  • 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 group work is so much better. 1- I do all the work because my IQ is more than all of theirs combined And that's it

  • 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

  • I literally did the "last but one in the name list" several times

  • 2:00 The girls chart

  • Jesus loves u all so much!

  • Cool. The first 4 are the same as the ones I learnt at NYLT...

  • I can relate to Peter

  • the fact that i was just in a group and there was a guy named peter who did nothing

  • I was second to last, I did much of the work because I was the smart one.

  • I see someone had to to take eco and management as part of their course

  • this is a funny one. XD I had to stop eating a few times not to choke myself

  • Unintentionally learning about psych is my favorite ❤️

  • I feel targeted...

    • I swear I see more and more cubing pp theses days

  • Nah this is all wrong 1.groups is made up of like 3-5 people depending on project 2.there is one guy who doesnt say anything and just awkwardly stand there another who is bossy and that one kid who knows everything and cringes at this process 3. The only time you are actually working is at the last day

  • Because everyone wants 80% of their total coursework, and therefore their future, residing on the combined efforts of idiots. Imagine if you could select a University that had no group work...

  • 2:33 why is this so relatable and funny XD

  • 0:44 指示を見てください - *”Look at the instructions”*

  • I didn’t realize I did the second to last name thing until now lmao I checked some old presentations and fair enough my name was second to last on every single one

  • The name second to last is my exact philosophy when I’ve been in that scenario lol.

  • I’m terrible leader but I also like to get things done as soon as possible so everyone f*cking loathes me

  • 0:58 Gotta be honest that one is just how I live life

  • The School-groupwork is the worst thing in school because everyone has different ideas so it you dont make progress

  • Sometimes you get the guy who doesn't give a shit and just complains.

  • Well, I'm the guy who doesn't give a f on what the theme is gonna be if the topic in general is not interesting. I just let teammates to decide everything and then just flow with others. Sometimes I end up doing most of the work :^/

  • I'ma be truthful and say that I'm actually not the person who does all the work

  • "The person with the name second to last is the one that made the whole thing the night before" SO.ACCURATE!

  • And people don’t understand why I want to work alone...

  • this is too accurate

  • Is that 3A companies refference?

  • 2:34-2:38 is so me

  • Group work was a pain in the ass to me, especially in superior

  • after working for some months + all the night to get a 98/100 for a group of 4 people, one of these asked me the file to change some colors, after one year I noticed my name was moved last, still today I am looking for pattern (alphabetic order, beauty etc.) but I can not.

  • Entering your name second to last is too real

  • I used to like group projects when I was young because they seemed easy... Then I realised I was the one groupmate who didn't do work.

  • I was put up in the Grade 9 Committee when it was started. People didn’t want a structure so it was caos. They started a messanger group etc and we were to plan a disco for the Grades 4-6. 2 weeks before the disco nothing was done except the date when it was planned to. So I got annoyed because no one acctually took it in a formal way of presenting, planning or acctually ask the Principle if this was okay. I took the lead and said that I would fix everything. I was put as the Chairperson of the Committee(by my self but in a tactical manner as it was time to step up). I also claimed the position as Event Chief of Staff commanding this whole event. People didn’t like it but in the next few days I was ready to present for the principle the hierarchical structure, the plans and so on. I assigned roles depending on the persons best interest(survey). I was at the very top -allongside the Department Heads, Chief Informations Officer and all Sections Executives. It was a very fun project as I made the administrative part. The others who worked hard on the frontline were the absolute stars. I congradulated nd awarded them for their outstanding performences. We earned around 7k. Just one disco for around 100 people

  • My name is also James!

  • Why is the group naming so accurate😂😂😂

  • Group projects are when everybody else in the class suddenly turns retarded and you really want to do everything yourself so it doesn't turn out like a shitshow but either the other people in your group get bored and make you let them do some of the work (ruin some of the work you've already done) (also usually this is when you're working with younger students or when you have actual scheduled lessons to do it and they're just sitting around doing nothing) or they use you to get a good grade and you feel that feeling you get when somebody else takes credit for your work

  • 1:17 lol is that vex v4?

  • Everyone is trash and thinks they're the best. That's what id call it.

  • The steps 1-4 are done 5 days before due date

  • You forgot the dlc dealing with that one guy who dose nothing but when he is forced to it looks trash so we just let him do nothing

  • i've never seen such an accurate video before

  • A couple years ago I found this video entertaining. I'm coming back to this because, not only am I in a group project, but my course also touches on this. Thank you, Casually. Thank you.

  • No group projects are just hell

  • Just finished 2 groupworks on time with 7 people other time with 14

  • James do you have a Tesla??

  • i never get to the third stage with the full contingent of my group, as i have usually killed everyone else for being so annoying and lazy. coincidentally, this is why i was never on “survivor.”

  • Seems like this comment section is mainly people who did everyone else’s work... it’s a bit fishy

  • Literally every group project ever in college.

  • 0:55 “While this can be pretty hot, it’s not in this context.” Me: *Wait-*

  • College, where everyone is smarter than you except the people in your group project.
