No Good Deed.........

February 05, 2005

Be very, very careful about leaving a plate of home-baked cookies on a neighbor's doorstep. That's what two good-hearted teens learned, when their Durango, Colorado neighbor got scared and nervous by the mysterious nighttime delivery, and went to the hospital the next day for minor pains. She sued the two girls for compensatory and punitive damages, and they ended up owing her more than $900 in medical bills. (There's a judge who needs to be replaced, BTW).

Now, A Denver radio station has raised more than $1,900 on the girls' behalf. The excess will go to charity.

Sheesh. Here are a couple of teens actually doing something nice for their neighbors, and this is what they get. The neighbor says she's getting so much flack she'll have to leave town. Good. And wherever she lands, she should make sure to put a nice big sign on the landing that says: "Deliver Cookies At Your Own Risk." Or maybe, "Beware Of Human."

That woman should be ashamed of herself! More than that, the Judge will hopefully have to move along with her to a new town. (hopefully not Enumclaw WA)

This is an example of why people are less interested in getting to know their neighbors.
