Oh, we can't use that machine this week because it's currently on fire?

I wish my collaborator had mentioned that he was going to Bora Bora for the two weeks before this grant deadline.

Why didn't we order that reagent two weeks ago when we ran out of it?

Ah, the Core Center needed to go off line for three days for maintenance, with no warning.

Great, daycare had to close because an emu infestation?

Dude. Fuck. sigh.
