Scone bandits eat Christmas present
When Rhonda Pillote’s brother-in-law received a call that his Christmas gift was incorrectly delivered across the street, he did not rush over.
Two days later he arrived to pick up the package and it was gone.
Pillote, an Ann Arbor resident, sent him a box of scones, honey and coffee from Zingerman’s.
She says he told her the neighbor ushered him into the kitchen, and announced “Funny thing…we ate it!”
The neighbors allegedly said they opened the box because it was labeled perishable, and they believed there may have been fish inside.
Pillote called Zingerman’s to share the story. Zingerman’s replaced the gift, with a note clarifying that the scones and coffee gift box does not contain fish.
