Cooks get trashed cause people are grumpy. As well, it's not how "I"
would do it. (Where I is the person complaining.) This is a common
problem, but usually the person is not willing to actually do the

My problem, as I've seen at a number of feasts, is what do you do if the
feast is ready, announced at a time, but it will not be served til the
Royalty is ready. (This means the entire populace who is eating feast is
already seated.) How long do you put it off? Do you wait hours for the
Crown to be there? Do you eat without the Crown? Both solutions seem to
be in poor taste to me. If the Crown, on the other hand, says it's okay
to start feast, then all is well. (The Crown here can be replaced with
whatever royalty is present, it was just handy since that is where the
original thread started.)
