Don't you just hate it when you have a group assignment and someone says that they will be responsible for doing this and the next day, they did not do it? That just pisses me off and I would never trust anyone in a group assignment because how can I believe that they will do it? It is bull crap. What do you think about this and have you had this before? I am afraid to see this happen again so I am going to do it for myself in case if that person forgets again.
Yeah, that happened to me a lot in high school. I was stuck doing most of the work because everyone else 'forgot.' I swear, they sometimes picked me for the soul PURPOSE of doing most of the work. Ugh.
This tends to happen to me a lot. I am usually stuck with the LD kids because my teachers like to challenge me. I hope that they do the small part I give them but no, they cannot handle it. I usually have this happen to me every other project, which really stinks.
I just typically do all of the work that is assigned regardless if it is a group project. I then pretend to my group like I only did my part of the work when it comes time to share and what not. Then if a part is missing I will add it in at the end before it is turned in and no one is the wiser.
I really dislike group projects that are done outside of class. You always get the person who doesn't do their part of the work or does a half effort job at it. I tend to want to double check everyone else's work because I don't want to get docked on something they do wrong. It annoys people because it makes them feel like I think they are stupid. I get why they feel that way, but that isn't the case. It is just if I get docked points, it is going to because I messed up somewhere, and not due to something out of my control.
Like they say, if you want it done right, you do it yourself. Do the part of the project that you think you can't trust anyone else with, even if it may be the hardest part. It's better to do a bad job and get some grade instead of having nothing and getting no grade.
Usually I get stuck with the group who has no idea what's going on, with me being the only one that has somewhat of an idea. One time I had an assignment with a partner where we had to write together an energy audit that did through email. We both had our separate parts to do, and two of the sections I needed to do relied on what they had wrote and what order. They not only ignored my emails asking what they had written, but had sent a half completed audit to the teacher saying I didn't do any of my work.
I hate doing group assignments. While this would be a good reason to, that's not it. Fortunately, there is rarely homework like that, so I never have to deal with it. When it's school work, I try my best to be working alone. Makes it so much easier.
