A-100 - besieged by golf carts

Partial view of the scene at 4:20 or so on Thursday.
It was late in the day when Rebel Girl made her way across campus and counted one, two, three, f—  er, somewhere near 12 golf carts (Is that our entire fleet?) surrounding A-100, parking in all manner of places: sidewalks, grassy knoll, embankment. It was a spectacle that managed to even get the attention of students.
The quick photo above taken by Rebel Girl's Android cell phone camera does not do the scene justice.  It looked like a convention or an insurrection or a blockade.  Something big was happening.

One participant who had slipped out to buy coffee at the Ye Olde Coffee Cart alluded to an impromptu impassioned meeting between the college president and those workers with complaints about the recent dramatic change in work hours. The encounter seemed sustained, lasting at least an hour or more.

As she was busy, busy, busy - she can't report on any upshot from the meeting but perhaps our loyal readers can.
