A breath of fresh air...Well, I'm sure that you are all on the edge of your seats wondering about that smell...
Rather disappointingly, it WASN'T a decomposing body. It turned out that it was a vintage pint of milk left in there by a post-doc some weeks ago. The lockers were opened by "the lady with the keys", searched and the offending pint of milk disposed of. Of course, in true comedy style nobody thought to ask the owners of the lockers if they had any idea what the smell might be, so when the first locker was opened and a plastic bag containing sandwiches was spied, Jane the Technician's freshly-made packed lunch was already in the Clinical Waste bin before a second locker was opened to reveal a greenish looking pint of semi-skimmed.
Needless to say the post-doc responsible has been appropriately chastised. I wonder how long it will be until somebody can ask "who's on milk duty this week" and not be sent to this poor girl...
FOR YOUR PERUSAL
