Where do I purchase tickets for the next Scottsdale train wreck ?
The 1,000 people who reserved a seat at the "Re-Opening" should be ashamed of themselves. You are encouraging their bad behavior as well as the terrible treatment of employees and customers. I realize to many it is similar to attending a circus or oddity show, however with their twisted ideals I'm sure they will take it as an affirmation that they are true "chefs". Traditionally when businesses show unfair practices the public generally boycotts them. They stole the wait staff's tips; isn't that enough to demonstrate the lack of concern for their employees not to mention state laws. ... If you do try dining at Amy's you might want to go prepared. 1. Eat a full meal before you go. The wait will be long and the food will be bad. 2. Write down a few phone numbers of people you can call collect because cells phones are not allow in jail. 3. Be sure to have the name of a reputable Bail Bond Agent in case you need to post bail from jail. 4. Hire personal security if you do indeed enter into an altercation with Samy -- remember he IS THE GANGSTA, and "you do not want to F---- with him".
maupin needs a place to hang? i have a tree and thick rope, come make an appointment rev.
Who the hell is this Maupin buffoon? Wow you guys in Arizona have a bunch of nuts.
Waffle House lets them keep their tips and if they don't get enough tips to earn $7.80 per hour, Waffle House must make up the difference. So, at worst they pay 20-cents less per hour than ABC. I'd bet dollars to doughnuts they make much more than $8 with their tips. Either Maupin is a fuckin moron or he thinks everyone else is, which still makes him an idiot.
o man I feel for The Reverend Jarrett Maupi. God will really need to bless him now if he can. Christ literately.
I didn't know that Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey were coming to town!
The are so infamous it's time to franchise their business model.
Robin, why? It's still funny, The day of the Media Circus Event [5/21 - MARK THE DAY!] should bring new peaks of hilarity!
I'll be very disapponted if it doesn't.
Calling the people of Scottsdale "uppity" and insulting those who would likely be frequenting the restaurant doesn't sound like the best "PR move" to me.
Anyone know where Maupin bought his divinity degree or is it courtesy of an ink jet printer?
Shame on Jarret. He has just about destroyed all his credibility. He was an brilliant young man that had quite a future in politics. He just flushed that down the toilet
Amy's "signature dishes " are: half cooked pizza , and frozen ravioli..
Pastry ..whatever she can buy from another bakery ....
The wait.staff are getting paid with their own tips , So , the restaurant are NOT paying them anything....
Actually, Amy behaves with far less dec0rum than a G0tti...
OMG let it go!
Jarrett Maupin? Hasn't he done prison time for fraud or something?
Maupin is a clown and a moron
Paying someone $8/hr is 20 cents/hr over minimum wage and the Waffle House has to pay minimum wage or higher.
that's hilarious all the nuts will be there, not just in the desserts lol
Waiters may not get *paid* $8 to $14 an hour, but it works out to at least that much even at Applebee's. Tips are for the employees, and the employees alone. http://www.dol.gov/whd/regs/compliance/whdfs15.htm
Specifically: "Retention of Tips: A tip is the sole property of the tipped employee regardless of whether the employer takes a tip credit. The FLSA prohibits any arrangement between the employer and the tipped employee whereby any part of the tip received becomes the property of the employer. For example, even where a tipped employee receives at least $7.25 per hour in wages directly from the employer, the employee may not be required to turn over his or her tips to the employer."
Ugh, that thieving bastard.
In the mean time, reality is happening all around the valley.
The Reverend looks like a pimp. I only wish that I could visit Amy's for the grand re-opening.
Hard to beat good theater.
ABC - the gift that just keeps giving. There's an interesting AMA on Reddit with Katie - the server that got fired during the show - in which she's fairly open about her experience at ABC and on the show.
any server making $8.00 an hour isn't doing very good!
is this real life?
Is the rightous and pious Reverand buddies with Jesse Jackson Jr.?
At this "Press Conference," I would love to see the "Chef Amy" demonstrate for the press as to how
"she" makes all her great desserts -- made fresh daily -- according to
their website. THEN have her multitalented hubby -- internet security
expert AND world class photographer -- set up the food photography. After
all, and as he said, Amy made that beautiful food, and he shot the
"pictures." THEN, people like Martha Stewart and others "stole them."
And to all those who have made reservations for the "Re-Grand Opening"
-- HERE'S AN IDEA: When your bill arrives, pay with a credit card, and
Note the Tip Line as "Cash Tip" -- total it out....THEN hand your server their tip
directly. And sit back and watch Sammy melt down.
@salmo60 So has Amy. They go well together.
