Radio announcer and “It’s Showtime” host Amy Perez shared on Facebook her amusing but sad story about the valet driver of St. Luke’s Medical Center at E. Rodriguez Avenue, Quezon City.
Amy’s son with television news reporter Carlo Castillo was confined at the aforementioned hospital when it all happened.
Their car’s dash cam, which the valet driver did not notice, was a strong evidence of what he did to the Castillo couple’s car.
In a Facebook post on Tuesday, September 12, Amy narrated, “Si kuyang valet nabuking na kung saan-saan inikot ang kotse at pinamalita pa kung kanino ang car, di n’ya napansin na may dash cam pala. Ayun, huli! Yan ang world class.” [“Kuyang Valet [driver]” got caught taking the car around and telling people who owns the car, he didn’t notice that there was a dash cam. So, he got caught! That’s world class.]
Amy’s Facebook post received various reactions from her celebrity friends. Some advised her to report the incident to the hospital’s management. But the TV host affirmed that it was actually the first thing which his husband did after they have watched the video.
Orion Casareo, husband of Kapuso Actress Angelika dela Cruz, was able to read Amy’s story, and shared another story of a bad experience with a valet driver at the same hospital.
According to him, “Hassle valet sa St. Luke’s. They rearended my car before then di nila sinabi. Nagulat na lang ako sa bahay may mga scratches na when I got home.” [St. Luke’s’ Valet is a hassle. They rear-ended my car before but then, without telling us. I just got shocked when I saw scratches on my car when I got home.]
“Stupid, I did not notice sa St. Luke’s. [Stupid, I did not notice while at St. Luke’s.] I went back to St. Luke’s and asked them.”
“Still denying, when we reviewed CCTV, nakita na nabangga nila ang car. They paid for the damages. Hassle.” [Still denying, when we reviewed the CCTV, it was seen that they crashed the car. They paid for the damages. Hassle.]
Amy then responded and said: “Nakakapikon di ba? Kaya sabi ko tanggalin na ang tagline nila na world class.” [It’s annoying, right? That’s why I told them to remove their tagline that says “world-class”.]
With regards to this incident, Pep reportedly emailed the management of St. Luke’s Medical Center to hear their side of the story.
The hospital has yet to give response against the complaint.
