ACTUALLY, it is plenty of time to forget and procrastinate. Oh, and another thing, thanks for the group project, because nobody will take ownership - besides me, and even if they do help out, guess who is going to muck through all the crap to get it to sound cohesive - me. Thanks teach, nice work on being a total clown. I wanna grab your nose and make a 'honk' sound, but I can't because of certain social boundaries.
Needless to say, I have been put into another stellar group for a paper. I started on the paper about ten days before it was due. It is due this Thursday. Did I mention that it is worth 30% of our overall grade? So, we decided to break into into sections, which is fine if everyone owns up to it.
Tonight I get this email: I have completed questions 3 & 4.
What do you want, a hug, a toy? Good boy, you did something? WE DELEGATED THE WORK! This was the intent.
Then I get this: I'm not going to get to my section until Thursday morning.
So I wrote this email draft, which I won't send: Great job team, way to do what is exactly expected of you. I am so unimpressed with your lack of initiative and conviction. I appreciate you waiting till the last minute to get this project done and then send out emails that seem to be asking for some approval. I don't need you to check in with me. I need you to do the work.
I am probably overreacting.
