What the title says. I’ve been doing lots of reading lately on CD related to disagreements between teams and Key Volunteers. Whenever I’m at comp I try to fulfill the requests that any volunteer gives, but there have been instances where the volunteer was incorrect and the request they made was unnecessary, or even dangerous. In these situations, what is the line of assertiveness that shouldn’t be crossed?
An example I can think of off the top of my head is if an inspector (not LRI) tells me that I need to change something about my robot due to a rule that doesn’t exist, what do I do? Do I go get the LRI? Do I show the inspector that there is no such rule? Is it ok for me to just tell him that he’s wrong, or should I just say ok initially and then go talk to the LRI?
I guess the question I’m trying to ask here is, is it OK for me (as a student) to directly tell a volunteer that I think they’re wrong, or do I need to handle the situation differently somehow?
