Agenda Item 4

(Molly) - Dismiss no-show for dinner on 8/18 - two healthy dishes were prepared, and no show was for preparing them “in bad faith” - I'd like to get these no-shows dismissed and discuss what “in bad faith” means and how this applies to future evaluations of labor.

Molly: I served two healthy dishes that took about as long as it normally takes. I'm not sure why I was no-showed. I also feel the amount of the no-show (3 hours) is out of proportion with how the membership coordinator was no-showed for a far greater amount.

Richard: To clarify on the hour amount, this would be processed as a half no-show, so 1.5 hours total.

Molly: I'm on at a tribunal of males. Has there ever been an attempt to talk to me?

Burgess: I made an attempt before when you were cooking brunch. I feel it was a moment of male grace.

Molly: Can the minutes show that I wasn't told this would only be a 1.5-hour no-show and not a three-hour one?

Richard: Sure.

Molly: With the exception of Scarlet, I am the only woman here, and I feel this was a room full of men, most of whom were hostile on the issue before the meeting started.

Concern from Richard: I don't think I've learned anything new here, so the no-show still strikes me as legitimate.

Friendly amendment from Molly: Instead of dismissing the no-show reduce it to a no-show of one dish instead of two.

Concern from Richard: I don't consider the two in combination to qualify as either two meals or one.

[friendly amendment fails to pass]
