So SP is going to call the Hungary clinic to nail down just how many days I'll need to stay there. Email responses have been slow, so I've handed over communication to someone a little closer to the time zone so he could call.
When SP was in China during college, they left him high and dry with no money, taking their sweet time sending him the money they owed him from his several on-campus jobs. I had to call from Boston and chew out various lackeys, getting snarly and explaining that SP was starving to death because they couldn't be bothered to pull their thumbs out of their asses.
"Do you understand? His friends are wiring him money so that he can EAT. Does your tony little college want this kind of press? Because I'd love to tell the papers how a prestigious North Shore college abandoned the first student sent on its pilot Study in China program."
I'm always better when I'm defending my people. And SP is the one person who takes care of me, so it's kind of nice that he's going to sort this out.
