Found this from the internet today.... $250 for a recipe??? OMFG..

| SUBJECT: EXPENSIVE LESSON - $250.00 COOKIE RECIPE
| My daughter and I had finished a salad at the Neiman-Marcus Cafe in Dallas
| and decided to have a small desert. Because our family members are such
| "Cookie Monsters", we decided to try the Neiman-Marcus Cookie. It was so
| good that I asked if they would give me the recipe. She said with a frown,
| "I'm afraid not", "Well", I said, "Would you let me buy the recipe?" With a
| cute smile, she agreed. 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 statement from Neiman-Marcus and it was
| $285.00. I looked again and remembered I had only spent $9.95 for two salads
| and about $20 for a scarf. As I glanced at the bottom of the statement said
| "Cookie Recipe-$250". Boy was I upset! I called Neiman's accounting office
| and told them the waitress said it was "two fifty" and did not realize she
| meant $250 for a cookie recipe. I asked them to take back the recipe and
| reduce my bill, but they said they were sorry, but all recipes were this
| expensive so not just anyone could duplicate the bakery recipes...the bill
| would stand.
| I thought of how I could try to get even or try to get my 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
| will have the $250 recipe from Neiman-Marcus for nothing. She replied "I
| wish you wouldn't do this." I said, "I'm sorry, but this is the only way I
| feel I can get even and I will." So here it is, please pass it on to someone
| else or run a few copies...I paid for it, so now you can have it for free!!!
