Entry: Soup Kitchen 11/28 Dec 6, 2017

11/28- Today was the first real occurrence at the soup kitchen where someone posed a threat to other clients. A man named Greg stalked up to the counter Tuesday morning, asking hurriedly for Jan. While waiting, he made several rude comments about the kitchen and the food to my fellow volunteers. Jan tried to seat the man, and gave his wife forms to fill out. While the wife sat herself at a table, Greg exclaimed that there were no seats and proceeded to take a seat on the floor. Upon intervention by Jan, Greg used a demanding tone of voice and refused to cooperate. Pete was then signalled out of the kitchen by Jan and removed Greg from the floor. Though the issue was resolved, it’s the first time in the months that I’ve been volunteering that there was ny conflict, and it made the day’s visit memorable.
