Scenario from work...

You always hated group projects in college but did what you needed to do to get the grade you wanted even if your workload was unfair.

You're now an adult and working in your field.

You and a co-worker have been assigned a project to complete and you meet to set a schedule and action item deadlines.

The first two meetings are fine.

The co-worker misses the next meeting and then...3 out of the next 5 meetings.  

Yall have other responsibilities too but the deadline for this particular project us barreling down on you.

How do you handle?
