"Cookie Recipe-$250.00"

From: ok ([email protected])

A little background: Neiman-Marcus, if you don't know already! , is a very
expensive store; i.e., they sell your typical $8.00 T-shirt for $50.00.
Let's let them have it! THIS IS A TRUE STORY!

My daughter and I had just finished a salad at a Neiman-Marcus Cafe in
Dallas, and we decided to have a small dessert. Because both of us are
such cookie lovers, we decided to try the"Neiman-Marcus cookie." It was so
excellent that I asked if they would give me the recipe, and the waitress
said with a small frown, "I'm afraid not, but you can buy the recipe."

Well, I asked how much, and she responded, "Only two fifty-it's a great
deal!" I agreed to that, and told her to just add it to my tab. Thirty days
later, I received my VISA statement, and the Neiman-Marcus charge was
$285.00! I looked again, and I remembered I had only spent $9.95 for two
salads and about $20.00 for a scarf. As I glanced at the bottom of the
statement, it said, "Cookie Recipe-$250.00". That was outrageous!

I called Neiman's Acc! ounting Department and told them the waitress said
was "two fifty", which clearly does not mean "two hundred and fifty
dollars" by any reasonable interpretation of the phrase. Neiman-Marcus
refused to

They would not refund my money because, according to them, "What the
waitress told you is not our problem. You have already seen the recipe.
We absolutely will not refund your money at this point." I explained to the
Accounting Department lady the criminal statutes which govern fraud in the
state of Texas. I threatened to report them to the Better Business Bureau
and the Texas Attorney General's office for engaging in fraud.
I was basically told, "Do what you want. Don't bother thinking of how you
can get even, and don't bother trying to get any of your money back." I
just said, Okay, you folks got my $250, and now I'm going to have $250
worth of fun." I told her that I was going to see to it that every cookie
lover in the Uni! ted Stateswith an e-mail account has a $250 cookie recipe
from Neiman-Marcus...for free. She replied, "I wish you wouldn't do this."
I said, "Well, perhaps you should have thought of that before you ripped
me off!" and slammed down the phone. So here it is!

please pass it on to everyone you
can possibly think of. I paid $250 for this, and I don't want
Neiman-Marcus to EVER make another penny off of this recipe!
