In this final installment of the Washington Bureaucrat’s hard hitting, soft power, six-part series in which our intern goes undercover at the State Department, the most common winter weather phenomenon in America shuts down the entire U.S. government.
Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday of Week Two
The State Department is closed on account of snow. I will later learn that this counts as one of my ten weeks, because my internship end date is already in the system and to change it would require a form. I decide to round down and just stop coming in now. The next time I hear from them is six months later–in an email asking when I’d like to schedule my goodbye party.
