Reached by phone as they drove to their restaurant Tuesday morning, Amy and Samy each tried to talk over the other -- interrupting, yelling and even cursing one another as the conversation continued.

What amuses me most, I think, is her conviction that she is following god's plan. Personally, I'm on the fence with the whole god business, but she may just be onto something here. Suppose she IS following god's plan, it's just that he doesn't really want her to be a chef, he just wanted her to make a complete jackass out of herself in a public arena.

hubiestubert: ladyfortuna: Your words frighten me.

Lady, this is a County that KEEPS electing Sheriff Joe. What I saw out there made me long for the straight up corruption that is Massachusetts. At least the mobbed up asshats out here keep the neighborhoods safe. Seriously. Safest neighborhood I've been in out here had a meth lab--the guys who ran it made for damn sure that their clients weren't anywhere near, and ran anyone off who even thought about attracting attention. The mobbed up neighborhoods? Safe as houses.

Out in Phoenix? Whole different story, whole different ballgame. This is a town that still thinks of itself as the Wild West, only with more housing developments, a lot more industry cash, and a few sports teams and training camps. Even those aren't terrible safe. Worst shootings in the area have happened at or near those arenas. It is the first place that I've thought about carrying since Boston. Then I was making night deposits near the Combat Zone, back when it was still sketchy.  Phoenix and Maricopa is a Disneyland for violence and crazy, and none of the officials nor their Sheriffs nor their police are particularly inclined to do much about it, because the more headlines means harder crackdowns, more press, more funding, and herding folks into communities to flee the nastiness, which happened to be owned by folks who put the folks supposedly trying to "control" the problem into office.

Try Pema County. Nice folks. Decent. Maricopa?  It's Disneyland with golf, guns, and glory.

There is sooooo much crazy in the restaurant business.

CSB:

Years back when I was installing AV equipment, we ran across a guy building this beautiful bar who wanted the best equipment money could buy. The place was awesome, and the owner had a wish-list of electronics that was beyond anything we'd put together before. We had several meetings to map out his needs, and signed on the dotted line to provide it.

After ordering up the stuff, we make the trip to install it. We start by putting up the TV mounts.

Owner: "WHOA!...you aren't putting screws into my new walls are you? That can't happen".
Me: "This is where you wanted the TVs, right? How exactly do you suggest I mount them to the middle of the wall?"
Owner: "Not my problem, but you aren't putting screws in my walls."

It went downhill quick from there...to the point of having a very large stock of new TVs and stereo equipment.

Given the personality issues these two boneheads have I can't imagine it would have been too hard to get them to brag about their crimes over the phone.

In 2003, Amy Bouzaglo pleaded guilty to misuse of a Social Security number when she applied for a $15,000 bank loan. At the time, her name was Amanda Bossingham. She spent about a year in prison beginning in 2008.

fusillade762: hubiestubert: The sad thing?

These are FAR from the craziest folks in business in Maricopa.

I worked for a chef when I first got to Phoenix in the Biltmore area, who was running cover for some high class call girls. They could meet clients, evaluate them, and then use him as their billable, which he got a cut from, so that the agency could launder the cash. Very classy joint, and the kicker? His ex-wife was the sommelier--and just mere months from her Master Somelier status. For the non-food nerds, there are only about 200 Master Sommeliers in the world, and over half of them are in the US. She since got her certification, and is one of 18 women certified here in the US--and his partner. Did I mention that the chef was married? And that he often took out a bit of his "arrangement" out in trade? Oh, and did I mention THAT was part of the reason that his partner became his EX-wife? Don't get me wrong, Christopher did amazing food. He also employed a LOT of illegal labor, engaged in money transactions that even my mobbed up bosses of the past would have raised eyebrows about, and tended to scream at cooks, waitstaff and customers on a regular basis?

Amy? In comparison from what I saw in my years out in Phoenix, is sort of small potatoes, even for the crazy and business-sketchy...
