Bagels at Staples

Today we went on a (very exciting, might I add) school supplies shopping spree to Staples. (That was a lot of s’s.) Woohoo!

My mother and I took up a divide-and-conquer strategy of rounding up our desired purchases. When I met up with her again, triumphantly bearing ten folders for $1, I was a little surprised to find her in the check-out line, complacently munching on a bagel.

“Where’d you get that?” I queried, a tad jealously. (I like bagels.)

She gestured towards the front of the store, where indeed I saw a tray of bagels and a couple coffee dispensers sitting unguarded on a table. I asked if they were free and was told that they were.

Why Staples, the office supply store, would provide breakfast to their customers is beyond my comprehension. Do they want a reputation around town as a place where tramps can grab some grub? Are they trying to keep their shoppers in the store as long as possible in hopes that maybe, their stomachs full of bagels and caffeine, they’ll decide that they want that laser printer after all? Or is there a more sinister reason? Are these bagels of mass destruction???

Whatever. I’m an opportunist. I went on over and got myself a bagel.

Returning to my mother, I asked, “Are you sure they’re free? It’s making me nervous.”

A blond lady standing in front of us, who had apparently been pleased enough by the free food to loosen up the spending a little, smiled.

It’s nice to know I’m entertaining people.

    Tess- Ahh! My site has been invaded by TessaComments! šŸ˜‰

    bk- It’s okay, I get behind on my emailing ALL the time. I just wanted to make sure the email had actually reached you, since my Gmail account has been acting funky lately. Lol, and now I’m not just targeting bubbles and toilets, but bagels too…
