18 Thoughts You’ll Have During A Group Project

School group projects have garnered a pretty tough rep as being The Absolute Worst. Usually, I feel sympathy for things that have bad reputations–like seventh graders and gas station milkshakes–but, having done a fair share of them in my time, group projects get exactly 0.00% of my pity. After all, as the old adage goes, “When I die, I want my group project members to lower me into my grave so they can let me down one last time.”

The one good thing about group projects is that pretty much everyone has experienced one at some point or another, so we all understand the deep, existential angst that comes along with them. Thus, we all have pretty much the same thoughts during the course of a group project:

1. “Oh, cool, the teacher just announced a group project. That’s a joke, right?”

2. “Nope. Not a joke.”

nope

3. “We at least get to pick our group members, right?”

4. “Nope. It’s all assigned. Cool.”

cool

5. “But how, exactly, did I get assigned to work with the three people that A) I legitimately cannot stand and B) I’m pretty sure will do literally no work?”

6. “The project is 50% of my grade too. GREAT. I’M FINE WITH THIS. HAHAHA.”

7. “It’s okay. I’ll just explain in a totally *chill* email that I’m going to be nice and divide it all up between us so we have equal amounts of work. This will totally work.”

8. “Why the HECK is nobody responding?!?!? Was I not chill enough???”

9. “Okay, I’ll just corner everyone in class to force some answers out of them.”

10. “Guys. We ALL HAVE BUSY SCHEDULES. NO ONE WANTS TO DO THIS. LET’S JUST GET IT OVER WITH.”

11. “Jeez. What’s everyone’s problem? I’m just trying to get this project done.”

12.”You know what? I don’t even care anymore. What will losing 50% of my grade do to me, really?”

13. “That will hurt me a lot, actually.”

14. “Oh, good, one kid sent me an email!”

15. “Cool. It’s just a note saying that he can’t get his stuff done tonight, but he’ll ‘try’ to do it before class tomorrow.”

16. “Welp, I just did everyone’s work. I hate everything.”

17. “Since I did all the work, I’m going to put my name first on the PowerPoint. Hahahaha! Retribution is mine!”

18. “Well, this project did teach me one thing. I can literally never trust anyone ever again.”
