Happy Mother's Day story

About a week ago I saw on FaceBook that you could "friend" Einstein Bros Bagels and they'd link you to a coupon for a free bagel and shmear. So I did that, and amusingly the coupon said "do not duplicate," as if they could tell how many times I printed it out...

So I made 4 copies, just in case I wanted more than 1 bagel. As it turns out, The only Einstein Bros in town are all really far from my house, but there is one near my parents' house, and I though maybe my Mom would want to go to brunch there. Then I realized that Sunday was Mother's day, so I asked Mom if she wanted to go get a bagel. So we did that, then she wanted to show me this house they own up in Marana, and on the way there we passed another Einstein Bros location. I jokingly said "hey - I have 2 more free bagel coupons - we could stop again!" Mom was like "We just ate! Maybe on the way back."

Sure enough, on the way back we stopped for another free bagel. See what a good son I am? Not 1 but TWO free bagels for Mom for Mother's day!

You might think that's kinda cheap, or cheesy, "Here Mom, happy Mother's Day... have a free bagel." But you don't know my mother. She's really into bargain hunting, and there's nothing she likes better than getting something for free. She couldn't have been more proud.

That's a great story. My mom also enjoys a good bargain and has taught all of her sons how to hunt for that good buy. To this day, most people don't know that most of my clothes come from Savers.
