Sooner or later, we'll all end up in a situation that feels like being knee-deep in bullcrap. Hopefully, it's not that literal for you, and I am so sorry if it is.
But even though we'll do anything to get out of that situation, the "anything" usually sounds like a lot of work. Even as we're begging for a bullcrap shovel, a small, lazy part of us might still think, "Eh, maybe this is a smell you can get used to."
And that's more or less the situation these people have found themselves in. Again, not literally. I like you guys too much for that.
