The article presents a conversation of Tom, an executive, and Caroline, an intern, about their professional and personal relationship.

Tom suggested that he will tell his friends that they met at the office when he introduces her. Caroline was surprised when Tom said that people might make a comment that he is spending a lot of time with another intern.
