OMG! That's not right at all. And btw, i'm going to state the obvious here but one croissant will not dramatically effect your weight.

Does Abercrombie & Fitch actually have any sort of influence these days, apart from promoting underage nude models and producing rubbish clothes?

I can understand why Prada fired that woman earlier this year for her "appearance", since Prada actually qualifies for the minimal title of "fashion". But A&F sound like they're doing it just for the attention, in the hopes that they'll appear "fashionable" and "strict".

Speaking of which, does anyone know where I can buy a Croissant maker?

lolwat
we should all celebrate this by eating two croissants idk
I personally,always thought that A&F was tacky and overhyped but this as I said before this is just stupid they don't even sell clothes or an image,they sell sex x__x .On the other hand,How come they do this to Fry ? He has feelings too.

basically, we have a 20 minute break to eat a meal and move our car (because AF does not reimburse mall employees for parking). so i would go to wetzels pretzels to get as much carbs as i could so i would not pass out during the 5 hours of standing on my feet. So i was in the back eating and two managers and an employee walked into the break room and sat down. When they saw me eating they made a comment about how bad it was because it is bread, it is covered in oil and salt, etc. after leaving the break room, one manager came back in and said I need to go out on the floor, I said I had 5 minutes left of my break, to which she responded "you can't continue your break to eat that disgusting sh!t." I looked at her like she was crazy, then she saw me pull out my second pretzel and gasped "you have ANOTHER one?? no way, your break is over, go on the floor." I said i will finish my break and my pretzel, to which she said she was sick of my attitude and told me to go home.

I wasn't fired, but it still wasn't an okay thing to do. The managers are all only a few years older than the sales people, so they dont really understand how something sounds in a professional environment. But she did basically send me home because she didn't like what i was eating.

Yeah this goes way further than just "eating too much". It's practically up against the law.

This is making me doubt very much that the reason for his firing was because he ate the croissant "at an inappropriate time" since it seems like to them, all the time is an inappropriate time for carbs...

This is one of the dumbest story I've read in quite some time. Talk about making an issue out of a non issue.

It sucks to lose a job and maybe this news will bring other opportunities for Bael.

I've seen his Polaroids before and now I'll definitely remember him.

Amen. Somehow his eating one croissant just isn't that much of a turnoff.

There's no way he should be fired for a croissant unless he was using a pair of AF jeans as napkin.

Man now I want a BLT croissant.
