No more MsPhD nice guy.
Yup, that's it. I'm done. I'm no longer going to worry about helping certain people, because there will always be some of them.
You know, the ones who ask for your protocol, and ask you questions about it, and then don't follow it.
You find out they didn't follow it when they have a problem, and when you ask what they did, they say they did it a different way.
But they still want you to troubleshoot it for them.
Here's my answer:
DO IT MY WAY BECAUSE IT WORKS, YOU TWIT!! OR FUCK OFF!! YOUR CHOICE!!
Yeah. There's a special place in hell for those people.
It might, in fact, be time to make an updated version of lab hell. I may have to try to dig the old one up and optimize it.
Other than that, it was a perfectly decent day, except that...
I found out that despite having a calendar for a specific piece of equipment, nobody remembered that someone had apparently booked this thing I was planning to use later this week... on the day I was planning to use it.
It wasn't on the version of the calendar I had, so I'm wondering if it was really just an honest oversight, or if I got bumped. Either way, it screwed up my day today and more or less screwed up my whole week.
People who can't write on calendars get their own level of hell, too.
And the advisors who are always out of town and never reply to email? They get a nice toasty spot at the bottom, right next to the coals.
