Eric Durrant, the laboratory's invaluable technical expert took the concept of personal protective equipment (PPE) to a whole new level. He was found doning 4 lab safety equipments just on his face while aliquoting water. 'Safety' Sandy was heard commenting, "I am not sure what Eric was doing with his PPE. I am a bit confused whether to be proud of him or be a bit concerned about him...". The laboratory members did agree that Eric should be promoted to GLC status at least for the remaining hours of 'Aliquoting Tuesday'. When Eric was asked how he felt about the whole GLC status change, he said, "I have always been a GLC....how come I am getting promoted to the status I already hold????". On asked why he was aliquoting water, he said, "Aliquoting is an integral part of our lab especially on 'Aliquoting Tuesdays' and you can never be too careful these days and hence PPE is very important." As usual, Vinnie was heard saying, "Eric is a slacker but a freaking genius nonetheless." Dude.....its ABTLTV!
