      • #15 KittenWhiplash 
        • I had an angioplasty on a vein in my leg, and the hospitality clerk called a cab for after the procedure. After several calls over the next hour, the clerk had to close the table, and my cab home was still not showing up. A clerk in the pharmacy took over calling for me, still with no results. She even called my mom to let her know why I was running late, but that I was ok. Finally a kind fellow patient gave me a ride home. As we were walking out of the pharmacy, a cab was pulling into the parking area. The clerk said “You guys go ahead, and just leave the driver to me.” I’ve often wished I could have heard her telling the driver off.
