Good Lord, Public Intern, you need a raise!

You need hazard pay, Public Intern.

Wow, most awful assignment yet, and that's just from the period-stained leggings.

Posted by Gitai | November 9, 2007 11:23 AM

It's official. This is my new worst nightmare.

1) Couldn't they have given you rubber gloves or something? I mean Jesus, damp undies and used condoms = really fucking gross.

2) Did the roommates let you have any bong hits? That would've been the polite thing to do.

This weekends assignment will be so much easier, and way more fun...

I agree w/ Gloira @2. Hazard pay. I can't believe you went into that mess without gloves. And a flame-thrower.

That last line was horrifying. Thank you, Public Intern.

Wait. What happened? Any sense that she wanted to change her ways? Did she throw you out? Yell and scream?

BTW, even Dan doesn't make enough to do this job--appalling that the Stranger would let you go through with this.

PS, you're still majorly cute.

I LOVE the public intern! Reminds me of that Dirty Jobs TV show.

i'm a female with a disgusting bedroom. Luckily I have friends who get so fed up that they clean it on a bi-monthly basis.

12 - very nice.

Why were the roomates staring at your hands, Public Intern?'

Are they big?

I guess this is like reality TV and has some entertainment value but like reality TV is just a pointless exercise in "shock value".
In reality people take responsibility for their own filth. In reality the girl should have been thrown out. All I see is some spoilt brats getting entertained by you.
I am sure you are worthy of better assignments that do not smack of a "fraternity prank" or some twisted "right of passage".

I continue to love the Public Intern. But this job was really disgusting. Picking up a lady's filthy unmentionables is just icky.

Posted by Michigan Matt | November 9, 2007 11:55 AM

I'm totally grossed out by the idea that you were folding and putting away filthy clothes. Something tells me this girl doesn't smell very fresh. Hopefully the public humiliation will be a wake up call to her shameless lack of personal hygiene!

What, no pics of the roomates, the panties, or the period stains?

I know I'm nitpicking, but c'mon!

There has to be a point where it's okay for Public Intern to be able to say "oh HELL no" when asked to do something like this.

If those bitches wanted that room so cleaned they should have done it themselves.

Posted by monkey | November 9, 2007 12:07 PM

How I would have done it: all of her belongings left outside of her room go into plastic trash bags. The bags are thrown into the room. The door to the room is nailed shut.

Posted by Fnarf | November 9, 2007 12:07 PM

Hazard pay, absolutely. In fact, I'd say a Haz-Mat suit would not have been out of line.

This one goes waaaaay above-and-beyond the call of duty, Steven.

Are you becoming the Stranger's new Worst Enemy, Public Intern?
