A friend post doc-ing in the US told me that they were going to have to fund some replacement glassware that they broke. Is this normal?I have broken lots of glassware, and I was never once asked to pay for the broken items by a PI. I've never heard of this. Readers, have you ever had:
- a PI ask you to pay for
- a broken piece of a equipment
- when you were either an undergraduate, graduate student or a postdoc in an university research lab
- in the United States?
- If so, what were the circumstances? Did you pay up?
