Neiman Marcus Cookies Recipe

An email that i got today:

This is a true story. 
Please forward when you finish reading!

A little background:
Neiman-Marcus, if you don’t know already, is a very expensive boutique
shop (they sell a typical $8.00 T-shirt for $50.00)

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

I asked how much, and she responded; ‘Only two fifty – it’s a great
deal’I agreed to that, and told her to add it to my bill.
Thirty days later, I got my Visa statement, and the Neiman-Marcus charge
was $285. I looked at it again, and I remembered I had only spent $9.95
for two sandwiches and about $20 for a scarf. At the bottom of the
statement, it said, ‘Cookie Recipe – $250.00’. That was outrageous!

I called Neiman’s Accounting Department and told them the waitress had
said it was ‘two fifty’, which clearly does not mean ‘two hundred and
fifty dollars’ by any reasonable 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.

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. 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 said, OK, you’ve 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 world with an e-mail account gets a $250 cookie recipe from
Neiman-Marcus for free. She replied, ‘I wish you wouldn’t do that.’ 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 from this recipe!

The Chaser’s War On Everything pulls of another sweet prank!! Although they might have taken it a little to far this time as they have been charged and may face 6 months gaol. Currently they are on bail till they appear in court next month. EDIT: An interview with the boys claim that they spoke with the lawyers before they decided to do the prank, so good news for chaser fans :)

Overall $330 million was spent on security and the chaser boys made it 10 metres from George Bush’s hotel.
