This is just nuts. Apparently these two well-intentioned girls left homemade cookies for all their neighbors - one of whom was terrified to answer the door since they - gasp! - knocked on her door at 10:30pm!

So poor Miss "only MURDERERS AND RAPISTS come calling late at night" SUES them because she was so scared she had to be hospitalized - and they even offered to pay her bills!

Crazy.  Nuts

Teen 'Cookie Monsters' Fined for Good Deed
Friday, February 04, 2005

DURANGO, Colo. — Two teenage girls who surprised their neighbors with homemade cookies late one night were ordered to pay nearly $900 in medical bills for a woman who says she was so startled that she had to go to the hospital.

Judge Doug Walker declined Thursday to award punitive damages, saying he did not believe the girls acted maliciously.

Taylor Ostergaard, 17, and Lindsey Jo Zellitti, 18, baked the chocolate chip and sugar cookies one night last July. They made packages with a half-dozen cookies each and added large red or pink construction-paper hearts that carried the message, "Have a great night" and were signed with their first initials: "Love, The T and L Club." Then they set off to make their deliveries.

Wanita Renea Young, 49, said she was at her rural home south of Durango (search) around 10:30 p.m. when she said saw "shadowy figures" outside the house banging repeatedly on her door. She yelled, "Who's there?" but no one answered, and the figures ran away.

Frightened, she spent the night at her sister's home, then went to the hospital the next morning because she was still shaking and had an upset stomach.

The teenagers' families offered to pay Young's medical bills, but she declined and sued, saying their apologies were not sincere and were not offered in person.



What's the world coming to?!?

There was a thread on this a couple weeks ago - I couldn't find it, but it was as absurd then as it is now . . .

Ridiculous!
