Damn Good Technician

I'm a technician at a big ol' pharmaceutical company. A damn good technician, if I do say so myself.

Can't offer much beyond informing you it CAN be worse; the one time the lab I was in moved it was partially due to the fact said lab had been massively flooded over the holidays (we were going t. . .Read More

DGT, I second that hope for a better Vikings week... at least they won ;) I guess I should abstain from my "I'll put them in winning the spread every week" but it feels much easier to face I dreame. . .Read More

Is it just me or is that trophy getting grainier with each week?   Next week there should be a summary of the overall leader board. With only one point keeping me from the top . . .Read More

Awesome Stuff
Tuesday, August 24, 2010

We're all busy people. There are dozens of experiments & millions of thoughts bouncing around in our brains every day, and I know I'm prone to forgetting things that I haven't written down. Most of the time, it's a trivial thing - yesterday, I forgot to call a sales guy back about getting a quote & I'll have to do that today, for example.

In the past I've worked with people who use their "forgetfulness" as a cover for passive aggression. They'll "forget" to invite someone to a meeting where their project is discussed. They'll "forget" that they saw a poster at a meeting related to a coworker's project. Because these people are superficially nice, it's easy to dismiss their forgetful nature: I'm sure they meant to say something to me, you think, they just forgot!

Wouldn't it be lovely if there were a simple test to confirm these suspicions? I'd like something like those pH dipping strips, or maybe the pens they use on currency to test for counterfeits.

That would be a brilliant idea! Though if you're havin' a suspicion.. you're probably right. The gut knows!

It would be great to know. Lose some of the paranoia and replace it with honesty. Overall though, I think the saying "just because you're paranoid doesn't mean they are not out to get you" covers it ;) It's hard to forget people on important emails... unless you aren't crucial at all..

I got a good "forget" email last two weeks.... reminded this week when shit hit the fan. THey did not forget. They intentionally stirred up shit and hoped for people to get problems due to them. Why I'm not as mad any more (four days later)? Because they got covered in mud after they tried to throw it at me. Yes, I admit - I am a sucker for schadenfreude, but truly - they started it all ....

There are a ton of passive agressive people in academia AND people always find time for stuff that matters, so my (I suppose very cynical) attitude is that if you forget something it is ALWAYS because you don't find it important - no exceptions (unless you have Alzheimer's).
