Sending Jiroumaru to get Tohru might be simple. But so is trying to solve Algebra with addition and subtraction. It just doesn't work

Except given Ren's current state, they're pretty screwed if they can't get Tohru back. If being short on Waitresses is a problem for awhile, then having all the meals ruined will be a disaster. So worrying about the waitress shortage at the beginning of the day is kind of moot point.

In terms of cost/benefit analysis, it's the difference between trying to maximize gains (Increase odds of getting Tohru back for max benefit) as opposed to trying to minimize loss (Better damage control for when Ren screws up the meal). It shouldn't be surprising given Ohana's personality, that she goes for option that seems to allow for the possibility of a good outcome*.

*Of course she could have also run into the Kitchen, bitchslapped Ren and told him to relax...I guess it was spur of the moment
