The Question Club
I'm doing my final thesis project, but unfortunately I've been having some problems getting along with some of the other members of the lab. Not as in fighting- essentially I said some stupid things back when I first started (most of my classes have been in structural biochemistry, the lab I was assigned to was an immunology lab, I guess I didn't know some of the things they considered 'basic'), and a couple of the bitchier lab techs have been treating me like shit/giving me the cold shoulder ever since. The lack of support has been really affecting the quality of work I'm doing, so I was considering baking something and brining it in as a sort of bribe to get them to like me/be willing to help me again.|
Except for the last couple days, a few other members of the lab have been bringing in baking/sweets, and none of the times have they offered any to me. Which is fine, I don't think it was intentional, just a product of me not being in the lab full-time. Except now I'm worried that if I bring in baking, it will be seen as an expression of 'fine, if you won't share with me, I'll just bring my own!'. TQC, will it be awkward if I bring in cookies to share after others brought in things but never offered any to me?
I'm sorry if it's a stupid question, I'm really stressed about this whole lab situation and probably not thinking straight.
