Dear Mike Jeffries and your very bad, no good company,
Did you actually say all those things the articles are claiming you said? You know, all those shocking things about not wanting fat or ugly people to wear Abercrombie and Fitch clothing?
(Click here to see one of many articles about Mike Jeffries' philosophy.)
I imagine you've taken a lot of heat for those comments, but you really got me thinking. Let me take just a moment to thank you. That's right, thank you.
Just as I strive to be a good role model for my children while pointing out other good role models for my children, I think it is equally beneficial to show children how NOT to behave.
Thanks to your words and actions I can tell my children:
"Don't be small-minded like Mike Jeffries and his lousy company."
"Some people never mature past high school, and they stay small and petty like Mike Jeffries and his lousy company."
"There's more important things in life than the way you look, and once you truly understand that you'll be smarter than CEO Mike Jeffries and his lousy company."
"Respect people for their insides not the way they look on the outside unlike Mike Jeffries and his lousy company."
"You're beautiful the way you are and anyone who tells you differently is being
"Life is full of opportunities and people who will value hard work. Don't ever think you need to work for someone like Mike Jeffries and his lousy company." (Click here to read one example of why you don't want to work there.)
"There are plenty of people who think like Mike Jeffries and his lousy company.
Don't let them sway your opinion regarding what is fair and right."
"When you need new clothes, I'll gladly take you shopping anywhere other than at Mike Jeffries' lousy company."
So, yes, Mike Jeffries, thank you for being such a narcissistic Loser (yes, that "L" is capital). I can teach my children lots and lots and lots of lessons just by looking at your hot mess of a corporate culture.
A normal-sized, average-looking mom with money in her pocket and a commitment to never buy from your lousy company again
PS - I googled your name because I was dying to see what you looked like. I figured you must be one handsome looking man. Bwaaahaaaahaaaahaahaha. Oh, the irony of your stance on ugly people!
