As anxious as I’ve been to get out of retail and into the world of journalism, I will have to say that I will definitely miss falling into the Gap on a regular basis and this was really drilled into my head last night when I had a going away, goodbye dinner with my Gap folk at Macaroni Grill. My friend and coworker Khristina was the one who hatched the plan (as usual) on Tuesday or Wednesday. I was expecting maybe, four or five of us since it was on a Friday night and we were putting it together on such a short notice. It expanded to almost 20 people! I was so touched to have not only my current coworkers, but former ones as well.
This is one thing I know I’ll definitely miss. My head of store, Lindsay, offered to transfer me over to the Gap in Idaho Falls but I’m hesitant. Not only do I not know what my schedule will be like once I get there, but our Gap family is somewhat of an oddity because we’re all so close that I’m pretty sure they’ve ruined me for all other Gaps. It just wouldn’t be the same to work at a Gap without that bond we all share (cue cheesy music, please!).
Here are more highlights from dinner:
Okay, not really. He was home for the weekend because he’s going to be working and he stopped by.
He drew our Gap family on the table.
Can you tell that we were having fun with the crayons and paper tablecloth?
People brought their significant others and families as well. So, of course the Petr Burrito (aka Antea Olivia) made an appearance.
I love my Gap family. I don’t know What I’m going to do when I’m in Idaho without them!
