I know what my problem is

Not enough hate.

Yesterday, I bumped into an old acquaintance from the building I used to work in earlier. She was from a big lab with lots of people, and lots of activity. She always looked a bit hassled. (A tad more than the typical grad student level of hassle, i'd say).

Me: Hey S! How have you been? Good seeing you here.
S: Oh just great. And how about you?
Me: Good too. How are things back in your lab? Say hi to all the folks there.
S: Oh things are great. Ever since G graduated, the lab has become such a happy place. We were all praying that she graduated soon, and we're so glad she's gone now.
Me: Oh!? (thinking in my mind, that G graduated? before ME?) :-)
Me: Oh, howcome G graduated earlier than usual?
S: Well.. who cares, we're glad she's gone!
Me: That's great then. Can you guys please throw some hate my way?

Nice reasoning :)
I bet thats actually true!!
It reminds me how the warden in "Shawshank redemption" didnt want the hero to be out(that is legally,not the way he actually did)...
Just check out,whos getting benefited by your NOT graduating soon ;) ;)

fafridi said...

uhhh!!! i hate you, from the bottom of my heart!!!! why don't you just graduate!!!!!!!!!

Sakshi said...

Haha.
I used to believe that if your boss thinks you are likely to snap, you will be pushed onward without delay.
Now I see the error of my ways - he has to think that others in my lab are likely to snap..hmmmm
Changing tactics :)

hahahahaha
too much you are :D

Hehehe. I hope you have a game plan now. Start using up all the bench space in the lab, and storing stuff in everyone else's 4 degree space, and contaminating the tissue culture hood, and using up the last bit of the solutions from the common store and never make up any fresh, betcha you'll graduate in the blink of an eye ;)

Hahaa... But I cant hate u baby! :)
Wait, will it work if I pretend? :D

Rebellion said...

I agree with Jane, Lajjo!
Try being a pain in the neck for those in the lab, except your e-coli pls but including the janitor haan :P

Don't worry sweets, in next few months time, people out there in your lab will be missing you & not thanking that you're gone :)

Happy Valentine's Day bacha.
Wish all the success & more love to come your way, not hate :)

Take care,
Aarti
