I meant to say that they offered the lamest excuse possible; one taken by numerous athletes, celebrities and general fools who have gone on ill-advised rampages against friends and haters alike. And honestly, I might be inclined to believe the folks at Amy’s, were it not for the documented-by-video-camera freakouts in which they fired an employee for asking a question (“she had an attitude,” owner Amy Bouzaglo claimed/shouted)[3].
