Watch Interns Sprint to Hand-Deliver Breaking Supreme Court Decisions

You were forced to go out on a coffee run for the whole office this morning and you have spent the rest of the day complaining about how your internship is the pits to anyone who’ll listen (meaning anyone who is “green” on your Gchat list). Before you call your mom in the bathroom and ask her whether you can be like the Fox Searchlight interns and sue EVERYONE, know this: for the past few days, TV news interns have had it way rougher than you.
During Supreme Court decision season, TV news interns, along with producers, are forced to sprint from the courthouse down to their network’s basecamp in order to hand-deliver court decisions as soon as possible. Do you realize the amount of stairs that seperate the Supreme Court from network plebians? Can you imagine the anxiety (and lack of Oxygen) that cripples a young intern’s heart as she embarks on her foot race, charging past other teams and cameramen, a piece of paper fluttering in her sweaty grip?
Hat tip to Mashable for alerting us to these hilarious Vines of interns darting through crowds and handing off rulings.
