Sometimes I really wonder how some people get into pharmacy school. Their inability to derive simple things really makes me wonder. This is why I hate group work. I hate having my grade depend on whomever I get placed with, and let's face it, there are lots of stupid people, even in pharmacy school. Since my grade is on the line... and I have trust issues with most of the people I was placed with, my friend and I pretty much ended up doing all the work. Now most of this group I was placed in had no problem with it. It's in class work, and they sit back and listen as we go through it. I don't mind, because I want the A.
Except you always have that one stupid person that thinks they are a fucking genius! Granted it could be said that person could be me, but I admit when I know something and when I don't, while this person is generally wrong. I do not regard myself as a genius, but I know if I know my shit or not. This person however loves to chime in with their own poorly derived theories and doesn't even come close to the correct answer and continues to argue with me. Luckily another person in my group is intelligent and backs me up.
The best argument was whether or not the 'patient' had respiratory or metabolic acidosis. It was respiratory, but this person really had to ask repeatedly if it was metabolic. Four of us agreed it was respiratory, but for some reason they could not let that fact go! I wanted to punch her in the face because I just wanted to finish it so we could leave.
On another problem it stated in the patient symptoms that the patient was dehydrated. Same person while we were discussing it, asked if we were sure the patient was dehydrated. Holy mother of pharmacy, IT SAYS SO RIGHT HERE! I really wish I could duct tape her mouth shut just so we can get our work done.
There are more, but I need to get back to studying. I just needed to get this off my chest haha.
