  1. Well this is the second time in as many weeks where I have gone to get the Potassium Iodide out of the chemical cupboard but I haven't been able to find it.

    Why cant I find it, I hear you all ask, well it could be because I am looking under K for it rather than P! I think I need to put a little note on my chemical store door in big red letters that potassium starts with a P!

  8. Done it before, but my assistant is the king of mis-filing things. It's quite normal for me to walk in there and staff to hear "It's right...oh..it SHOULD be right here. Where the fsck is it now...hang on, numpty boll...s has been in here..AHA! Here it is, wrong side, wrong shelf. Figures..."

  10. Too scared to stand in a cupboard or near a shelf in physics the teacher's piles of c##p are so high despite my efforts its becoming a health and safety issue
     
  11. I would bin their stuff. I might give them a warning first.

  12. My usual 'kick myself' moment is silently swearing at the idiot who has stained/impossible to scrub off the inside of a glass container, only to realise it's the outside that's mucky...
