    15 Intense Fears Every Intern Has

    "Will I die here?"

    1. "Am I allowed to chime in at this meeting?"

    What if you say something stupid? What if they all remember that you're just some kid?

    2. "Can I ask for something to do?"

    HBO/Veep / Via

    You have no assignments, but are you annoying your supervisor to the point of no return?

    3. "How will I find my way back to the office after this errand?"

    4. "What should I talk about with my coworkers?"

    Everyone is 8+ years older, what do you even talk about? Tax return forms? Kids?

    5. "Does my boss secretly hate me?"

    AMC/Mad Men

    You're always trying to decipher the delicate subtext in their speech.

    6. "Will they fire and blacklist me if I fail this task?"

    Everything depends on you.

    7. "When can I take lunch? For how long? Can I go outside?"

    Can...can you eat?

    8. "Should I try and mingle at company events?"

    Are you even allowed to be here? DOES ANYONE CARE?

    9. "Is my whole career just going to be me doing busy work?"

    20th Century Fox/Office Space / Via

    Your BA in English = licking envelopes and filling out spreadsheets forever, sorry.

    10. "Can I check my phone/Facebook for a second???"

    Columbia Pictures/The Social Network / Via

    If you feel lucky. Do ya???

    11. "Am I allowed to say 'no' when asked if I 'want' to do something?"

    20th Century Fox/Office Space / Via

    "Do you want to reorganize our entire directory?" "Well..."

    12. "Should I stay late? Am I allowed to leave?"

    Fox Searchlight Pictures/500 Days of Summer / Via

    No one said you could leave.

    13. "Can I participate in Secret Santa?"

    NBC/The Office

    NBC/The Office

    When they say everyone should participate, does that include lowly interns?

    14. "Do they have a favorite intern?"

    20th Century Fox/The Heat / Via

    Your supervisor smiled at the other intern and not you. This means war?

    15. "Will I get a job?"

    Is the anxiety all worth it?
