$250 Cookie Recipe

"My daughter and I had just finished a salad at the Nieman Marcus Cafe and decided to have a small dessert. Because our family members are such cookie monsters, we decided to try the Nieman Marcus Cookie. It was so excellent that I asked the waitress if she would give me the recipe and she said, with a small frown, "I'm afraid not." "Well," I said, "would you let me buy the recipe?" With a cute little smile she said, "Yes." I asked how much and she responded "two fifty." I said with approval, "just add it to my tab."

Thirty days later, I received my Visa bill from Nieman Marcus and it was $285.00. I looked again and I remembered I had spent only $9.95 for two salads and about $20.00 for a scarf. What in the world was so expensive? I looked again at the bottom of the ticket and it said: cookie recipe, $250.00. Boy, was I ever upset. I called them up and told the accounting department the waitress said it was two fifty, and I did not realize she meant $250 for a cookie recipe. I asked them to take back the recipe and reduce my bill and they said, "Sorry, but all the recipes were this expensive so that not just everyone could duplicate any of our bakery recipes...the bill would stand..." I waited, thinking of how I could get even or even try and get any of my money back. I said, "Okay, you folks got my $250.00 and now I'm going to see to it that every cookie lover will have a $250.00 cookie!" She said, "I wish you wouldn't do this." I said that I was sorry but this is the only way I feel I could get even. So, here it is and please pass it to someone else or run a few copies. I paid for it, now you can have it for free."
