Peer pressure

How should I behave in a group chat?

I join a LINE group of internal committee activity.

As it is operated voluntarily, most members are go-getters, but it seems that some of them are a bit of smart alecks.

What I’m irritated is that they start discussing on the group chat.

When I saw my smartphone, I was surprised at more than ten noticifications from LINE.

I wondered if I should join the discussion although I wasn’t interested in the topic.

It was a kind of peer pressure, I thought. It is a little difficult to get along with committee members.
