In this particular case, any of our team would have done what Tuffy did: leave the box. As close as this one was, you do what the Rep says and cross your fingers. And when we got word it was DQ'd, we'd have been disappointed in ourselves, but not entirely surprised.
Now, had it been 20 seconds later, we'd have probably said, "We're too late, aren't we?" Carolyn would have said "Yep - sorry," and we'd have walked away dejected, depressed, angry with ourselves, cursing the world, screaming "O Fortuna!" and ready to quit the hobby forever. Or, we'd have had another beer, agreed the brisket sucked anyway, and then blamed Al, because it was probably his fault we were late.
