Because someone will steal the microwave, right?


As if it's not bad enough to be the only one in the building, I discover that someone decided to it would be fun to close and lock doors to common spaces, such as...

A lab equipment room...

And the lunch room.

The lab equipment room, I can handle. I can access similar equipment elsewhere in the lab, just not my favorite.

But the lunch room? Do they have any idea how dangerous it is to deprive a postdoc access to legal drug options? Looks like I'm going out for lunch and caffeine.

Update: Turns out someone got locked out accidentally with very important things (i.e. ID and passport) locked in. She is supposed to fly out of the country tomorrow. And evidently only one person has a key to the room. He is incommunicado--and has been for two days. So much for emergency contacts.

Campus security can surely let you in if you can convince them you are entitled to access. You could also try to find some custodial staff; they have keys to everyfuckingthing.

Only problem is our lab isn't on the main campus (yet) but in a separate building (one of the issues with being part of an affiliate within a center or some such nonsense).
