Ian Holmes CE 201, Section 001 Nov. 6, 2007 Couch Potato: i. Discuss the difficulties with having to deal with a couch potato. It is hard to work with a couch potato because unlike “hitchhikers”, generally couch potatoes are generally nice, but just like “hitchhikers” they don’t get their job done. The problem is having to lay the strict rules for the couch potatoes. A couch potato can normally do the work well, and that’s one of the reasons they don’t work hard. It comes easy to them, so they have no drive. They do a lazy job because of lack of effort and then expect to get just a good of a grade as the group which probably worked hard. The coach potato brings everyone else down, while the group brings his/her grade up. ii. D iscuss why it is necessary to minimize the “couch potato” aspect on teamwork.

Everyone has to chip in, if one person is being a “couch potato” that’s when people feel they are working harder, and tempers flare. If everyone feels like they are working just as hard

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
