"You said Please. You don't really need an ambulance. Call back in 15 minutes when we go off break. Maybe we can fit you in then."

"Usted dijo que por favor. No es realmente necesita una ambulancia. Volver a llamar en 15 minutos cuando vamos fuera descanso. Tal vez podemos encajar en ese momento."
