Can’t I get a backslap up in here? Just one!

I told my PI that I had finished a labour intensive two week assay and I didn’t get the result I was hoping for.

I was really just wanting him to say “Don’t worry bright eyes. Go grab a coffee and collect yourself. You’ve worked real hard”. After which I was planning on 1) crying, 2) drink coffee, then 3) re-start my assay.

Instead he threw over his shoulder a prickly “Just do it again”. No eye contact just a nanosecond of attention, before he swivelled his eyes back to the running jacket he was checking out on amazon.

I was like…
Do it again

But one will.
