Can't Be Fixed

When I was younger, I hated working in a group because nobody was ever interested in getting anything done except me. Honestly, this never failed: I was the only one who ever did any work. Or, even worse, other kids did work, but then they asked me to do nothing, and then got mad because I wasn't contributing.

I don't know why I have such a difficult time working in a group at this point in my life. Maybe I'm just a control freak. Or maybe I don't know how to compromise. Those two seem the most plausible at the moment. Either way, I guess some things never changed.

i have always felt the same way about working in groups. in college, group work is the absolute worst. it seems i always get paired with the last people i would ever want to do a project with, because as you say they either a) do nothing or b) do everything and then get mad at me for "not helping." grrrrr. working alone is where it's at for me!
