FYI it was an honest mistake and the paper was only turned in 8 minutes late...after some frantic talks with my teacher she agreed not to penalize my group and just deduct points from me. Lesson learned!!

Exactly why I've always hated group projects and usually volunteer to do all the work myself; you can't trust anyone. Especially in school when it comes to your grades.

Must be fun tripple checking everything you do, another option is to start being more aware.

It's not your fault OP, your entire group is equally responsible to make the sure the project was upload and submitted on time

The point of group work is to divide up the responsibilities and put your faith in the other people to do their jobs. If OP's job was to submit the assignment, then it's entirely OP's fault. The other group members shouldn't have to hold his hand and constantly monitor whether or not he's doing his part.

I'm with 6 on this, when I was in school, no matter who was supposed to turn in the assignment, I always made sure that I had a copy and submitted it as well. It was part of my grade too and I'll be damned if I'm going to fail because some fucktard forgot to submit homework!

It depends on the assignment. For my media projects, we had to export our films onto a hard drive and then hand in the drive. Only one person could actually possess a copy of the film, so we had to put our faith in that person to hand it in. Outside of physical restraints, if all members of every group decided to submit the assignment, just in case, then our tutors would have been bombarded with hundreds of repeat files. It's not exactly feasible for everyone to start handing in the same assignment on the slim chance that one of their members is an idiot.

The amount of down votes you received is indicative of the amount of children/teens on this app. A responsible adult would make sure it's turned in. (yes... being an adult means being responsible... age has no bearing in this case...)

Honestly, I think you should man up, go to the professor and say that it's your fault for not making the deadline, and hope they give your peers an extension. Don't make your classmates/friends suffer for your fuck up. Plus, doing this will make you feel and be a better person.
