Oh for fark's sake.  Some self-important little twat probably doesn't like her kid eating anything that has sugar, salt, refined flour, commercially processed oils, animal fats, or any non-organic, non-locally-sourced artisanal ingredient.  Because, you know.. for the kids.

Whoever it was needs to be outed and publicly shamed.  Besides which, they need a cookie.

Since there is no specific complaint, or thing she is being potentially charged with, they can FOAD.
 
2013-12-20 09:43:10 PM
She should give it to them anyway. Not like she'll be arrested
 
2013-12-20 09:43:40 PM
She's pretty lucky actually.

She's been acting nice in a high-profile way, and she's gotten away with it for 15 years before some shiathead farked it up for her.

Normally you run into a shiathead in your first few days.

Wow, what a nice lady. Baking cookies for years and then when someone complains she takes the high road and doesn't gripe but cooks more cookies for a neighborhood party. That's a class act.

I wonder if she has a nice rack?
 
2013-12-20 09:45:47 PM
lady was totally zen about the shiatfarker who complained too, she's working on a higher cookie plain than the rest of us.
 
2013-12-20 09:46:02 PM
I don't see what the problem is here; I offer the local school kids free candy from my van.
 
2013-12-20 09:46:25 PM
where does the school get the legal authority to ban her from handing a cookie to kids as they get off the bus? same legal approach obama uses to delay and alter implementation of ACA? or that bpoomberg uses to hassle black people? none of these actions has a basis in law, and thus the US government has little basis in law. US government has infinite power, yet lacks legitimacy.

There just ALWAYS has to be some uptight, busybody, my-shiat-don't-stink farking twunt with a huge stick up her ass to ruin anything that could possibly bring someone else a moment of joy.

F*ck the school. If I was her I would keep giving away the cookies. if she wants to take the high road, fine, let's have a crowd of 100 people who are pissed off show up and stand there with cookies.

2013-12-20 09:52:54 PM
There's nothing so nice and benign that some asshat won't throw a hissy fit over it being done.


Pity the school didn't just say to the person "Farking seriously? You get pissed about this? Tell your snowflake to bring us the cookies he/she doesn't want so they don't scar your little precious for life."

You know what we need?  A Million Cookie March.

10,000 people, each baking 100 cookies, and handing them out to neighbors and passers-by.
 
2013-12-20 09:54:21 PM
Some people will complain about anything. Cooking for people is fun. That person sounds crazy.

Probably just moved here from some uppity state, or country.

Might be a religious thing.

Schools always cave in over one complaint.
That's how books get banned all the time.

I actually know this person and as soon as I saw it on the news, I knew that it would cause a stir. She is kind. She has been doing thins for years. She hosts an awesome cookie party every Christmas. She is a fine and good person.

And, when I heard that she was shut down, I told the Mrs.'s that it will pop up on fark.

I suggest that everyone bake a pan of cookies (if you can bake) and give them to a neighbor.

They usually have a kid with an 'allergy'

Fano: Since there is no specific complaint, or thing she is being potentially charged with, they can FOAD.


FTA: For the first time in many years, Tabat won't be at the bus stop Friday. She received a phone call from the school this week telling her someone had complained and that she should cease and desist the dispensing of cookies. She said she never really had a straight answer about the specifics of the complaint.

*) No specific complaint;
*) Caller alleges they were with the school district; this remains unproven;
*) There is precedent that school bus stops are not considered school property[source]. Thus, pending actual complaints to the police, and assuming any real charges can be imagined against her

yeah: for now, they can all EaBoD.
 
2013-12-20 10:01:59 PM
On the basis of this only, without considering anything else:

She sounds like a lovely lady. I hope she's as happy as she sounds, and I hope the good things she does return to her threefold. A cookie might not be the healthiest thing possible, but she's offering honest love to children and that's a beautiful thing.
 
2013-12-20 10:02:00 PM
I don't understand why ONE complain means they have to listen to it?

She's been doing it for 15 years?

Fine!  I want to register a complaint that Rebecca Romijn hasn't visited me in my boudoir yet!

According to this logic, something needs to be done ASAFP!

Her lovely two-story gingerbread house is in danger of being declared an attractive nuisance and torn down if she refuses to stop treating local children to candies and pasties. Contacted for comment she said, "Oh, what a world! what a world! what a world!" It is believed that she meant that it was shameful that a world would treat a kindly old lady like a criminal.

Mrs. ***, a woodcutter's wife and Step-Mother of his two children, Grettal, eight, and Hansel, ten, said "If we wanted our children fattened up like Christmas geese, we'd do it ourselves."

"She gives them Kinder toys. I don't know where she gets them because I hear they are illegal in the United States so children try to eat the plastic eggs and toys inside. I swear she is trying to kill our children with kindness. She used to put out bowls of milk for stray cats--but there are no more stray cats. I think it is not a coincidence."

The old woman is well-regarded by local children and cats but adults think she is something that rhymes with switch.

"All the grown-ups think she is a witch, but none of us kids care because she smothers us with love and makes the world taste good. Her house has peppermint swirl bar stools that spin and play "I love candy".

The police claim the woman may be breaking no laws, but are suspicious because the number of small footprins leading into the house greatly out-number the tracks leading out.

"When we come out we are twice the size," admis Grettal, who at eight weighs 195 pounds."

"Couldn't you just eat hear up! She's as sweet as Honey Boo-Boo," says the old woman.

"We had a boo-boo with honey last week," replied Grettal. "I got honey all over me. Mrs. *** was going to put me in the oven to dry it off but my Mother called me and I had to go home soaking wet and sticky all over with pistachios and pastry dough.

"That's enough, Dearie, why don't you run along and play and not bother the young man. I want him to get some photographs of my shortbread."

probably a nice big one, to cool the cookies on

It seems these days all it takes to stop something is one person complaining.

Sooooo.   If I complain that women are not having sex with me that will force women to have sex with me?????

/bad at logic.

She needs at least at least a dozen cookies (as do I, but that is another story). Preferably, double chocolate chip.
 
2013-12-20 10:10:57 PM
Hate to ruin a thread but she is, in all honesty, a kind and gentle person. She has been doing this for 15 years without complaint or issue. I know this might irritate some fark-ers but she is a member of my church and, without a doubt, she is doing this out of the kindness of her heart.

Her Christmas cookie party is a joyful neighborhood event. I've attended many times.

I love her take on this all- no hate, no upset, no worries. She did a good thing and it served its purpose.

Blessings to her.

Nobody banned her. Somebody claiming to be with the school called her and asked her to stop. She kindly obliged instead of starting a ruckus.
