Well, the folks from Amy's Baking Company are sure making their newly-hired publicistwork for their money. After their horrificly hilarious episode of "Kitchen Nightmares," a former employee came out and did an AMA with Reddit, revealing some of the ridiculous rules in place at the restaurant. Now Samy and Amy Bouzaglo's full list of policies is on display.

Radar Online obtained a full list of the rules, which you can viewhere. Some of the wackiest of which are as follows. (And trust us when we say it was hard to pluck our five faves.):

6). You must leave the premise immediately after your scheduled shift, and no family or friends may come to see you while working. 8). No purses or bags are allowed inside ABC, (exceptions may be made) however upon leaving a designated employee of ABC has the legal right and consent to inspect any and all packages that you may have brought with you.

11) No visiting or unnecessary talking is allowed during your work shift. This causes distractions and results in loss of product. Any may result in possible harm to you, or to others.

13). Any product such as food or plates that are broken or burned due to direct negligence will be taken from your pay check at ABC's cost.

16) Holidays and Weekends are Mandatory, by signing this contract you are accepting that you will be required to work all Holidays, and Weekends. Due to the nature of our Industry this is a necessity and any No-Show will be monetarily penalized with a fee of $250.00.

So what's the excuse on this one, guys? Were your company documents hacked, too?
