The lady I was partnered up with for a 3-month group project barfed up a vent today in class, on me.
She single-handedly took up the introduction of the essay, refused all of the group member's assistance, and wrote this gigantic 20-page thing. Great efforts were put into it, but she allowed absolutely no criticism to her work, including, I told her she forgot a comma in page 5, and she defended it like I was treading on her roadkilled dog.
Then she proceeded to ride on the fact that I stood her up on Monday night's meeting (which I assumed was cancelled since no one showed up; I met with her half a dozen times before, so what would one dinner meeting do more or less of?). It escalated to that she thinks I am criticizing her efforts with no background knowledge of the subject, and I did not do anything for the group at all. It further escalated that I am a slacker in general and the poison of the team. It further escalated, on her own words to the teacher, that I literally did not do anything, did not do any writing nor research for the project.
The fact is, she doesn't know how to use the computer, yet she insisted that she receive the essay on digital format, but she doesn't have an e-mail account. She insisted that I send it to her brother's e-mail account but she doesn't have his e-mail address. So because she didn't read it, I was assumed guilty of charge. So 5 days before the 3-month project is due, she isolated me on her own loud flame in the middle of a Wednesday morning lecture hall, and decided to kick me off her group project, blinded by her own rage, without the consent of the teacher nor other group members.
God knows, I got the flu, I came into work without a voice.
One more reason why OCAD contains a bunch of fucktards. These people are not required to be computer-literates, these people are not required to be team workers, these people are not required to be English-literates, these people are not required to be critical thinkers nor critique receivers, these people are not required to be successful researchers. These people are not required to be sober, these people are not required to contain reason. These people can be of any age, from any background of interest, from any background of (or lack of) knowledge, and these people can ruin your life.
