Mediation Roleplay #10 (continued)
were in the Student Union Pool Hall with some friends
when you noticed Cam (opposite gender from you) come
in with Andi (same gender as you). You had met Cam a
few days earlier and felt good about your contact. You
wanted to get to know Cam better. After talking to Cam
for awhile in the Pool Hall, Andi came over and started
ordering you around. You were concerned that Andi might
start a fight, so you friends came over to support you.
Andi shoved you, you shoved Andi back and then a fight
followed. The Pool Hall manager came over to stop the
fight before anyone got hurt, but the pool table was
damaged in the scuffle and will cost $125 to repair.
The next day, the game room manager called to strongly
recommend that you mediate with Andi to resolve the
conflict and cover the damages to the pool table, in
order to avoid any disciplinary action or criminal charges.
You agreed, because you didnt want any bad marks
on your good college record, and you certainly didnt
want to get dragged into court.
