A: I need a cab to the theater district.

B: We can get that for you right away.

A: Well, I don't need to be there for another hour.

B: Would you like to reserve a limo then?

A: That seems a bit much for me. Just a regular cab is fine.

B: We can't reserve a taxi that far in advance, sir.

A: So how do I get a cab in an hour then?

B: If you go right outside our lobby when you are ready, a staff member will hail one for you.

A: Do I have to tip the guy who gets the cab for me?

B: Tips aren't mandatory, but they are appreciated.

A: Maybe I'll just hail the cab myself then.

B: That's also an option.
