Were it us, our first action would be to swear out loud, several times if necessary. Then we’d do what he’s doing — assess the situation and find a place to start. We can almost hear the conversations between him and the office: “Yeah, Murray, it’s me. Hey, bring the dozer, the big shovel, and a couple dozen boxes of heavy-duty trash bags on your way out here.”
