From our own experience, we all know that when we have had to do teamwork, there is never a lack of bullies who see in this the possibility of being foolish, so they always end up leaving all the effort to the most responsible.
But one student who posted his story on Reddit found a way to make a fool of his lazy teammates. This is his story. Without needing to give them away, the boy put together a little strategy to reveal that they never collaborated with the project.
The young student reported that he takes a class in which team research projects are a large part of the final grade for the subject. That’s why it was important not to miss. But to his misfortune, he was stuck with the three worst people that could have touched him in his class.
The boy says that since it was a qualification that was undoubtedly necessary, he had to do all the research work himself, put together the presentation, drew up the project cards and prepared all the details that were needed.
I tried to talk to them and tell them that they needed to do their part. Ignored. I sent them tasks to do. ignored. I’d try to schedule meetings, they’d say they’d come, then leave me alone in the library. This happened from the beginning.
However, even so, the young man wanted to give them one last chance. The night before presenting the project, he asked them to get together to organize the exhibition because the teacher made it clear to them that they couldn’t read anything and it wasn’t about memorizing either, so he organized them some cards with the small part that they would have to say. each, but none came to the appointment.
At this point, I’m furious and decide they can do it themselves, which means they’d go up there, knowing nothing to say other than the little bit of information I gave them, and they couldn’t even say bullshit because they didn’t investigate anything. The thing is, if we fail without having an excuse, we all fail at the project.
It was there that the boy came up with the idea of making an excuse. When he was on his way to class he pretended that he had a flat tire, so he went and bought a tire to have evidence and make his story more real, while he sent an email to the teacher where he explained what happened. He replied that he would have to present his project alone in another hour. Finally, he learned that the bullies had completely failed, so they would most likely fail the class.
