Nobody likes to find or place themselves is an uncomfortable situation.
But sometimes these cannot be avoided.
The class I attend to in the university is coming to an end
and we have a final paper and presentation to do as a group.
My group is made up by 5 women:
a public servant, a nurse, two teachers and me.
Two of them kind of disappeared in the process and I
gave them the bad news: they had to find another group
because we had finished the paper.
(actually we're 60% done, we have done all the research - it's due in a week)

One said she would do the powerpoint and presentation ?!
That's easy: just read all we had done and that was it.
It did not seem fair.
As you can only imagine - it was an awful situation to be in and they
were both very upset to say the least.

After they left, one of the other group participants said she was remorseful.
So, I started to feel kind of bad, specially because I did most of the talking.
But, then I figured out I should not be responsible for someone else's lack of work ethic or responsibility.
As a nurse or as a teacher - you should have your act together by now.
Besides, we're all just starting - this automatically sends a message for future group work:
you work, you're in - you don't: you are out.
