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.
