If Penny Would Work In Leonard's Laboratory..

Recommended Posts

How would she do? What do you think .. :D Could she learn some basics to work as an assistant.

I am sure the University would frown upon this. You can't just hire your gf to be a lab assistant. They do have jobs at Universities for spouses/partners of faculty or Head Administration but they never work in the same department let alone under the other spouse.

Typically lab assistants or research assistants, or even SA or GA positions go to students that are in enrolled at the University in that major or closely related major and are mostly not paid anyway or pay very very low, pretty much minimum wage.

Hehehehehehe, I'm quite sure that neither Penny or Leonard would consider it work being under the other.

To realize how unlikely this would be all one has to do is look at The Vacation Solution. Sheldon was reduced to washing beakers, due to his lack of training in the biological sciences, even though he has had quite bit of various kinds of scientific training. Penny, who lacks any kind of scientific training would be a hazard in the lab.

There's also the fact that she couldn't even recognize an electric pencil sharpener on sight...

I think you need some sort of calling to do justice to a job like this to be honest.

Bad idea to work with your other half too, no escape, there'd be murder. ;)

Penny would just do menial task, and Leonard would probably get distracted and get little to no work done.

Leonard would be a nervous wreck, he already gets confused when she just bends down in front of him.  She thinks he is cute so she can't help teasing and flirting with him.  Yeah that would last about a week, if that.  It would much easier for Leonard to work as a science consultant on a movie Penny was doing.

I don't think Penny would be a good choice for that job. Since she knows nothing about science or physics, she would just be doing menial tasks all day. Leonard would still be working on experiments by himself
