Celrynnya Posted February 11, 2013 Share Posted February 11, 2013 I got a job last year in the same lab that I did my PhD. You know how there are some people who just don't get along? There was a woman in the lab (let's call her KW) who really rubbed me the wrong way, but I couldn't do or say anything about it because she was staff and I was just a student. (The academic pecking order is brutal.) Anyways, I finally finished and was offered a job, and accepted it because science jobs are few and far between. Anyways, I was placed in an office with her for all of two weeks before she left for maternity leave. Since she went off to have her baby the dynamics of our four-person office shifted to a huge degree - the boys in my office and I get along really well. The problem is that KW is returning to work in a few weeks, and will be coming back to her old desk in our cozy little office. Really, what it comes down to is that we just don't like eachother - we can get along if we have to, but we are certainly not eachothers' friend. I'd love to try out a phero that might help either to get her to respect me more (she is having trouble adjusting to me being her equal rather than just another student), or that will chill me out a bit (so it's more of a water-off-a-duck's-back kind of deal on my side), or both. I was thinking something like Swimming with Sharks. All advice welcome Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
