I tried it at work!
« on: July 07, 2008, 07:51:17 PM »
My co-irker is a lousy planner.  When he needs help during an experiment he never asks until the last minute.  And my boss assumes co-irker takes care of his need for help the way I do mine.  ( I send out emails minimum two weeks ahead of time)

So today good coworker mentions that co-irker (who just came back from a spur of the moment vacation) is running an experiment tomorrow.  I tell GC that I'm really busy tomorrow, but that I haven't been asked to help.  I leave at 3:30 and co-irker disappeared at noon only to reappear at 3pm frantic to get things ready for tomorrow.

The experiment involves a time point, a six hour incubation, and then a 2-3 hour experiment.  Co-irker asked me if I can help at 3pm tomorrow.  I told him that wouldn't be possible.  I"ll be repeating with my boss when he wonders why I"m leaving tomorrow at 3:30 when they're knee deep in the experiment.
