I never hear U2 when I'm shopping, but I hear their songs quite a bit when I'm eating out. I've heard U2 songs at Applebees and Fazoli's and a couple other places.

Go Gap! Go Holiday!! Go Newport Kids and Baby!!! Go markdowns causing cranky customers asking to speak to the manager! Dammit, that's me! I have been awake since Thanksgiving and I'll be awake until New Year's Day (and trust me, all is NOT quiet on New Year's Day...) and I'm not in the mood!

BOOMCHA- What store are you at?

kariann- Where do you work if not in the stores? Are you one of those poor customer relations people? If so, I'm sorry about the lady who got mad when I didn't take back the dirty jacket her child was wearing because a few stitches were coming out of the seem.

I wouldn't say I "like" it.
But I can't be very picky considering jobs aren't easy to find these days. (that made me sound really selfish, didn't it?)

i just heard Discotheque (new mix) at Gap on friday, and Electrical Storm at Red Lobster.
that was a weird day, I can see the downside especially at Gap but I enjoyed it.

its common knowledge. if you want me to look up sources i will.

i thought everyone knew this? gap along with nike are two of the worst exploiters of third world citizens.

besides the companies are massive. its so stale, they have no idea whats going on, rather they convince people whats in fashion through neverending advertising that really sucks.

ok, so that last part was based on perspective.

surely you know that you can find better clothes (and ten times cheaper without the big label!) almost anywhere else.

gap is the mcdonalds of the fashion world.

except you pay far too much for the product that was built by little hands.

at least their clothes taste as good as a mcdonalds "happy meal."

Schmeg-

I work for the Direct division in the call center. Thank god not customer relations! I get to transfer those calls unless they deal with online. I am just happy that I have survived yet another holiday season. The week before Christmas was sheer hell...if I had one more person demanding the mini striped scarf I may have run screaming mad for the door at one point!

U2 songs tend to stalk me

I remember hearing I Will Follow in a Gap Outlet, that was fun, i was walking around looking at pants singing along and i was getting all these weird looks.

And then i walked down to the other end and they started playing Beautiful day in claires. I also remember MW playing in CVS once ( Cheap nail polish moves in mysterious ways?) and i was in a Today's man store (think ties, stuff for dads) and Baby please come home came on.

My theory is that myself and all U2 fans have some kind of U2 song ESP, so that U2 songs follow them whereever they go. It happens on the radio too. I'll just have the random urge to turn on the radio and stuck will come on, or i'll hop in the car and in two seconds i'll here Lardences drooms from SBS. Does this happen to you guys too? Ah well.

I know what you mean!!!
I'll be listening to a song on a station, when all of a sudden, I get this U2-ey feeling that I need to change stations and BAM!!! U2 is on!!!

Yep that's happened to me. The other day I forgot my cd's and was flipping around the channels to avoid commercials when I finally settled on one and the urge hit me to switch stations and sure enough there it was I Still Haven't Found...just starting. Right before Christmas I had been listening to a cd and decided to switch to the radio and had been thinking about wanting to hear Baby Please Come Home and it was the next song.

Just about every time I went into the shops this Christmas I heard U2 ... mostly 'Electrical Storm' (which is really strange because I have only heard it ONCE on the radio here ... but I've heard a lot of others as well ... a lot from 'All that You Can't Leave Behind' ... I don't mind at all

If I'll have a LUCKY DAY, I always get signs from the speakers of the stores. When I get my ticket to Dublin I got SIAM and right before I met Bono I listened In Dublin HMV the Amstrong mix of the Stay... And I knew something would happened.

Anyway, here in Hungary I often heard SIAM, Desire, Fly, Electrical Storm...

...em...to digress a bit back to the issue of sweat shops & the garment industry....the exploitation of child & women labor in non-western countries is indeed a very REAL and UGLY issue. Go to sweatshops.org or sweatshopwatch.org to educate yerself on this.

...we all choose our own battles, but this is issue is just another bit of unfairness that that powerful nations impose on smaller ones....kind of like DEBT....

If Bono got behind this issue, you'd all listen....you are all good of heart, I'm sure, so check this issue out on your own....

ok...I get down off soapbox now...

And would these clothes be sweatshop-free? If so, are there any stores you can recommend?

glad someone mentioned the sweatshop thing because thats one of the reasons i dont shop at Gap, Old Navy and Banana Republic since they are the same company. My sisters think I'm odd because I refuse to wear the clothes from there. Bu last time that I went with my sister they were playing Disco so I didn't complain as much.

well for starters, dont look for clothes with massive labels.

actually i cant recommend you any stores. rather, i say look at the tag on the article of clothing your interested in, and see where its made.

if its made in indonesia or some other far away (from america) country, theres a good chance it was made by very young hands.

but go to those websites that the other person mentioned.

seriously people, you should consider boycotting places like the gap.

I do too since I detest shopping. It'd definitely make it more tolerable.
