More on the ostentatious lifestyle of Ausaf Umar Siddiqui, the Fry's Electronics executive who blew $120 million in Las Vegas casinos over three years, then tried to embezzle money to cover his gambling debts. From Mercury News:
Fiji water, grouped in bottles of three. Golden raisins and warmed mixed nuts. Aramis cologne and badger hair shaving brush. Lint-free towels. Dom Perignon Rose champagne and Kurosawa Sake in the fridge. And never, under any circumstances, approach him from behind.
If they didn't want to face Mr. S's wrath, maids knew to arrange bowls of Glitterati Mentissimo peppermints adorned with a single rose throughout his suite, and to stock his shower with Nioxin shampoo for "fine and thinning hair." White vases were a no-no – he considered them bad luck.
Oddly, these are exactly the same requests for service I make when I walk into a Fry's.
