    Angry Not Pulling Their Weight

    I don't usually air my dirty laundry online but...when 2 people in a group of 4 do 80-90% of the work for the project that includes a 15-page lab report and a PowerPoint presentation. And one of those people doing the work is you. And one of the others is holding the references for ransom, so you can't turn it in because of risk of plagarism.



    It is then you know the frustrations of "people not doing their fare share."
    "And with his eye of compassion
    He saw his enemies
    Like unto himself,
    And he learned love.
    Then, he was answered."

    Sounds like a superior needs to do their job and bust some ass or toss them out the door.

    Just a personal note. I prefer the word "supervisor" to the word "superior" because I have had supervisors that could not be regarded as superior to a common garden slug.

    I have worked with people like that. I just walk away. When they ask why I tell them that I'm not into "games" & they are wasting my time. And I have no problem with telling my boss when asked why something wasn't finished exactly the reason why.

    Those people exist in every job/profession.....only, they don't see themselves the same way, in fact, when confronted the argument will always be....."I do MORE than anyone else!"

    I worked with a girl like that, she sat around, pretending to be busy but, when we ALL started comparing notes and, finally went to our supervisor, the lazy, do nothing accused us all of being backstabbers.

    I walked out, quit a job on the spot, because the little twit who had been hired before me, was put in charge ( temporarily) and, it went to her head and, she started ordering everyone around, barking orders then, she'd go up front, sit on her ass and, call her friends on the phone.

    The job wasn't a good fit, anyway, I had more experience than the little twit, I was just unlucky enough to have been hired after her.

    Sounds like some of the team members need to learn how to deal with dickheads. You should rely on supervisors, superiors, the government, or a god to handle it for you.
