Ever wondered what random thoughts and ideas lurk in the minds of gap employees? If you haven’t sat around coming up with unique and weird questions to ask your coworkers, then you’ve clearly never been at a loss for a blog topic. Since I have experienced both of these phenomenons, I thought it only fair to share what I found out when I posed said questions to gappers!

When you go on a trip, when do you pack?
The night before x 7
When I can procrastinate no longer
About 2 days before if I’m excited, then repack the night before because I’m paranoid I forgot something
I think about it for weeks. Pack in the midnight hours before the trip, usually too busy to do it at an earlier time but way too excited to sleep anyway
I start planning my outfits in advance in case I need to go shopping. I normally pack the night before
2 weeks before, then end up taking everything out because I ran out of clothes
What do you think about when you’re alone in the car?
What I’m going to eat for dinner that night / Food x3
What would happen if an asteroid landed nearby and I became radioactively enhanced, consequently forcing me to choose between living my life as a hero or a rockstar villain
Why is the radio so annoying, why are all the people driving around me so annoying, why does it take me so long to get home?
How Macaulay Culkin actually gets lost in Home Alone 2: Lost in New York…I mean he’s on the plane with them at some point…does he get lost in the airport? I can’t remember
I hope I don’t butt dial someone to hear me “sing” along with the radio
How FM 94.9 has taken a HUGE turn for the worse lately, who the heck is in charge there?!?!
Why don’t we have flying cars yet?
Data. No Joke.
Would you rather slap a bear in the face or throw a snowball at a tiger?
Snowball at a tiger. Then we’d be BFFs
Hard choice, done both and they were equally satisfying
Slap a bear (far more empowering)
Throw a snowball at a tiger. Tigers are my favorite animal; it would be an honor to get that close to one. Plus if it was to attack they go straight for the jugular, bears slice and dice. Haven’t you ever heard the audio of Grizzly Man’s death? No bears, no thanks
I got kicked out of a zoo for trying the second one
gap impact summary:
- We like old school rock and oldies!
- We are fairly trusting with our kids, probably because only one of the people who took part in this questionnaire has a kid.
- Gary’s hockey stick is pretty darn famous.
- We’ve got some interesting ideas of “cool” people that we “want to be.”
- A lot of us have nice white teeth because we brush our teeth before bed.
- We like coffee… and we like food… we really really like food.
- Only a few of us are crazy enough to pack more than the night before a trip.
