The perils of internships

The perils of internships

An intern is called in to implement a particular solution [A] to a problem that the leaders of an organization want solved.

The leaders say, "We want you to do [A]."

The intern says, "If I do [A], [B] will happen."

The leaders say, "Do A."

The intern does A, and B happens.

The leaders say, "Make B go away."

Repeat.
