Her hand thus forced, Sandra sets about disassembling the shelter in order to uncover the fastenings for the tarp. She peels away all the palm fronds from the roof and the walls. "She's gonna ruin it," Ryan-O says unhappily. Can you really "ruin" a shelter so inhospitable that you can't even sleep in it? Apparently, Ryan-O missed the part of wilderness camp where they explained that your shelter is supposed to be better than sleeping hanging upside-down from a tree fully exposed to the elements, not worse. Sandra tells the assembled Morgan tribe members that she's trying to lay the fronds down as carefully as she can so that they can put it back together as easily as possible, which looks to be pretty much true. "I'll be done in a minute; I'll be out of you guys's [sic] hair," she says. Sandra interviews that she felt kind of bad about destroying the shelter until the Morgan members "started running their mouths." Apparently, Sandra went for a knife to cut through the ropes tying the tarp to the poles, and Tijuana announced that she couldn't use the knife and couldn't cut the ropes. They look to be little ropes that have been used just as ties, so it's not clear to me that there's much point in stopping her from cutting through them, but Sandra, without complaint, just takes to untying them instead. "Don't wreck the shelter," one of them admonishes her. Please. "I gotta do what I gotta do," Sandra says flatly. "No, not necessarily," Andrew says. What is he, bargaining with her now? Yeah, she so needs him. Darrah interviews that she thought Sandra was jerky about coming over and taking the tarp. In fact, she thinks the entire Drake tribe is a bunch of "[expletive]s." Pricks? It's hard to say. She doesn't lip-read easy, but it might have been "pricks." She insists that Sandra was "a little bit too snatchy" and tore the shelter down "on purpose." Dude. If you want to control how the tarp is taken, go help. It's not that complicated an equation. "No hard feelings," Sandra says as she walks off with the tarp, leaving behind her many, many hard feelings. See, this is one of those situations where I think she was right and they were jerks, but I still think she should have or could have been more prudent about the way she did that. For good or for ill, those people are going to hold that against her, and if she ever does need any of their help, it's not going to be forthcoming. "She is such a bitch," says (I think) Darrah. Totally. Self-sufficiency is ooky. It is way better to let the boys run everything and tell you what to do.
