sidldaking tells us more.
To follow up on the FML, I complained to my teacher and informed him about the situation. The project had multiple parts and we were given some time to work on it in class. I managed to finish my part of the project a few days earlier and all I had to do, was wait for my partners to finish their parts and I can put the whole thing together and hand it in. I kept goading my partners to finish their parts but to no avail. Finally on the night before the deadline, I begged my partners to finish, but they refused due to the possible snow day the next day. My teacher understood the situation and he decided to accept my part and grade it for me while the rest of my partners failed. P.S. Sorry for being so late

So much YDI, you don't wait till the last day for important projects.
It's possible the OP finished their work but they couldn't have put the whole thing together with their group's parts unfinished. And even if they'd had time, people procrastinate. It's not some unheard of concept. Still shouldn't have to suffer the laziness of others.
I don't think OP deserved it considering they were actually trying to do the work. You don't know how long they had. I know sometimes we would get a huge project and only have 2 days to do it because they would have 4 people on 1 project. I would go to the teacher and explain what happened and see if you and only you could get extra credit or something.
Considering it was an important final project they probably had some time on their hands. OP should've talked with his project partners a few days before to make some finishing measures together, cause it takes some work to put your work and the work of your project partners together, otherwise the whole project just won't fit together plus it avoids situations like this.
Yeah I also generally work alone, mainly because people only join my group because they know I'm smart enough to do it myself. The only time I work with groups now is when a group is required by the teacher, and I just take the top bidder (unless my friends are there). Someone once gave me $10 just to work with their group. Lol my economy teacher just said, "Its supply and demand."
Isn't there a way of checking with your school if there is a real snow day? Why didn't you just finish the project yourself? Sounds like you and your partners are both to blame.
