Tips for working with Laura, so that she does not light your office on fire:
- Do not send test requests or instructions via text message. You are a smart person, you can figure out my email address.
- If you ask me to determine the crystalline structure of a non-crystalline material, please tell me beforehand that it has no crystal structure, so I do not spend 3 days rerunning it, thinking my data are garbage and the machine is down.
- If your sample is extra-special delicate, tell me before you give it to me, not a week later when I have already machined it by normal methods. And don’t tell me via text message, because I will ignore you (see #1).
