A little bit bitch and a little bit buddhist always at the intersection of biology, gender, race, and culture. This blog documents my experience as a Canadian postdoc living and working in the United States. I can't promise to be PG13. In fact I promise not to be PG13.

Made it back home safe. Got my fellowship application in on time - 2 hrs to spare. Yeah me!
Went into the lab today and saw RedBull for the first time in two months. Our conversation went like this"
"Hey RedBull. Just came by to say, hello and I'm back!"
"Oh okay. Your priority over the next two months is to get that analysis on the Alphabetum done and turned into a manuscript."
Not even a 'hello how are you' or 'welcome back'. Seriously? Well, at least it's not forever. In fact, if I have it my way, I could be doing something else next year.

Ouch :( It amazes me how some scientists can be so indifferent about their employees, almost as if you're not human, you're just there to knock out data and you should be forever grateful that you're being paid to do it :P
Don't take it personally. Some people are not good at expressing their feelings. To me, it sounds like he is saying: "About time you got back here!" meaning, he's glad to have you back.
Hey if he was a people person he would probably be in marketing or sales making the big bucks. :-) Seriously he is a guy + he is a science guy= things over people.
