Sayesha tagged, and Aarti insisted. so here goes.
First of all, I've never had a real job in a real formal office environment. So this applies to things I've done in the lab, where generally anything goes.. (well most..)
#1 Yelled expletives: I've no patience with computer programs that crash. So when stupid microsoft word would crash on me without saving all the changes i made, i've been known to scream bloody murder.
#2 Talked to myself: Yes, yes, I talk to myself. loudly. i do it all the time. I prefer to call it thinking aloud. I was the only student in my lab for a long time. so come on, it got lonely. When I'm designing an experiment for the first time, or trying to figure out why something is not working, I have to talk aloud about it. To myself. Sometimes I talk to my parasites. Sometimes I talk to the machines, in the hope that my experiment works. Now our lab is full of people, but i still do it. It drives them crazy until they get used to it. Every newcomer to the lab is warned by my boss at their first lab meeting. " we work with human pathogens, you need to take the "Right to know training", these are the numbers in case of an emergency,and you know, err..(hushed tone- and i'm sitting right there too) t.g.f.i, she talks to herself. you need to be aware of that." They turn and look at me, sympathetically, like I have an affliction of some sort. WTH!!! i'm NOT mad. I just talk to myself. jeez.
#3 Taken off my shirt: hahahaha. i spilt a carcinogen on my shirt. No, i wasn't wearing a lab coat. But that tube wasn't supposed to squirt like that either. anyways, it was my mistake, entirely. So first I had to rush to the rest-room to take it off. Then I called my friend using my cellphone and had her bring me an extra shirt. It was a big, secret joke.
#1a Yelled expletives: this time, at a closed door. at night when there was no one else around. obviously, they were targeted at a certain someone. :)))) it was very liberating. i recommend it to all of you.
that's it folks. you all know more than you ever needed to about me now. I might as well tell you my name and where i live.
