When People Steal Your Stuff at Work
I am specifically talking about people who steal your stuff in lab (since that's where I work). Even if it's just something as small as your styrofoam holder for 50mL falcon tubes and ice bucket, or as large as half of your pipettes or your dissection scissors. It's annoying, rude, and disrespectful. Seriously! And if you borrow it, make sure to put it right back so the owner doesn't have to run around halfway through an experiment trying to find something that they keep on their bench. I'm sure people in offices have the same problem with pens and staplers. So the moral of the story is, don't steal other people's things, even if they are technically owned by the business or lab.
