It has come full circle..

Once upon a time...
I was a young college girl of 18 and thought I was the coolest kid on the block
because I worked at Abercrombie & Fitch.
It was my first "real" job.
I mean, who wouldn't want to wear layered tank tops and ripped up jeans?!
And basically get paid to stand around with that guy wearing said jeans?!
So yeah. Cool stuff.

Anyway, I quickly {after 8 months} realized I was meant to do more with my life.
Though, what that was exactly, well, I'm still trying to figure that out 8 years later...
But moving on.

Tonight, I got a letter in the mail.
From the Orange County Superior Court.
Abercrombie & Fitch has once again been sued (what else is new?).
I quickly scan the letter:

Legal Notice...
Class Action Settlement from 2003...
Claim Amount...

And would you look at that?
I'll be getting approximately $180.59.
Something about not paying for travel wages and meal periods?
I'm not exactly sure. I told you I quickly scanned.
When you're offered free money, take it.
Don't ask questions.

So thank you, Abercrombie.
For not only providing me my first college job, 
but for compensating me 9 years later.

Let's go celebrate, friends!
Drinks on me.



  1. Hahaha, my sister got part of the settlement years ago because Abercrombie stopped scheduling her because a regional manager came to the store and told the store manager that she "didn't fit their image". Apparently Mexican and not stick thin is not their image so she had to go. Awesome!!

  2. Nice! I would love to randomly get some $ in the mail!

  3. every once in a while i'll get settlements from AE. it's like a random christmas present... why would i deny myself that!?

  4. Can someone puh-lease sue the Gap so I can get some moneyz? Slaved away there as a professional tag tucker for 4 years! Ugh. Buy me a drank?

  5. Ha! Just got one of those myself the other day, totally thought it was a scam before I opened up the envelope. But since I only worked at Hollister for about 3 weeks during a Christmas break when I was 18, I'm only getting $17. Still, free money is free money!

    PS, recently started reading your blog via my roommate Amy over at Sweet Home SB and I love it! So keep up the good work :)

  6. Gotta be freakin kidding me. You gonna fight it?

  7. this is hilarious! i worked at hollister while in college (a million years ago, it seems) and my husband (boyfriend back then) worked at a&f and we got a similar letter several years ago!

    something about discrimination against minorities or something ... all i cared about was FREE MONAAAAY! haaaay!

  9. oh lord I used to be a manager for 'crombie for 3 years. always getting those notices in the mail! Thanks for the free money!!
    Get it girl!

  10. Love it! Nope you cannot turn down free money!

  11. Weird how those are the best emails! Haha! That's awesome.

  12. Haha, my friend not only worked for Abercrombie... he was in their catalog. Wonder if he's lucky enough to be sharing this payday with you. If so... drinks are on him.

  13. haha. that's so great! and you still look the same 9 years ago! :D
