As promised, here are my issues:
PD#1: He just needs more than I can give. It just feels like I give and I give and I give, but he just won't be satisfied. Why can't see see MY needs? Why is it all about HIM?
PD#2: Use the "&" to run the model in the BACKGROUND! You don't have to sit there at your desk the whole time it is running! Emacs! Use emacs! Not pico!!!! Who uses pico??? (In case you don't know, pico is the editor for pine, which I am sure enlightens a lot of you!)
PD#3: Uh.... Hmmm.... Stop fixing the model and do some science? Uh, I guess you can't do science with a crappy broken model that your adviser made.... Uh....
Ok, that was probably unsatisfying. It was unsatisfying for me too. I just want to rant and rant and rant, but I don't feel like I can/should.... I am mostly frustrated with PD#1 having intense personal issues, which I don't want to deal with.
I have to say that I don't have to "deal" with many personal issues at work, though. I would say that 90% of the students/post docs that I have worked with have brought very little personal stuff to me. Maybe it is because I am a super-dick and they can see the "I don't give a sh*t" tattoo just under my hairline. Just kidding. It is really tattooed across my left buttock.
