Ausaf Omar Siddiqui, the Fry’s Electronics executive who squandered $120 million in Las Vegas casinos over three years and then tried to misappropriate money to cover his gambling debts, had a whole big list of lavish fancies. “ Fiji water, grouped in a bottle 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.”
The maids made sure they arranged bowls of Glitterati Mentissimo Peppermints with a single rose throughout the suite, so they didn’t have to be a victim of Mr. Siddiqui’s fury. They also stocked his shower with Nixon shampoo, and white vases were a total no-no for him since he considered bad luck.
