Here’s just another indication that no matter what you do, someone will have a problem with it.
A guy named Alek Krautmann brought two boxes of bagels into work. Nice guy, right? Well, maybe not because most of the internet seems to hate him right now. But, why?
Krautmann tweeted a picture of the open Panera boxes with the caption, “Today I introduced my coworkers to the St. Louis secret of ordering bagels bread sliced. It was a hit!”
Instead of a whole bagel, or each being sliced in half, either way, these bagels are sliced like you would find a loaf of bread…and people are SHOOK!

One person tweeted, quote, “You should be ashamed of yourself.”

One guy is pretty sure Krautmann should be fired.

And this…well, this wins the internet for me.

Would just ANYONE slice bagels like this? All willy-nilly? The answer is, “NO!”
I work in a bakery that makes bread & bagels every morning…. If someone asked me to “bread slice” bagels I’d refuse service. I have standards and a healthy respect for bagels.

“St. Louis style?” The fine people of St. Louis are denying any connection to bagels cut like this.
I’m from St. Louis and I’ve never seen a carb treated so callously! How dare you sir!
But…since we’re both from St. Louis, I’ll ask you the St. Louis question…where’d you go to high school?
Enough of these niceties…how dare you sully those bagels.

What in the fresh hell is this? I am from STL and have never seen this evil in my life @MBGlenn

Panera has Krautmann’s back though. They Tweeted, “next time bagels are on us, sliced however you’d like.”
Hey Alek, next time bagels are on us, sliced however you’d like. ?? Can you DM us?

I think this is brilliant! You’ve got 12 bagels for 20 people, hoping that everyone will take just a half. But no, Tim in Accounting is greedy and you know he will take a whole bagel AND stick another in his pocket for later.
Even though Susan in Purchasing is Keto strict, she has been known to take a whole bagel back to her dog Sasha.
Oh and look out for Tina in Research and Development…she has a habit of ripping a piece off with her filthy hands.
When bringing bagels to the office for co-workers to share, it really does make more sense to have them sliced like this. Even if it does look like a carbohydrated crime scene.
