“This pandemic is exactly why I hated group projects in school”

The 2019–20 coronavirus pandemic required cooperation from everyone. The situation reminded many people of group projects in school (where some people did no work).

“For anyone who hated ‘group projects’ in school, the CoronaVirus is anxiety inducing. Your success rate is dependent upon some moron who doesn’t pull his weight, doesn’t pay attention, and spends his entire Spring Break partying instead of doing the work” was posted on Twitter by Stefanie Williams on March 26, 2020.

Everything about this social distancing experiment makes me remember why I hated group projects in elementary school. And middle school. And high school. And college.
And life, now, I guess. #justfollowthefreakingrules #StayHome #DoYourJob

Social Distancing: Every group project you ever hated in school, but for keeps. (This isn’t original, but I dont remember where I saw it and it bears repeating, because DOWN WITH GROUP PROJECTS)

#coronavirus and people still refusing to #socialdistance reminds me of getting assigned to your group for a group project in high school… And it’s reminding me why I so hated that process.

People not wearing masks is taking me back to group projects in school, which I hated, because there’s always someone who just won’t do what they’re supposed to do, and they’re messing it up for the rest of us. Stop being selfish and just WEAR A DAMN MASK!!! Face with medical mask #StopTheSpread

This pandemic is exactly why I hated group projects in school.  Always a slacker ruining all the work the rest put in.

The people refusing to wear one is the reason why I hated doing any group project in school. :/
