|Group work ruins everything.

The Question Club
So I'm in a very small class of graduate students and we're working together on a group project. It's been a frustrating process because the professor is crazy and keeps changing things on us, and I've been out of town for a bit of it and missed a group meeting because I had another class. I thought I was doing okay, though, until one group member accidentally attached some private emails to an email for the whole group. |
I admittedly totally dropped the ball on an aspect of the project. We were supposed to send our surveys to a group member, which I knew, but 9 yesterday morning, which I did not know (that was discussed at the meeting I missed, when I asked a classmate what I missed, she said, "not much"). I sent them way late and I apologized profusely (and sincerely, I hope, I feel really bad about it). In the emails, one group member says I don't seem like much of a team player and she shouldn't send the final tally to me (which is essential for the final papers we all have to write individually) because "respect is given to those who give it."
I'm really upset by this. Do I pretend that I never saw the email? Because everyone else in the group did... And I don't want people to think I'm not a team player or that I don't respect the rest of my team. I didn't realize I'd been coming across that way and I'm honestly kind of baffled. And upset. And feeling sick. I want to apologize, but I'm not sure if I should draw attention to the email and... what do I do? :(
