My lab partner and I were collecting some data, and I went to plot it on the computer. I told my lab partner to start the second part of the experiment while I was at it, and due to a fault in the computer it was taking longer than usual. When I finally got back to him, he had collected absolutely no data. He might as well have just been sitting there the whole time.
Containing my anger, I started working with him on the experiment. I took the experimental data with him, and this time, he decided he'd do something responsible and plot the data. I updated my record book, when I wondered what was taking him so long. Turns out he was putting the data into a command line. Not saving it as a file, just putting all the different data points into one command line, taking up about 50 lines of code, and hitting run. If it went wrong, he would simply do it again.
It was a long project we were working on, and we eventually had to come back to it and draw up our data later. I was saying to the staff that we hadn't yet finished the data plot, but then, surprise surprise, he comes in and says he got the plot the night before, and he didn't tell me a thing! Anyway, that was that, the stuff was handed in, and it turned out the data wasn't plotted correctly. Hence, he had single handedly destroyed the project. What a genius.

Tell us your unbelievable lab partner story!

Smacking my ass as I bent down to pick up an automated pipette. I got him back!

But I think the number one most annoying and dumbest thing a lab partner has Done is not bother writing down data and then we have to make up some stupid numbers or when you expect them to just read the protocol and they can't even get that I right and end up missing important parts out

The most stupid thing my lab partner has ever done was choose me as a lab partner.

Somehow my lab partner once managed to create a little fireball with one of the bunsen burners. My teacher then started shouting at us about how we 'almost burnt down the science labs' :rolleyes:

If I am honest, I would probably be that annoying lab partner, seeing that I single handedly managed to>>

*Almost have my teacher give me a C for my chemistry ISA experiment after making TWO failed attempts.
*Break a 1.5m high test tube full of oil, sending oil all over the lab.
*Set the entire table on fire by breaking my bunsen burner.

I remember at my first year at Uni when I was doing Earth Science I was partnered with this girl and neither of us had any idea what the heck we were doing so we just spent the session laughing at each other struggling trying to get through it lol
