Our anatomy lab building is open to us 24/7 – we just have to change into scrubs to go into the lab itself. These scrubs are kept in lockers in the hallway, though, so we have to take a hike down to the other side of the floor to actually change in a bathroom.
I would just like to share that, no matter how sure you are that no one else is studying on a Saturday night, it is probably not a good idea to change right in the hallway. Even if your other two female friends agree with you that this is an awesome time-saver.
Or – if you are set on getting half-naked in the hallway – perhaps make sure that you don’t start talking really loudly. First, you might say a word that sounds very close to the name of one of your lab partners.
Secondly, he might just hear you and open the lab door to say hi – and there you are, standing in your underwear.
I just hope residency applications ask about community service. “Living my life as a cautionary tale to others” should about cover it.
