The Ungrateful Intern

Hello my dearest Eternal Interns,
I am sorry for my absence.  It has been a very difficult week!  I haven't had many complaints about my tormentor (Victoire), because she has been out of the office a lot lately.  All that changed on Monday when she decided to stick around for the whole week and make our lives hell.  When I say "hell," you may think I'm exaggerating, but this woman is a whole new level of psychotic.  Not only were we all sent to walk her damn dog, but I cannot tell you how many coffee runs I have done when she sits right next to an espresso machine!

What's worse, is that V has now resorted to verbal abuse of interns. I am pretty sure she is violating some law!  Today, she had the nerve to call me "ungrateful"!  For what?  For the opportunity to get her coffee and take care of her dog?!  No thanks!  I am so grateful for my internship at a fabulous magazine with a lovely boss, but I am not thankful for her devil of an assistant who has been tormenting me for 2 months!  Heureusement, my internship comes to an end in three weeks and then it will be a victoire for me when I am finally rid of Victoire!

As you can see, I am in a bit of a mood tonight.  I guess I am just frustrated that I have put in 10 months at the fashion magazine and it will amount to nothing in the end!  I am trying to keep my head up and to see the positive in any opportunity I get, but Victoire is really getting to me!  So what's a girl to do?  Is there yet another internship in my future, or will this Eternal Intern finally land that dream job?  Stay tuned!

  1. hi Ophelia,
    don't worry I'm sure Eternal Employment is just around the corner.

  2. O,
    I totally understand how you feel... sucks that Victoire isn't a more grateful employer. I have had to walk dogs and take them to the vet as you know... but my boss was so apologetic for having me do it and then ever so grateful after the fact!
    V can take her espresso machine and do you know what with it!
