The Intern Power Struggle

Hi girls!
Rose, my love, keep your head up!  Good things are surely heading your way.  But if you need lessons in being a dude, I hear Flora is a beer pong champion!  

I hate to complain but I have a problem and you are not going to believe what (who!) is getting me down... MY INTERN!  Yes, I have an intern and she is a pain in the ass!  Her name is Melanie and since she started this week (my boss hired her while I was away, more on that later!) she has not stopped making my life difficult.  I could really teach her a thing or two about interning because this girl is a nightmare!  She arrives late everyday (if at all!), she disappears early and the other day she told me I SHOULD WORK FOR HER!  Ummm no!  I paid my dues, girlfriend!  haha!  I am trying not to lose it because I, more than anyone at work, understands the plight of the intern - but man oh man, she is not making it easy on me!  

Anyway, Melanie was hired while I was away last weekend.  My boss gave me Monday off so I decided to head down to the Ile de Ré to visit a dear friend of mine, Kurt, who has a fab house on the beach!  He is a year-round resident so it was so nice to learn the ins and outs from a true local.  Kurt is actually American, from NYC, but made the Ile de Ré his home 7 years ago.  Quelle chance!  It did me a world of good to get away from my boss (aka my neighbor!) and the hustle and bustle of Paris.

After a restful long weekend you can imagine my surprise when I arrived at work on Tuesday morning to find an intern snooping through my stuff!  I think I'm going to have to put her in her place once and for all.  If I don't, I may end up interning for her!  haha!  

Bisous xx Ophelia
