Friday’s Unscientific Poll: Cheeky door label [20170519|10:20]

[the weather today is |underslept]

Our corridor was refurbished several months ago, and new door labels were applied. The admin staff have since added names and roles (e.g. “Lecturer”, “Research Associate”) to about 70% of the doors.

My officemate and I grew tired of waiting for ours to appear and have thus created our own.

We’re trying to decide how long it will be before anyone notices.

I LOVE that. And I was leaning toward "months" when I thought, nah-- even I'm observant enough to....wait. DANG IT! You work with primarily scientists! They won't notice!! LOL
I'm counting on at least ONE observant admin.

I suspect visiting scientists and students might notice, but am dubious about whether regular occupants on my floor will!
