This is an email I got from a friend recently, thought anyone reading may be interested:

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 shop; i.e. they sell a 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
lunch at a Neiman-Marcus Cafe in Dallas. 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 $285.00. I looked at it
again, and I remembered I had only spent $9.95 for two sandwiches and about
$20.00 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!

NEIMAN-MARCUS COOKIES (Recipe may be halved)
2 cups butter
24 oz. chocolate chips
4 cups flour
2 cups brown sugar
2 tsp. (Bicarb) soda
1 tsp. salt
2 cups sugar
1 8 oz. Hershey Bar (grated). (Cadbury chocolate for Australians and Brits)
5 cups blended oatmeal
4 eggs
2 tsp. baking powder
2 tsp. vanilla
3 cups chopped nuts (your choice)

Measure oatmeal, and blend in a blender to a fine powder. Cream the butter
and both sugars. Add eggs and vanilla, mix together with flour, oatmeal,
salt, baking powder, and Bicarb (soda). Add chocolate chips, Hershey Bar,
and nuts. Roll into balls, and place two inches apart on a cookie sheet.
Bake for 10 minutes at (180) 375 degrees. The above quantities make 112
cookies.

PLEASE KEEP THE RECIPE AND SEND IT TO EVERY PERSON YOU KNOW WHO HAS AN
E-MAIL ADDRESS! This is not a joke-it's a true story.

Nope, I've stated it's an email circulation that I've received. Now if you make those cookies, now that's a different story...
