"As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy, and to make plans."--Ernest Hemingway

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 Accounting Department and told them
the waitress 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
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 United States with 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.


Please, please, 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!
