Contest: let’s find the oldest intern

Yesterday, we had an intern who was 60. Today, we have one that’s 62 (Pugnacious McKinney Aide Is “Paid Intern”, WSB-TV Atlanta, August 9, 2006).

Muhammad earned $11,000 in 2005. In federal records, he’s listed as a “paid intern”. McKinney’s staff said he works as the congresswoman’s driver.

So, if you’re a driver and you’re 62, for what job exactly are you getting prepared?

The word “intern” has been hijacked to a point where his vagueness allows more people to make up a definition that hides “unpaid job”, “underpaid job” or “not-much-learning-into-this-credited-internship”.
