Do you know what really irritates me at the moment?

Do you know what really irritates me at the moment? People who don't make an effort when other people are relying on you. Don't get me wrong I'm not perfect, but I still get hacked off by people who don't try.

I'm in the process of completing my doctorate. In fact, I've got one class left before I graduate and re-enter the world of work. The very last thing I have to do in this class is hand in a group project. Now I just so happen to be working with two people who are new to research work. Couple this with the fact that they seem to think that doing enough not to fail is ok and I have spent the last 3 months effectively saying "We can do better, trust me" to them a lot and it's driving me mad.

I don't like having to play the role of grumpy, naggy old fart but time and again, I've got my fingerprints all over this project because I want to as well as possible in everything I do. I know that that's kind of anal of me but it's something I'm not sure I can let go of now.
