Yes, she's a textbook narcissist. Sadly personality disorders are not easily treated, even when the person is able to recognize there's a problem. Most narcissists never recognize there's a problem beyond everyone else though.

Thank goodness they don't have kids, and I mean that sincerely.

I've always wanted to see one of those episodes where they get some guy to show up and it turns out that while he claimed to a 25 year old neckbeard coming to see who he thinks is a 14 year old girl, he shows up and  he turns out to bea 12 year Asian school girl.

A Jew, an Italian, and an Irishman are at a bar, and the Jew and the Italian start arguing about Jesus.
The Jew says "Jesus was obviously a Jew, because his mother thought he was God."  The Italian says "No, Jesus was an Italian, because he thought his mother was God."  The Irishman says "No, no, no, you're both wrong.  Jesus was Irish".  The other two look at him and say "What?"  The Irishman replies "It's obvious.  He was unemployed in the building trades."

I haven't yet watched the entire thing but there is nothing those 2 clowns can do to redeem themselves for what happened in the first 6-ish minutes, (the day before Gordon got there).
That is just inexcusable and I hope their business folds sooner rather than later.
I also hope if they are into some shady doings that that comes to light as well.

Those 2 people need a serious attitude adjustment.

Misconduc: Anyone want to hold a "FARK YOU" sign out front of this place and get a photo?


Funny, I just looked this place up because I'm only a few miles from it. The Google review on the map says
"was yelled at by an old guy with white hair. We tossed down enough money to pay the bill and walked out. Save your money and don't go to Amy's Baking Company." -

But no I don't believe I will do that. I try to avoid crazy people.

The problem isn't how good is your food. There's a lot of folks that can make really good chow that fail miserably.

How good a manager are you? How good a boss? How good a negotiator?

How good a financial planner? How good at multitasking?

How good a conflict resolver? How good at managing 10 OTHER people's jobs while doing your own?

How good a designer are you? How good a personal trainer/dietician?

How good a sterilizer/sanitizer/clean freak are you?

How well can you manage a kindergarten classroom? While doing any five of the above listed? While cooking for 50?

These are just some of the skills needed to run a successful solo restaurant.

Well, they fired the little blond waitress for asking a question. It was a perfect example of Crazyeye's narcissism, because while everyone else heard the girl asking for clarification, she heard a snotty personal attack.

That said, the place won't close because he has money and is basically spending his money so that she has something to do besides drive him nuts all day. When he finally does run out of cash, they'll blame the closing on the Internet Bullies and Gordon Ramsey's attack.

She simply can not see that she sucks.

I'm not surprised they aired it, but I'm SHOCKED that ABC noted several times on their Facebook page that the show was coming up and for fans to tune in.

Also, if anyone "hacked" their account, they should be given a Vegas stage show doing comedy impressions. How could you watch the episode, and read their previous non-deleted comments, and think that anyone else was possibly making the all-caps angry posts?

So the question keeps coming up, if he was laundering money, why would he put himself on tv?

Well first things first, they don't seem to be lacking for money. Of all of these shows you see the breakdown moment where the owner goes "yeah I've run the place into the ground, and if I don't do something I'll be bankrupt soon." This guy turns people who want to spend money away. Even the most insane owners I've seen don't do that. I might understand an ill tempered owner telling people not to come back, but turning people away? Not once did they even mention the money being a problem, just that $1 million was invested in the bakery.

I'm sure to get on Kitchen Nightmares they had to open up the books, and if you look at the legit books, which they probably keep, it looks like a money pit spewing out cash. But when you have people who just don't care, it rasies more than a bit of suspicion. People can be full of themselves, but when you're looking at a million dollar investment, usually people get over themselves enough to start at least LOOKing at the problem.

They have done an amazing job putting up a front. Pictures stolen from other websites for their food on yelp and facebook. Meanwhile they are buying that stuff and reselling it. They figured for the money they were spending it would be good enough to pass any of Gordon's taste tests, of course it would have become super obvious to him when he didn't see her making any of the dough. Buy cheap, sell as high end, super easy way to cook the books.

This leads me to: The owners have a new source of illegal income, the current level of business isn't enough to turn that cash clean and useable without raising some eyebrows. Bring in Ramsey, they get a revamp, they get a temporary boost in sales related to people seeing it on TV and wanting to eat there, more actual business = more you can fudge. "oh yeah IRS, we did $50K a month right after the show, the publicity was great! I mean we have a ton of $5-$10 baked goods so a lot of people were paying in cash"

Whenever I see a bar that's cash only, I can only think one of two things, the owners are so super cheap and just dicks, or they are laundering money. You had to pay 2% on beer that you just sold to me on a 200% markup? boo-hoo.
