F in effort

Lately, I feel like I’m living in a world of incompetence. People who lack drive and instead carelessly drag their feet through life with 0% desire to be successful. They just don’t care about anything. It’s easy to point out these people on a college campus – when they’re there. They’re the ones who never turn assignments in on time; they text during class instead of paying attention; and, not surprisingly, they don’t even bother showing up to half the classes – except on exam day where they’ll likely receive the grade they should receive for effort: a big, fat F.

Normally this wouldn’t bug me because I could choose not to associate myself with them. But when professors pair me with these idiots for group projects, there’s not much I can do. There’s no choice but to deal with their minuscule effort that causes more stress because I’m the one who has to pick up the slack. How’s that fair? It’s not. People like me with a strong work ethic have to cover these peoples’ useless asses time after time.


The worst part about all of this is that it’s not going to end when I graduate. Incompetence will follow me. Not everyone cares about succeeding. This seems odd to me because we’re given one life, right? So why not do your best? Instead, these people are drifting about, never making an actual impact. The question on my mind for these people would be, “Is this really the kind of life you want to be leading?” After all, life’s only as meaningful as you make it.
