Don't you hate when your doing a group project and there is those two girls in your group that don't do anything and gossip the whole time? Well, that is an example of social loafing. A topic discussed in chapter thirteen, Social Psychology. It's not fair when the teacher announces that everyone in the group gets the exact same grade, but then you and one other person end up doing everything in class, going home to work on it and then talk during the whole presentation. Then of course the two stupid girls who didn't do anything get the exact same grade as you. It isn't fair, but in reality there is nothing that we can do about it. If you go and tell the teacher that you did everything, all they are going to do is ask the girls if they helped out, or what they did. Which those girls can just make something up. It is very frustrating but if happens to the best of us.
