  • Watching this to dull the frustration of my current group-project

  • I died when he was deleting his channel after he was told it was a waste of time.

  • Welcome to 2020 where we had to complete our first group project in college without ever meeting each other in person lmao .... we had two months of time and we did everything in the last week

  • I've never been able to pick my group and get put with absolute potatoes of human beings. One of my latest ones i hade a group mates who didn't know plagiarism exists

  • i did not know placing the name second to last was an actual thing other people did

  • that comment on the name order for the person who did all the work is way too real

  • 3:03 I need to improve my tactics.

  • I love group projects! They teach me to trust no one.

  • "He was less good at problem-solving, but was bubbly and enthusiastic, while I was better at problem-solving, but filled with contempt for all human life." So basically SpongeBob and Squidward

  • 2:07 I saw what you did there

  • How is it that everyone somehow does all the work in the project?

  • 1:17 code on the girl's laptop. Did ya see that coder gang.

  • I was that one kid who did everything at home

  • yes

  • Alphabetical order on last name is how you solve it. My last name starts with an S, so will never be the last, but close to it. I can easily explain the order, so that solves that.

  • Im the weird guy. I finish 90% of the project on the day its assigned. Then let the others do the work.

  • 2:30 same

  • The leader: Usually me. I'm the one most likely to put in effort and decision making. The "I'll help": Sometimes they help me, sometimes they help the person that needs help the least. The annoying person: They're less likely to get work done, so I'll give them the easy job of typing out the Powerpoint. The problem solver: Usually the other smart people. They're usually better in a subject I'm weak in, so if I don't understand something, they will. Presentation: I'm very shy, but am willing to read a few slides of the presentation. I'll try to give the faster readers longer slides and slower readers shorter slides.

  • If I do all the work in the group project, screw putting my name 2nd last, that thing's going first.

  • 2:07 This is adorable

  • 指示を見てください。

  • I have three stages of such projects. 1. Hell, I sure hope I do enough. 2. Hell, I sure hope I do not too much. 3. Everyone is dumb except me. I should do this myself.

  • How...? How did he know about the name placement thing?

  • Well I straight up put my name first lol.

  • U mean pluto? Oh wrong video...

  • Jesus loves u all so much

  • I have been with a “Peter” recently... 🌚

  • For me, group projects always go like this: the group actively excludes me, and then they go to the teacher to whine about how I did nothing. Or I get to do all the work.

  • I always try to be the one compiling the project parts and writing the names. I put the name of those who did least at the front and the ones who did most at the back. And then my name last.

  • I once wrote the group project alone at the end It was funny and annoying to see whom the teacher liked most and least. I got a B. Someone else as well got a B. Someone got a C. And someone got an A*

  • On the last slide of the google slide put credits to the images and sources along with the fact that you wrote the entire thing also put your name first

  • BTW Japanese was 'Shiji wo mite kudasai' "please see instructions "

  • once i told my group that we needed to start the project 3weeks before deadline they didnt give a fuck so i started to work and 4 days before the deadline one dude on my group tells me to send him all of my work so he can correct every mistake i made... which is why i left their group and the couldnt finish it before deadline

  • #6 the most awkward presentation in the history of life

  • When I put the names: 1. The friend 2. The girl I like (cuz i don't want she to know) 3. The one who actually worked 4. Me 5. The one who didn't work hoping that he sees it but knowing he won't

  • You kinda miss everyone a little bit but not enough to hangout with them.. Man that hit so hard

  • A few people here are saying they are the ones who did all the work, personally i wasnt too keen on the arts and crafts part of any project including a project for arts class, id rather draw up a structural schematic for a paper mache sculpture than actually make it. Id say that out of most groups ive been in, im usually the only one that liked math and hence all sorts of "boring math gunf" would be handled by me with the expertise only a completelly retarded kid could provise such as myself, that being lots of math that make no sense to an outsider but makes perfect sense in my head while still arriving at the correct answer. Like saying 8+8 = 18 - 9 + 7 = 16. This has caused a few misunderstandings during exams because id make giant leaps of logic in my head but couldnt figure out a way to properly transcribe it into the paper.

  • Smaller explaination: pain.

  • This is actually 100% accurate, at least for engineering.

  • Nah man if I do the entire project myself my name goes first, or I’ll order the names by the amount members contributed

  • I was the peter in my group and got the highest marks 😂😂

  • Who else got PTSD from seeing the PowerPoint edit screen?

  • You forgot the part where you hate everyone in the group

  • Group progress: 1: Know each other. Just know their names. 2: Tasking. "You are gonna do this part." "But i wanted to do that part" "Yeah but he's better at it and asked first" (Repeat for 30 minutes) 3: Procrastination. 4: "Hey guys since it'd due in exactly 2 hours i'm gonna make it by myself" 5: Recieve a grade of 0-4 7-10. No, it's impossible to recieve 5's or 6's

  • "5 stage process" I already know where this is going.

  • 1:44 genius humour right there

  • If I do the work my name is going first

  • that's why i pick group mates who know nothing and will let me work in peace while being grateful for it. they might not know the skills for the assignment but are generally more enthusiastic with other work.

  • my roll in the group is always peters :( a bit to on the nose for me

  • The actual 5 stages of a group project are 1. Denial (“This isn’t going to be like last time”) 2. Anger (“Why isn’t anyone else doing anything?”) 3. Bargaining (“Well at least I can still get a passing grade”) 4. Depression (“This is due tomorrow and we barely have anything”) 5. Acceptance (“I am definitely going to fail and I’m fine with that”)

  • I swear I can steal this dude's hole identity

  • Shit I always had it second to ladt and I always finished it on my own.

  • Did I see vex robotics

  • I remember going over this so many times in my engineering classes. Lucky enough you didnt have to deal with that.

  • I'm in stage 1, but no one has responded to the group chat yet.

  • he transitions and leads into jokes so well

  • It actually feels good to pull off everything by yourself in a dysfunctional group projects. Till they complain to the prof that "you ran off" with the group's idea. Uni is a bitch

  • Group projects only exist just so teachers don't need to grade like 20 presentations. Teachers do you see the problem??

  • seems relatively accurate, but you forgot the type of person that wants to get the work done and while the rest of the group is doing stage 2 and 3 goes directly to step 4 without notifying the rest of the group to hand in, in case the "group project" falls flat and then makes their name bigger than the rest. although we are rare we are out there.

  • You forgot the procrastinating step

    • that is step 2

  • When you go to ask your friend to be in your group but there with someone else.

  • Woo

  • First stage: Second stage: 3rd stage: 4th stage: 5th stage: one person doing it alone the last night.

  • Vex be out here

  • normaly every time i am the one group project it falls on me. one year a person decided to do all the writing she didn't want me to do anything and i felt bad and then the teacher wanted us after to write how the project went. i wrote the honoust truth how they wouldn't let me do anything. yet i see them writing a paragraph on how the project went...and was nervious. like i always got A grade on my own projects. i felt so guilty how i didnt speak up back then lol. also one time we had a math project i almost go a fail grade because nobody els wrote a paper in the group except for me. i hated highschool. i did good but really didn't like the place. (sorry for the dyslexia)

  • Sadly I’m usually that second to last name.

  • A group project I had last year went a little like this: There were three of us: me, the slightly more nerdy than average guy, different guy, we’ll call him Frank, Frank was kinda like me, but slightly more extroverted and motivated, and a different guy, let’s call him John, who’s literally the worst math nerd you could ever imagine, I’m serious here, he’s in the top ten best math students of the country and he even does math during summer break each year, he is getting special assignments from the teacher that are leagues above the rest of the class. ‘We’ (read as: frank and me) started by brainstorming what we were gonna do. We divided the work and did our parts on our own, it was a coding and electrical engineering project, so I would do some research on what parts to use and how to assemble them, Frank would learn the coding. We assembled the parts together, I wasn’t very good at it, but we figured it out eventually, and the coding had to wait a little. Then we started the coding (read as: we copied it from the internet and used our basic understanding of python to add useless features like an on/off button that only turned it on and just caused an error message to turn it off.) Then we mounted the device on a Lego car because that was part of the project, this was my job and it was the most fun part. Result: it was fun but very useless

  • Wow. This video explains the last project of my last class of college (in 1995). There were four or five us working on a research paper for a Business Strategy class....the night before the paper was to be presented and turned in...the group gave me their HAND WRITTEN parts of the paper for me to type into WORD. I was up all night, no sleep, typing all night...some times typing the same paragraph 2-3 times before realizing it...took a shower in the morning drove to school, cussed my classmates out, presented the paper, and drove home almost crashing because I had been awake for 38 hours straight. It's those experiences that make you become the dictator of future groups like when I decided to get a Masters degree :-/

  • and i'm always the one who does nothing

    • freloader-the person who improves the project by not getting involved and letting thoughts who know what there doing do the work

    • You should be disappointed in yourself

  • why is nobody talking about how adorable the measurement scene was?

    • LOOK AT THE DUDE HE LOOKED SO HAPPY AND PLEASED ONCE HE COULD MEASURE THE OTHER SIDE! (I'm sorry for yelling also my sense of humour and satisfaction is flawed)

    • Why was it adorable?

  • Oh God the NYLT flashbacks

  • Let's be fair here, We are all the kids who never did the work, And just chilled out while the smart kid did all the work.

  • 0:35 指 示 を 見 て く だ さ い = Please look at the instructions Brought to you by Yandex image translation.

    • 新しい漢字は感謝しています。

  • Group Project: draw 5 rectangles My Group: 0:05

  • This Hits not close to home but directly to the home in my third year in college a made four group projects all by myself and what is interesting is my name second to last in all of them I don't know why I did that 😂

  • *explains a dom in the context of a group project* so basically group projects are orgies?

  • my group projects: meet read the book write about book share ideas do test about book get 47/50 or higher

  • My last group project involved me getting paired with a known procrastinator on making a presentation. I made the first half fairly early on, and proceeded to wait until presentation day for my partner to finish it at literally the last minute. It worked out surprisingly well, especially considering I never met up or talked with them once during the whole process.

  • I am in fact the guy in the group project that has no idea whats going on, when I do however, I can do a fair share, but usually I don't so

  • My group processes: - If I'm with friends: 1. Procrastinate until the week before. 2. Start doing it but we end up talking about video games during the 3 hours we should have been working. 3. Start from scratch. 4. Do it the 3-1 days left. 5. We clean up everything and make a really bad presentation. If I'm with stupid people (almost all the time): 1. Talk about it. 2. We give each one a part. 3. I do my part. 4. If lucky at least one person have done his/her part. 5. I do everyone's part and/or start 'em all from scratch. If I'm with normal/clever people: 1. We divide the work. 2. Something goes wrong. 3. Someone fixes that thing and thinks he's smart so becomes arrogant and mandatory. 4. That person doesn't give me anything more to do because they think they can do it by themselves. 5. We finish the project and that person says I haven't done almost nothing and gets annoyed for some reason. That's why I prefer to do things alone.

  • Group projects are the absolute worst especially when your ducking global teacher thinks it’s a good idea to work with a group online with people id never talk to

  • If you meet in college after hours, don’t forget the all-important “dorming”.

  • The whole night before part of a group project just for the whole team to fail despite you doing everything part hits hard. Except they all still manage to get a grade above you just because they could actually present it without hiding in the corner.

  • I Just do everything

  • End of the project group evaluations: -Guy who does most or all the work scores everyone else equally -Guy who doesn't show up gives everyone top scores -Guy who did a moderate amount of work gives everyone low scores -Guy who presented and answered the most bullshit questions in the most dodging ways doesn't score at all Reality: Everyone takes the uber lyft driver pack (i 5 stars you 5 stars) and we all go our separate ways.

  • Just graduated as an engineer, and can confirm we learned the forming storming morning performing adjourning thing. James learned something!

  • When I was in my third year of college, we had a group project for marketing class. We had 5 members including myself. We all did our work except one member who never responded to our messages and was never in class. The night before the project was due, she suddenly texts us telling us to send all our work to her and she will turn it in for us. Of course, we never responded to her. Our professor was already aware of this issue, and we essentially told her to go fk herself. She ended up failing the class and couldnt graduate (lol). I was just simply amazed at the audacity this girl had trying to take credit for our work. Smh.

  • What

  • bruh they taught us about forming storming norming performimg at national youth leadership training

  • “You kind of miss everyone a little bit, but not enough to hang out with them” I feel that

  • Unintentionally learning about psych is my favorite ❤️
