Sometimes you meet someone and they tell you something that just makes so much sense.
Thursday night, we went out for dinner at Osha Thai in Scottsdale - definitely our favorite Thai restaurant in the area. We know the waitresses there very, very well because we go so often and they are really friendly. We had originally tried to go last Saturday, but they were closed for the holiday weekend. We were teasing the waitress that next time they take time off, they need to check with us. I told her that we were there on Saturday and were disappointed they weren't open. She said, in her lightly accented halting English, "You need to call. Nobody answer, don't come."
Excellent advice. Excellent. Thank you. :)
