people should be able to eat sand if they decide they want to, regardless of
whether it is someone else’s sand.

example that fits with each system. Present each workplace scenario in a
substantial paragraph of approximately 40 words. Although the table field will
expand to accommodate your workplace examples, you may list them at the end of
the table; make a note in the table to see the attached examples, however, so
your facilitator knows to look for scenarios below the table.
