    I'm sure many NTers have been in a similar situation. Group work sucks especially when you have two group members who are buddy buddy and wants everybody to meet at a certain time to try to compile an assignement when this could be easily handled via Skype,ovoo, etc. My group members wanted me to sit on campus two and a half hours while they finished with their classes and then spend another 2 hours doing the assignment[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG], when we could have made a GoToMeeting conference and knocked this out. I went home and told them I would hit them on FaceTime but I am not about to sit in the car just sitting there waiting on them.

    Share your terrible experiences

    Yeah, with things like Google Docs/skype etc .. it shouldn't be hard to put something together outside of class.

    There was an instance where we had 1 kid that just wouldn't do any work. We told the prof. He just told us to keep working and not say anything to the kid. Our group goes up to present except he tells the kid who didn't work to sit down. Gave him a 0 for the assignment :lol:
