Chinese, English at restaurant. Wed, Oct 25, 2006.
10/25/2006. 741. An errand took me to the East side of town in the late afternoon, and I decided to look for a new restaurant to try. I found a Chinese buffet restaurant that I haven't been to before.
The waitress made it very easy. Shortly after I placed a bilingual Chinese/English New Testament, English and Chinese (both simplified script [catalog suffix -266] and traditional script [suffix -265] ) Books of Mormon on the table, she came by, put her finger on the title of the simplified script copy, and said something in Chinese. I said something like "They're free. Would you like one?" but we didn't seem to communicate. I picked up the Simplified script, the English, and the NT, and presented them to her like a gift, and she gratefully accepted them. The cashier/hostess stopped by and helped translate, and confirmed to the waitress that they were free.
The cashier then asked for an English copy. I asked if she wanted a Chinese copy too, but she said she already had one. I told the cashier that I had more if anyone else wanted any. She said she'd ask around. But within a few minutes, the dinner hour rush was in full swing, and she didn't get back to me. They were so busy I didn't want to interrupt them any more. But they definitely deserve a follow-up visit.
