The other kind of PT/Intern stories

    I thoroughly enjoyed the thread last week about the part-timer horror stories (and laughed my ass off). But what about good experiences you've had with part-timers and interns... you know.... where they do something exceptionally (and perhaps surprisingly) well?

    I made one on the same guy on the previous thread, although it was more funny than a horror story. This guy taught at a local elementary school and worked about 25-30 hours a week for us. He sometimes stayed until 1 a.m. helping type in roundups despite the fact that he had to get up at 5 a.m. to get ready for school. Wasn't the quickest or sharpest guy out there, but did everything we asked of and took our constant ball breaking with a smile. He wrote stories on things we didn't want to and did it with pleasure. Great all-around guy.

    I was an amazing part-timer.

    That's not what I hear. More hype than substance. In fact, some might say you were overrated.

    Well, this intern came into my oval office once. So I took out a fine cigar from my humidor ....

    We've had amazing luck with interns, particularly in recent years.
    Part-timers? Always hit or miss.
