It's in the telling of the story.....
Shadowraiths, what you cite is mutiny verbiage (rockDAWG does like his verbiage) and reaction (pushing Jane away after she tried to get HIS satphone from me; tapping Harry on the nose a bit after the [expletive here] tried to [expletive again] hit me over the head with a [third expletive] winch handle).
As for the danger, we figured that what with the underfilled tank (that had been Harry's responsibility to fill, and that we only found out when we were well underway he hadn't filled), we had enough water to last us maybe 18 days. At the rate we were going, it was clear it could take a good deal longer than that, and the owners just didn't seem to care.
Sure, we weren't in imminent
danger, but we didn't want to find ourselves in imminent danger, either, and it was looking to end up that way.
Of course the constant yelling and abuse didn't help our state of mind, either.
