Staff guarded its most recent bagel closely; it was not left unattended for even a second. Unfortunately, when cream cheese is involved, what Jeff cannot steal with stealth and cunning he will take by force.
Jeff staked out the bagel from the coffee table. When no cream cheese was forthcoming, Jeff leaned in and began taking swipes at it. Sometimes he hit the bagel, sometimes he hit the Staff.
Jeff daintily licked the hard-won cream cheese from his paw. Staff plans to eat future bagels standing up, or possibly hiding in the closet.
