days opening mail and surfing the internet. And like their hill badges aren't color-coded so that you can spot them a mile away...
