Wow it’s been quite a while since I’ve been shocked like this, and it’s not even for something violent or horrific. Well, horrific could be used to describe it.
Amy’s Baking Company was recently featured on Ramsay’s Kitchen Nightmares. A show where people invite Gordon Ramsay to come in and tear them apart to find what’s wrong with their business and fix it.
The restaurant is owned and run by Amy and Samy, a married couple. Samy invested $1 million of his money to open the restaurant for Amy because it was a dream of hers. That dream turned into everyone who worked there’s nightmare.
The woman cannot take criticism, if Gordon Ramsay says your food is shite, it’s shite. The waiting staff aren’t given any of their tips, the owner keeps them for himself. I mean, what? He doesn’t let any of the waiting staff operate the POS system despite the fact they’ve all used them before and so would need no training.
When a customer complains they are told that they’re wrong and if they don’t like it they should leave. On the episode two guys wait over an hour for a pizza and when they ask how much longer it’ll be Samy says they can wait or they can leave. But when they go to leave he demands they pay for the meal, despite the fact they haven’t been given any food yet. He then physically stops them from leaving. In what world does this guy think that’s ok?
The level of delusion is astounding, these two are clearly living in their own little world where he is a gangster running the most efficient restaurant in town and she is a fabulous chef.
After the episode aired, the internet obviously took up the pitchforks and the Yelp reviews poured in. Rather than just keep their heads down and weather the storm tho they decided to start mouthing back. Apparently God is on their side and they don’t need the haters from the reddits.
These people cannot go out of business quickly enough. Thinking that people coming into your restaurant owe you something is a ridiculous view to have. If something isn’t good, even if it just isn’t to the person’s taste, you do not tell them they’re wrong.
A spoilt little girl with a sugar daddy mafioso wannabe clearly do not a good business make.

I can’t believe it was nine years ago today that Hopes & Fears, Keane’s first album released. I remember not having much interest in them when Somewhere Only We Know came out preferring Snow Patrol’s Run which released around the same time. But then Everybody’s Changing came out, then Bedshaped soon after and it was love. Though Strangeland is probably now my favourite of their albums, because it always reminds me of my time in Canada, I’ll always have a special place for Hopes & Fears.
This is a pretty impressive image and one of the main reasons why I wish I had a 4S over a 4. I can’t believe how crap photos taken with the 3G looked.
This looks like a fun movie but it won’t be one I’m going to the cinema to see. I also want to read the book but I need to find it second hand somewhere.
Orson Scott Card is a disgusting homophobe and he won’t be getting a penny from me.
I don’t drive but there’s nothing I find more annoying than cyclists who expect to be treated like a vehicle…then go through red lights.
You can’t have it both ways.

I’m working my way through my backlog of PS3 games I’ve gotten free through Playstation Plus and today I finished up Starhawk. It was a pretty fun game and the third person shooter switching to aerial combat game was pretty cool. The fact you could do it on the fly was rather fun. The cutscenes in the game weren’t so much custscenes as animated comic panels but they were nice to look at.
I don’t think the game did too well unfortunately as the developer recently laid off half their staff. It’s a shame the PSPlus version only gave you access to the single player as I would’ve liked to try out the multiplayer to see what it was like with all the vehicles.
Different is fine but pretty is pretty, and I never met anyone different who didn’t know that.

I was just saying to someone about the weird trend of gay couples looking like each other.
