an open letter to my advisor

Dear Dr. Hand-Waver,

I know you don’t normally spend time in lab, so here is a suggestion for you: Please close the lid of the acid bath when you are done using it. That way, when I drop the laptop I’m trying to pack, it will only hit the lid and not fall into the acid.


Your klutzy grad student

(P.S. The laptop was packed in bubble wrap so didn’t get too wet. It still boots up. Crisis averted.)
