Found this gem today under a group project from my group (there are four of us, and we are grouped together because the professor did it alphabetically).
"Good Evening, Ladies!
I am just now getting back to the discussion board to learn that you all have decided to submit OUR story, without including MY story too. Unless there is a communication that I missed (which may be possible since I have had the flu for a week), it was my understanding that the due date for this project was Sunday, November 13th. While I realize it is close, I don't recall the group agreeing to a set deadline for submission, nor do I recall any communication about automatic exclusion from the group at any time. I know we all have different schedules, interests, ways of learning and studying, I know we bring different life experiences, belief systems, baggage, wit, drama, nonsense, values, morals, thoughts and opinions. That said, the common thread that should have held OUR story together is that we are women striving to complete a goal and had to depend on one another to see it come to fruition. I am disheartened to say the least. I wouldn't want anyone's grade to suffer from anything that I did or did not do, but I don't want mine to suffer because you all did not want to wait. I guess no hard feelings, just disappointed. Sometimes part of being in a "group project" environment is learning how to jump out and take a lead when required, learning how to meet a specific deadline and sometimes learning how to wait on those that may not have the same studying styles and habits that are the same as those that you possess. MY story is attached."
I'm sorry it's so long. I read this under our posting which we turned in early and was absolutely shocked. This person is not in our group. We are all in the beginning of the alphabet when she nearly touches Z and our professor has the lists in a special folder. I e-mailed her and cc'd the professor asking her to to delete the post because she is mistaken and it is rude and to please contact the group she belongs to.
