What's Wrong With This Picture?

Two teenage Colorado girls decided not to go to a party, because they worried there might be cussin' and drinkin' involved. Instead, they decided to bake some cookies. Well, by the time the cookies are ready, it's 10pm, and what what the hell are they going to do with all these cookies? Why, they'll give them to their neighbours! But it would be wrong to claim credit for such a (sickeningly sweet) good action, so they'll do it anonymously... They leave cookies in front of some neighbours' doors, with some paper hearts, and ring the doorbells, before running away. Admittedly not very smart, but alright. Everything's fine until they do this to the oldmaid bitch of the neighbourhood, 49 if a day, who whigs out when she sees the cookies. Who can have left her cookies at this time of night? She gets an anxiety attack, and asks to be taken to a hospital the next day, thinking she's had a heart attack. She's perfectly fine, and when she's sent back home, decides to sue the girls. Well, she won. The judge fined the two girls 900 dollars, but gave no damages to the old maid. There's something VERY wrong about this story. Granted, it was late to be ringing doorbells, but $900? This is a first offense, man. How about a scolding, and some hours of community service, like caring for some elderly people? Unless the judge doesn't care for such oversweet goodytwoshoes that don't go to parties because of the cussin' and the drinkin', decide to bake cookies and share them with their fellow human beings? I mean, how were these kids raised? If they'd gone to the party and got wasted, or decided to surf the 'net for pr0n, or just pigged out on the cookies by themselves, none of this would have happened! Location : Beauvais, France. Dismayed, reading : the original story.

I'm just embarrassed that this whole thing happened in Colorado. Lori was saying that the old bitch is probably not very liked in that neighborhood now. She will probably have to move.

I saw that too, and it's a cryin' shame. Where on earth are two teenagers gonna come up with $900? I mean I'm sure they have part time jobs and stuff, but that's just insane. And how paranoid do you have to be to think that someone is trying to poison you? The whole thing is just ridiculous and I feel so bad for those girls who just wanted to do a nice thing.

I think that old woman is going to start getting a lot worse things than freshly baked cookies on her doorstep now.
