I would have loved the job of Napkin Board Respondent
when I was at Bates.
The student collects & responds to suggestions on the Napkin Board.
To do this he or she collects data from all areas of Dining Services
in search of answers to everyday concerns of students.
“Must have a great personality, writing experience,
sense of humor, be well organized,
and react well to student opinions.”
Way better than dish-busing.
Rather than stewing over the lack of meat in the stew,
Bates College students can write their problem on a napkin
and post it on the bulletin board.
Too much salt? Too little dessert? Too few bread choices?
All concerns get a typed reply. And even if the problem isn’t solved,
the fury behind it abates
because it’s gotten an airing and a response.
Mayhap there’s a real world application?
Napkins & words VS red lines & bombs?
