Update:  Moonshine is the greatest attitude adjuster in the world. Swigging my peach flavored shine out on the balcony last night, my anger subsided and I came up with some great ideas for my exam.  However thanks to the hangover and the sparse amount of sleep, I'm feeling pretty haggard but motivated.

 

I'm sorry.  Really really sorry.  I lost my shit tonight.  I admit that the five minute long string of profanity and cursing heaven and earth, anyone responsible and their future progeny might have been a bit much.  But lets preface the events of my day:

-I have been at work for 17 hours.

-The only meal I have had in the last 30 hours has been a tiny sliver of cake.

-My booze stash has run dry.

-I had to teach a technician how to do western blots today at the end of the day.  He loaded the gel just fine, but he reversed the leads on the power source and didn't notice this until 45 minutes into the gel.  Thus setting my schedule back by more than hour after noticing and restarting the gel.

-Another Bio-Rad power pack failed.  I honestly felt sorry for you guys after my angry post, but not now.  Fuck you guys.  

-A beleaguered postdoc from another lab is interested in a technique that I can do.  He decides to solicit my input right before he starts an experiment that he has never done.  After asking me for my protocol he compares it to his and announces there are differences from the one used in this paper and mine.  That's great asshole, I really don't care.  Oh and you want me to explain them to you.  Is there an insignia on my shirt that says Captain Freetime?  And don't get so huffy when I tell you I don't have time for this.  Seriously do not fuck with me, my people are brown (I'm actually half-brown), we go crazy, we build bombs.  Don't risk it asshole.

-Met with boss.  He still refused to understand that I have an exam going on and stacks a fuck ton of work on me that is due next week.  At this point I am now just glaring at the motherfucker and resisting the urge to punch him in the dick.  He is usually an understanding man during most circumstances, however he has been nothing but an utter fucking prick during this time to me.

-Someone has used up all the aliquoted FBS and chosen not to realiquot anymore.  Thus necessitating me to thaw out the huge fucking brick of FBS that comes in a 2L bottle.  Do you know how long a 2L bottle of FBS takes to thaw out in a water bath?  Too fucking long.  If you use it, you replenish it.  How am I the only stupid son of bitch that gets this?  This delays my cell culture work by over an hour and half.

-Oh fuck where are the coverslips for immunofluorescence?  Another resupply issue, luckily I remembered where I put a secret stash one time after this happened before.  Hey and can you assholes stock breaking our microscope, its kind of an expensive piece of equipment, rather than a heavy paperweight you dickchins continuously find new ways to break.

-But what tipped the scales was when setting up a transfer for a western in our cold room, I somehow blew the GFCI for the entire room.  After resetting them all, they popped again when I turned on the power box.  

And these my friends are reasons that I suddenly transformed from a mild mannered graduate student into a loom that weaved together an intricate 5 minute long tapestry of profanity.  My poor coworker had to watch me hurl a binder across the lab in disgust.  The guy looked at me and was asked if I was pissed at him?  At that point out of anger and breath, all I can say is, "Hey I'm not mad at you, I'm just mad at the world."

In other news though, my westerns and IF turned out great.  I'm dipping into my secret stash of moonshine tonight.

GR, just take the week off. There isn't really anything your boss can do and he'll forget about it eventually. There's no need to get this stressed out. I threes 4 minute profanity tizzy a few Saturdays ago when the co2 tanks ran dry on the tissue culture incubators for the 3rd time. This was even after telling my techs to make a daily che moist of stuff to look at/fill/clean everyday.

I'm just impressed that you were able to throw a highly-inventive profanity laden tizzy in the midst of preparing for your exam. I think at about that time I was reduced to just grunting, pointing, and glaring murderously at people. We've all been there. I think you've got a good plan to do what you have to do and just fit in everything else if you can. Good luck!

Comprehensives are stressful. Not sure how it is in your dept, but at our institute, it is very common to take at least 3 weeks before the oral exam part off to focus solely on the exam. As someone who has just gone through it, you need to time to integrate and look at the big picture.

oh and totally get the losing your shit. On the bright side, at least you didn't lose your shit at a 3 year old.

Dude, I am sorry to laugh but LOL!!! I have so been there. I am an overdramatic, rage-prone person. More than once I f'ed something up at 10 pm, ruining a whole day's worth of work (or more) and made myself so mad that I had to resort to violence against inanimate objects. Main outlet was kicking the metal bench cabinet doors with all my might (and steel-toed clogs, no foot damage necessary). My favorite one? A huge profanity rant culminating in stabbing a lab chair with a pair of scissors. Luckily, the only person around was my good friend who just stared at me trying not to laugh.

I got so mad last night, I grabbed the power cord to the now defunct Bio Rad power pack and slung it around in a circle like a lasso before whipping the shit out of the door to the cold room. The technician saw this and about fell over in laughter.

"Seriously do not fuck with me, my people are brown (I'm actually half-brown), we go crazy, we build bombs. Don't risk it asshole."

LMFAO - use that, please.

OK, focus on your exam, ignore your boss. He'll get over it of you pass your exam.

After the exam, take a long weekend. leave early on Friday and don' go in on Monday. Seriously, you'll need to out-gas for a while.

My best explosion ever was after my PI called out (postdoc #2) on something utterly pointless while I was trying to load a Western gel and made me fuck it up and thn called me on that too.

I grabbed a box of 1000ul tips and hurled it at the wall next to him and roared "C**T" at the top of my lungs. Box exploded and he ran off LMFAO

I have a *very* short fuse and also yell like a motherfucking bull elephant with it's dick in the zipper when I need to...

needless-to-say, we didn't speak for several days after that. He made peace by giving me a Diet Coke he got as an extra out of the machine and the world was right again for a few months.

But at least the pay is good, right?

Well, at least once you graduate, you can look forward to the massive increase in pay as a postdoc.

Or not.

This sounds like a great episode of reality TV.
You should try and get picked up by a network, or maybe HBO, so it's not all beeped out when you curse.
I'd watch religiously.

OMG, hold it, you mean I'm not the only one who has ever let loose an obscene rant *about* the world *in front of a relatively innocent coworker* (not exactly AT them)? Or the only one who kicks lab benches (mine still has a dark mark from my old shoes)???
You mean, I'm not just a sick psycho who is totally unfit for science? Or at least, I'm not alone?

That's mindblowing. The next thing I know, someone will tell me they regularly read emails from their PI and spend the next hour trying to pipet through shaking hands and howling their head off. Or that the best thing about being in the lab at 10pm is that no one else is there to hear said howling.

Although- I bet none of y'all have ever BIT a piece out of your steering wheel on your car though. I'm still the craziest, right?

A dumbass coworker of mine screwed in a cork board over a breaker box in the lab because they couldn't find nails. This box contained breakers that most frequently popped because of our shitty electrical situation in the lab. When a breaker in the box tripped and needed to be reset, I got so mad that I tore it off the wall. Then I proceeded to screw the various pieces of what was left of the cork board into my coworker's desk. And because I lost all sense of self control, I barricaded the door to the cell culture room with boxes of paper stacked 10' high and wide, and 6' deep, because I knew they were coming in the next day to do cell culture. I somehow evaded getting into trouble for the destruction of a corkboard, but got chastised for moving all the paper boxes out of the supply room.
