The Graduate Problem

1. Ok! 15 minutes early. Should I wait outside the office or head on in?

2. Will I be seen as too keen if I wait inside?

3. Maybe they'll think I'm a stalker if I keep pacing outside the office?

4. Oh gosh I'm getting sweaty.

5. I should have brought that other shirt.

6. Alright time to go in. This is getting exciting!

7. Ooooh this place is nice! I can totally see myself working here!

8. Who am I kidding? This place is far too good for me.

9. Oooh! I get a name tag!

10. Everybody looks so professional here.

11. Am I supposed to remember everyone's names here?

13. Yes, of course I'll do all your photocopying.

14. This photocopier looks fancy!

15. Oh gosh. How do I work one of these again?

16. Why are photocopiers so bloody hard to use?

17. We weren't taught how to use photocopiers at uni!

18. Alright. Done. This wasn't too hard.

19. Yes, of course I'll go for a coffee run for the whole office.

20. Do I have to pay for all these?

33. Yes, of course I'll happily shred all the photocopies that you made me get for you earlier.

34. What lunch time already?

35. Am I supposed to sit in the lunch room?


37. You can communicate! Talk to someone and don't be a stranger!

38. How does everyone know I'm the intern? Oh yeah its the stupid name badge I've got.

39. So you're telling me you got this job without a uni degree?

40. What am I doing at uni then?

41. How long do I get for lunch again?

42. Everyone is heading back to work. I'll take that as a sign.

43. Back to work I go.

44. Quick! Look busy! The supervisor is coming back.
