So my girlfriend called me and said that she just got done with an interview with the hollister clothes store at our local mall. I kinda got pissed when she told me though. and i guess for two reasons:
1. I hate that store and its stupid apparel and the image it poses on the people who wear the clothes from there.
2. I know some dudes who work there who are the grade A jackass high school assshole, and I've know how these dudes act and i don't want her near them for long periods of time.
3. Out of all the places in the world, why do you have to work there?!11

I told her I wasn't cool with that, and she got real pissed.... so my question is:

Should you take where your significant other's work into consideration? or was i just being dumb ...?

It's a job, be happy for her.

Hollister is for pussies. You can beat that kids ass if you need to.

It doesn't matter that much. You gotta earn money somehow. I'd do it, if I didn't have a choice. I wouldn't wear a single hollister item, though.

Anyway, I'd probably be innappropriate for the job, cos I'm immature and have less fashion sense than Pete Wentz has masculinity.

Its so sad that not everyone can be as inconforming as you, TS.

1) The kid is his girlfriend. Girls usually posses pussies. Usually.

2)Do you normally beat up girls, or just ones that try to create a little independence for themselves through making money?

I think you were being dumb. Just let her work and get income. If you're angry about the guys there, I wouldn't date a girl who would cheat on me with them. If you're angry about the people who wear the clothes; I'm almost positive not all of them are the same. Don't generalize. If you're angry about the actual clothes themselves; Just get over it. They're clothes. If you're angry because she chose to work there; I'd just get over it.

Well, at least she's not performing abortions or testing biochemical weapons. Just deal with it.

My last girlfriend was pretty preppy and wore a lot of that hollister and abercrombie **** that I hate, but I loved her enough to not give a **** what she wore.

Plus it was always funny to see the other chicks like her reacting to seeing her with a guy that looks like Cliff Burton.

I was talking about the kid he knows that works there that is an asshole and doesnt want his gf around.

um. it's a clothing store. it's over-priced, yes, but it's just a clothing store. and her employment there affects you in no way. drop your stupid high school reservations about it and just be glad your girlfriend has a job.

on a similar note, i knew this girl who got a job there. she was kind of ugly, so i was surprised when she told me, since they tend to hire...you know, good looking people. anyway, it turned out they kept her in the back, lifting heavy boxes and shit.

It's a mainstream clothing store...And, although I can't prove this, I think the reason a lot (not all) of people hate it is because it's popular, trendy, and people just want to be noncomformist.

No, Hollister is a preppy clothing brand in the US.

All my jeans have holes in the legs. It's how my feet get out...


Yes, I know you mean extra holes. Why not just buy cheap ass jeans and rip them yourself?
#29
I have a lot of friends who work at hollister/ a&f. I don't think that really defines your personality. It only defines you if you let it. You are embracing a stereotype despite the fact that you insist you are nonconformist. People like you are so full of **** its unbelievable.

Well, in that case, I think he should dump her because she obviously deserves a decent, secure boyfriend who isn't a judgmental asswipe.
#34
I think you should just let her work there. I would apologize and be happy for her. Be grateful you have a responsible girlfriend that is willing to work and get money for herself. In fact I would kill for a girl that makes the effort to work. I don't know many girls that don't mooch off of their parents for money.

I'm glad at least you didn't pull the "zomg hollister is so fukking retarted is for st00pid prepyyzzz hot topic is sooo much better lolz" card.

-This job will pay very well.
-Your girlfriend will be happy.
-You'll possibly get free clothes from her.

I don't see the problem. I'd love to work at Hollister, but there are none around.

my friend claims that working at a Hollister ruined her brother. apparently he gained Ego Boost +300 and spent all the time showboating/bragging etc. after getting the job. now my source could be biased, so watch out. i'm just relaying the information.

that said, i think it could only get bad if she lets it. heck, i imagine being a janitor COULD make you feel worthless, if you decide to view the job that way.

i dont feel that the way you worded the poll in this thread is really relevant to the thread. it seems more like 'is it bad to work at X' than 'is it bad to care where they work'

where's the "you're an idiot" option? Stop being so anti-scene you retard. Get on with what you want to do rather than complain about what other people do.
I hope your girlfriends interview went well, wish her good luck from me (assuming she knows that you're talking about her on the internet)!

That's ridiculous. Yeah, you should care about where they work, but Hollister? There's nothing wrong with that store.
