A vegetarian who has been allowed two tins of milk a day is now having this cut off due to shortage. She went direct to Nakamura about it, saying It was against her religion to eat meat. so Arthur blew up on religion again. There should have been no special privilege from the beginning in this emergency. The Seventh Day Adventists and their their no-pork rule should have been suspended. Instead they have consumed all the cheese, macaroni, spaghetti etc. Now there is none left. Even the people who brought in cheese had none of it due to this religious rule. Managers always complain they cannot find enough people to take responsibility. There are too many who cheat or give privilege or take it. Everyone wants to be the exception. It can be worked out, I’m convinced, from observation in here.
