Goddamnit. The missing data WAS my fault. Upside: only the bit we accidentally destroyed together is missing now and that was only one replicate, so just proceeding with what we have is far more feasible. All the angst over academic integrity wasted. Downside: oh, how very many ways do I suck. I was even kind of bitchy about it when they suggested that we all double check because I was annoyed that they took more than 2 weeks after the experiment to send me their data when I had sent them mine on the day it was collected. I made sure to send it immediately because I was was scared of losing it and screwing us all over. That was a good move, since the hardcopy was in fact lost at the point when it was requested that I double check. I just found it. It was me. I have screwed this one up royally.
I at least used to be pretty good at only shooting myself in the foot. I would go to great lengths to keep others out of the range of fire and somehow things that seemed impossible to do for myself would get done for them. Whelp, guess I can't claim that anymore.

Because my part is the introduction and some of the results, basically everything in the report needs to be adjusted to match. If it was less late bowing out, taking the zero and apologizing profusely for the extra work they would have to do to write a report on their own might have been the most appropriate option. Our final exam is tomorrow. Clearly, I will not be asking them to put any further thought into this. So I guess I rewrite it all and send them a copy to review before handing it in tomorrow.

Tomorrow I will think about what this means for my enrollment in spring session classes.

Frustrating, but hey, at least you have the data now! Slap that report together, cram a teensy bit for the exam, then go to bed!

Just think: this time tomorrow, that class will be DONE!

Oh, that sucks. Like, big-time sucks. Messing up things for myself is bad enough, but when it involves others, I HATE that. I totally feel for you.

Hoping you were able to get everything done, and that the exam went well. Where are you going and what are you taking?
