Too many people have been using the phrase "in a pickle." Not only does it make me hungry, it also makes me wonder: WTF? I agree, it would be incredibly uncomfortable to be soaked in brine. However, I also think it would suck to be grilled over hot coals, but no one says "I am on a shish kabob!" Okay, that might not be a very good analogy, I am welcome to better suggestions. You get my point. Just tell me that you're experiencing something difficult and you could use a little help. The end of the rant.
