My day was shitty. I felt sick. I offered to get bagels for the whole office and everybody had complicated and specific requirements. At Einstein Bagels I rattled off the whole order to the clerk, apologizing for my coworker's demands, as he smiled at me and told me not to worry about it. After I paid for everything, I moved out of the way and waited.
"Hey, you wanted the chocolate chip bagel right?" he asked while handing me the ginormous brown paper bag.
"Um, yeah, why?"
"Oh, nothing." He smiled.
When I got back to the office, I handed out everybody's breakfast and went back to my seat, eager to tear into my freshly toasted bagel. I opened the paper bag and smiled. Inside were two chocolate chip bagels. I only ordered one.
Thank you. You have no idea how that changed my day.
To the Einstein Bros Bagels sign... That's what she said.
