While I'm on retail matters ...
The Gap has apparently implemented a new security system.
Security labels are now being sewn inside the garments themselves, allowing the consumer to have to "REMOVE BEFORE WASHING OR WEARING."
And guess who couldn't find their scissors this morning?
I know myself pretty well. And I know that I'll forever be forgetting to take these things off. A new life awaits as I aimlessly set off theft detectors throughout the state and/or ruin clothing that I have thrown into the dryer set to high heat.
For an over-priced, quality-challenged sweater, the sales associate is going to have to cut it off for me.
