I'm working on a paper to avoid an awkward girl.

In my first block class we were assigned a paper to write as a group. I was going to be in a group of three, with my best friend and some other girl, but three other people made their group official before we could, and i got split off by the teacher. I was paired with a really awkward girl. She never talks. Ever. At all. So here i am, doing the paper by myself a day early. I figure i can say i thought it was due monday so i just did it myself. Not that it matters because i'd basically be doing it myself in class tomorrow anyway, except then the awkward girl would be taking credit for it too. I'm doing my homework early and lying about it so i dont have to deal with her. 1) How bad of a person does this make me? 2) Ever done something similar?

I never intended to screw her over, but it's certainly not helping her. I mean the assignment was given at the end of class friday, and my choices were either start it solo over the weekend or put it off completely and work around the awkwardness tomorrow. In all honesty i think it would have been stupid to avoid the assignment and go in unprepared tomorrow. And i have no way of contacting this girl to work on it as a team. And i dont know how to go about team writing a paper. But still. Even though it was the smart thing to do, i feel like id screw her over to turn in my own paper tomorrow.

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] The EAKLE I wouldnt say that im an asshat. But this decision was just undoubtedly asshatty. The teacher upset me by splitting me off form my group, and by making the project poorly, so i just decided to do it my way and avoid awkwardness. Which turned out to be the thing an asshat would do.[/quote]It happens to everyone. It's just a part of school. But seriously, you're kind of completely screwing her over. Whether she realizes she wants to have some kind of social interaction or not, you're robbing the experience from her (yeah, so why doesn't she just interact with other people? It's not always that easy and not everyone's good at it), and you're also not allowing her to learn and experience the work. It's one thing to be stuck with a group who doesn't care to participate, it's quite another to reject them. [Edited on 10.07.2012 9:08 PM PDT]

  • I don't see the problem here. Couldn't you just not tell her you already wrote a paper, try to work on it tomorrow, and if she's uncooperative (or you're just too socially inept to convince someone to work with you for one class period) you already have a written paper.

  • Awkward girl is actually just [url=http://iranpoliticsclub.net/photos/nazi-girls3/images/Hitler%20Girl%20-%20Nazi%20Youth%20Defense.jpg]her[/url]. She probably wants you to talk to her. Shamefu dispray.

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] Darth Ra 7365 How does a group write one paper?[/quote]Exactly. I have no tolerance for people who don't do work, and i know i'd be doing all the work in this situation. The project, like every other project in the class, was poorly planned. So i figured id just take care of it myself and get it over with.
