So today I and 3 guys from school were supposed to present something about Machiavelli in philosophy class. The teacher had told us to use up the entire hour, but since he gave us little time for preparation, we all were pretty stressed from the very beginning. I finished my critique and rezension of him, wheareas my colleagues completed his social-historical background, his thesis etc. After that, we revised the whole thing together and saved the complete presentation on the laptop of one of the other three. I came into school thinking that we'd discuss some last-minute changes during the breaks, but surprise, the owner of the laptop was assent. We thought that he'd arrive after the second lesson (we had physics and he pretty much hates the subject). So we waited, but he didn't come. I tried to call his home and his cellphone several times, but to no avail, he just wouldn't respond. The laptop was in our possession, since he had left it at the home of another one from the group. But since we didm't know the password, we couldn't access it. And since he wouldn't answer to our calls, there was no way to find it out. We explained the situation to the teacher and said that we did have some parts of the presentation ourselves, but that the bulk of it was on that shitty laptop, meaning we were unable to do a proper presentation. And for some friggin reason, our teacher kept telling us that we should present Machiavelli nontheless, despite having next to nothing. In the end, the remaining two guys went home during lunch-break, and I'll be here hoping that my teacher won't be an asshole and have me do it all (meaning nothing) by myself.
Honestly, I know that we could have been more organized than thus, but goddamn, we had little time at disposition and this weak was filled with tests, presentations and examinations, we had no time to do everything in a perfect way. What I just don't get is why my teacher is so stubborn. Just let us do the whole thing on monday instead of being an asshole and having us repsnt for another's mistake.
So yeah, I'm pretty annoyed right now, and I'm starting to regret going to school today
