Frustrated Interviewee (frustrated-interviewee-sol.txt)

Walkthrough by Denk to "Frustrated Interviewee" by Robert Street
----------------------------------------------------------------
Good to know before playing:

If you try to SAY or ASK you are told that communcation is done with TALK TO CHARACTER which is
fine. However, it isn't mentioned that you can try to order people with the command structure:
JOHN TAKE BOULDER 

More over, the standard from old Infocom games, e.g. JOHN, TAKE BOULDER doesn't work with the
ADRIFT 4 Runner as it thinks that the comma starts a new command. So leave out the comma.

Here is the solution:
