5 Possibilities Explaining The Existence Of Mattress Firm

There just has to be something else going on.

5 Possibilities Explaining The Existence Of Mattress Firm

When was the last time you bought a new mattress? Think about it for a second. You probably don't even remember. You may have no memories of ever even buying one. After all, you have probably been sleeping on your current mattress for most of your life. I mean, mattresses should last a long time. It's not like you need to get a new one very often. However, if I were to ask you to name the first mattress store that you could think of, you would almost without a doubt, with very little hesitation, say "Mattress Firm."

Why? Because Mattress Firm stores are everywhere. EVERYWHERE. There seems to be one on practically every corner and in every shopping center if not more than one. I've seen two of them right across the street from each other, and even three within way too small of a radius. People just don't need to buy mattresses very often. We don't need anywhere near the amount of Mattress Firms that exist. How can it possibly be profitable for them to operate that many stores? It doesn't make sense. They cannot be selling enough mattresses to justify the number of stores they have. There has to be something else going on with this overly saturated chain of mattress stores. I don't know what it is, but here are five possibilities.

1. Money Laundering Scheme

Mattress Firm has a lot of stores, all over the place, which makes it seem like a definite possibility that the whole operation is a giant money laundering scheme. Who are they laundering money for? It's difficult to say, but the whole thing seems like it could definitely be a giant front for some massive illegal operation. I mean, who would question a mattress store? Those responsible for helping ensure that millions of people get a good night's sleep every night couldn't possibly have a sinister side to them... or could they??

2. Magical Illusion

Another possibility is that Mattress Firm simply does not actually exist. Maybe it's nothing but an elaborate illusion created by forces beyond our control, or by some highly skilled illusionist. That seems more plausible to me then believing that there are actually that many mattress stores, so perhaps magic is involved in some way.

3. Actual Mattress Store

This is obviously the most unlikely of all the scenarios, but I've decided to still acknowledge it as a theoretical possibility. Maybe Mattress Firm really is just a chain of mattress stores, with nothing more going on whatsoever. Maybe every single one really is just a mattress store and nothing more. Maybe the company's main objective really is to just sell mattresses. It seems highly unlikely, but I suppose it's possible.

4. Alien Fortress

Somewhere out there in the vast expanse of the universe, maybe extraterrestrial beings exist, occupying their planet while completely unaware of Planet Earth. Or, maybe aliens have already arrived on our planet, through the disguise of Mattress Firm. Perhaps the mattress chain is actually a group of alien fortresses, allowing these beings of another world to collect intelligence on the human race. I'm just saying, next time you go to Mattress Firm, keep an eye on whatever salesman you talk to because there is a slight chance that they are actually an alien life form plotting the demise of humanity.

5. Government Laboratory

There must be something suspicious occurring inside the walls of Mattress Firm, and maybe the government is actually responsible. Maybe the stores are actually secret government laboratories containing our nation's deepest, darkest, most securely held secrets. Perhaps the stores are actually sites where questionable government experiments and surveillance projects take place. You just never know.

Perhaps one of these possibilities is the truth behind Mattress Firm, or perhaps there is another, even more complicated, and possibly more sinister, explanation. What is the real explanation for the existence of this mattress store? The world may never know. But, there is simply no way that they are only selling mattresses.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
