A Message from the Department of Lab Security

Building up a desirable stash of lab supplies takes months – if not years.  The tube racks, the styrofoam floaties, the accurate pipets.  But in an instant, all of the effort we put into hoarding goods can be ripped away by the actions of one selfish labmate.  That’s about to change.

We at the BenchFly Department of Lab Security feel this equipment abuse has gone on long enough.  So we’re issuing this public service flyer to deter sticky-fingered labmates and other loiterers from destroying up the mini-empires you’ve worked hard to create.  Simply print it out and stick it on your bench, equipment or door to let would-be violators know we’ve got our eye on them…

    Ah… the lengths we go to protect our stuff! Hiding only works so well, sometimes you need traps: like putting the crappy tweezers in the front of the drawer so someone doesn't bother digging further back to get the good ones. And writing your name on something? That's just asking someone to take it. My solution (although it will be augmented with this sign) is a locked tool box. Yup, all my good tweezers, carbon tape, etc are right there but you can't get them! Oh, and living in the lab so you can always watch over your stuff works too…
