>>>  Subject:  Everyone loves cookies
>>>  My daughter & I had just finished a salad at the Neiman-Marcus
>>>  Cafe in Dallas and decided to have a small dessert.  Because both
>>>  of us are such cookie lovers, we decided to try the"Neiman-Marcus
>>>  Cookie."
>>>  (EDITORIAL COMMENT: Neiman's is a VERY EXPENSIVE depart-
>>>  ment store.)
>>>  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."
>>>  "Well," I said, "would you let me buy the recipe?"  With a cute
>>>smile, she said, "Yes."  I asked how much, and she responded,
>>>  "Only two fifty, it's a great deal!"  I said with approval, "Just add
>>>  it to my tab."
>>>  Thirty days later, I received my VISA statement from Neiman-
>>>Marcus and it 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's outrageous!  I called Neiman's accounting
>>>  Dept. and told them the waitress said it was "two-fifty," which
>>>clearly does not  mean "two hundred and fifty dollars" by any
>>>POSSIBLE interpretation of the phrase.
>>>  Neiman-Marcus refused to budge. 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 her the criminal statutes that govern fraud in Texas.
>>>  I threatened to report them to the Better Business Bureau and the
>>>state's Attorney General for engaging in fraud. I was basically told
>>>"Do what you want, we don't care, and we're not refunding your
>>>money.  I waited, thinking of how I could get even, or even try
>>>  and get any of my money back.
>>>  I  just said, "Okay, you folks got my $250, and now I'm going to
>>>have $250.00 worth of fun." I told her that I was going to see to it
>>>  that every cookie lover in the United States with an e-mail
>>>  account has a $250.00 cookie recipe from Neiman-Marcus...for free.
>>>  She said, "You wouldn't do this."
>>>  I said, "Well, you should have thought of that before you ripped
>>>  me off," and slammed down the phone on her.  So, here it is!!!
>>>Please, please, please pass it on.  I paid $250 dollars for this
>>>... I don't want Neiman-Marcus to ever get another penny off of
>>>this recipe....
