    was crushed and restored in the span of Ten minutes today.


    The crushing occurred; When my Wife called my work to tell them she was being admitted to the hospital, Four and a half hours later they hadn't informed me. I had to call my wife to find out what happened, and after I mentioned it to the people in charge, they didn't even bother to apologies. Just told me I would have to call out or get pointed.

    Restoration; So I'm sitting in the lobby, no car, my ride [wife] isn't coming, family is, but they are hours away, and everyone I knew was long gone.

    Desperate and passing, I walked up to the first person that looked like he was leaving; "Hey mister, you don't know me, and if you say no to the favor I am about to ask, considering the day and age, I will think nothing less of you. My Wifes in the hospital. Would you give me a ride?"

    W/o a moments pause, he said yes, THEN asked; "Which one?"



    His name is Brandon, no last name for his privacy. A special young man that's a rare find.
