Damn You Cursed Cosi Cookie!
Yesterday I walked into my boss’ office and spotted a giant cookie on his desk from Cosi, still in it’s plastic wrapping. I looked closely at the cookie, and despite how tasty it appeared to be, I knew that he had not meant to purchase this particular cookie. It had raisins in it. And while many people enjoy a good oatmeal raisin cookie from time to time, there was something about this raisin cookie, clearly masquerading as a chocolate chip cookie, that said to me ”this was a mistake”.
Me: “Hey man. What’s up with the cookie?”
Boss: “Awww yeah. Looks delicious, right?”
Me: “Really? I think you might have bought the wrong cookie.”
Boss: “What do you mean? Cosi cookies are great.”
Me: “That cookie has raisins in it.”
Boss: “No.” (looks closer at cookie) “NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! It was in the chocolate chip cookie bin. Those bastards!”
It’s not hard to see how he made the mistake. From afar it looked like a chocolate chip cookie. Even one of the raisins had smeared up against the plastic wrapping, saying ”Look at me! I’m like a melted chocolate chip! Hahaha! You wanted a dessert, but now you’re eating healthy fruit!!!”
Is there anything worse than biting into a cookie you think is filled with chocolate chips, only to discover raisins? Luckily I was able to save my boss in time. Let this be a lesson to the rest of you. Never trust signs. And never trust raisins.
