Overheard at the Star of Siam

Small Thai man (to couple sitting next to us): What this I hear about your fried rice?

Unsatisfied, somewhat angry lady: This fried rice is no good.

Small Thai man: What wrong with the fried rice? There's nothing wrong with the fried rice!

Angry Lady: This rice is not good. I've been to other places where the rice was browner and better. This rice is unsatisfactory to me!

Thai man: Look around you! My restaurant is full for lunch! It has been packed for 20 years! No one around here thinks the rice is not good but you!

Angry Lady: I am the customer. And I say, some of these condiments are completely unnecessary.
