The Lazy Students

Part of my volunteer job entails supporting college students. However, these kids ignore any and all requests and delight in putting tasks off for a future date. What do I do? -- Frustrated Fred

Dear Fred,

Alas, you are discovering why so many professionals are loathe to work with college students -- so many refuse to get their act together and take decisive action when it's needed.

Alas, you are discovering why so many professionals are loathe to work with college students -- so many refuse to get their act together and take decisive action when it's needed.  It's a fast-paced world out there and many students refuse to take part in it.

This is a volunteer job.  If these lazy teens and early-twentysomethings are causing you such distress, then it's time to move on.  Keep volunteering -- just do so with a more responsible, active crowd.
