I HATE group projects!!!!!!!!!!!

OMG, could these people be any worse??? I have the fun task of organizing everything into one smooth paper. Unfortunately, these idiots gave me a bunch of worthless words. Of course, I asked for everything to be sent to me by last Thursday. When do I get the final portion? Tonight. I'd like to get an A in this class, and the final grade depends mainly on this paper and presentation. Oh, I also asked for PowerPoint slides from everyone. Did I get them? Of course not. So, I now get to rewrite the paper and create a slide show for the presentation in order to assure that I get an A in the course. That's one for each of the idiots in my group. ********!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I know that feeling all toooo well. it's annoying, obnoxious and you work your ass off to get an A, but will the rest of the group get the same grade as you? i hate when that happens. good luck with it.

This is the kind of crap that I have to rewrite:
----------------
They have to send 50,000 tons a month of steel and zinc to a bigger company to process the coils, making them pay the company as well as lost profit.

We learned that the price of steel today that they sell a ton is around $800, and a year ago it was $200 so they have to closely calculate the same amount of difference so they make a profit.

Heartland Steel became bankrupt for various reasons but it pretty much dealt with the fact that their budget wasn’t handled correctly because they spent more than they received.
--------------
Somebody, PLEASE shoot me!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Luckily, we have a peer evaluation form regarding everyone's performance, which will hopefully affect their grades on the project. I know what the hell I'm going to say about these idiots.

Captain, I'm in the same boat frequently. I'm in Grad School and amazingly the quality of written information is not as bad as that which undergrads provide, but its still piss poor. I feel for ya, dude, hang in there till graduation and you can wash your hands of the lazy, for the most part.

Profs think these experiences are real life, but they're far from it. The lazy drag everyone down.

Now, if you could fire people, that would be awesome.

You sound pretty smart. Heck, you sound downright brilliant. What classes are you taking in Grad School?
