Fred Bennett of Nelson, New Zealand, was trying to increase the business of his Thai-themed restaurant. He thought it would be nice to have a greeting on a sign in the restaurant. So, he wrote a greeting in the Thai language only to discover later the greeting actually was translated, “Go away and don’t come back.” How often we say things we didn’t intend to say. Even some churches have accidently sent out the message “Go away and don’t come back.”
