So, this semester I was required to take a business class which is both irrelevant to my field and has an incredibly frustrating instructor and is full of people with whom I have absolutely nothing in common.

Of COURSE, there's a group project that's worth 30% of our grade. We have to write a business plan (we're doing one for a business one of the group members already owns) and do a presentation as though to investors (I HATE THIS CLASS).

I've been trying to get my group members to have a meeting (ONE!) since the middle of January when we were assigned together, but they keep ducking me. We have done nothing for this project. We haven't even talked about it. They're just too busy, apparently, which makes me wonder why they are taking this class if they don't have time to do the work.

On Monday, I finally managed to schedule a meeting, on campus, for today. I'm pretty sure we can get most of the planning and work done via e-mail, so long as we have at least one in-person meeting.

Just now? The guy who owns the business and actually knows anything about the market we're supposed to be presenting on? Sent us an e-mail saying that he decided to take a job this morning instead of coming to the meeting.


I'm not at all sure we're going to be able to do anything without him. So we're meeting to... sit around and complain about how we can't get any real work done? I can't even just take over and do it all myself (as I admit I have done before when saddled with non-performing group members), because I know basically nothing about either the particular business or, y'know, business. This is why I volunteered to write the report! And now after three months of not being able to get anything started, I don't have time to do all the work, because I foolishly assumed that a group of business majors would be providing at least some support.

Fuck, fuck, FUCK.

Dude, that's a whole lot of suck.

I am so glad none of my classes require group works, because I hate them with a passion.

It sounds like you should ditch doing his business and just pick another thing, love! Because this is bullshit, and if the guy whose business you're supposed to work on is this much of a douchebag, screw that.

It really bugs me when people do things like that; I find it incredibly selfish of them. I hope something gets worked out for you!

sometimes your 'i weep for the species' tag is heartbreakingly accurate.
