Being a Grouch...


I like good service, but was dissapointed not to receive it recently. This is the complaint letter that C urged me NOT to send.. and I thought it was so good...


Dear ...........,


Looking for the perfect Father's Day gift on June 9th, I was thrilled to see that ........... had From the Earth to the Moon in stock believing that by paying ........... $10 over the Amazon.com price and the additional expedited shipping I would be able to receive it for Father's Day. Sadly, I still have not received it. If you cannot complete delivery by Tuesday, June 24th 5PM local time, I will expect the order to be cancelled and a full refund issued. After all people, the actual trip to the moon & back only took 6 days.
Best Wishes,Tiffany

I took C's advice and sent a nicer letter. :( I have to have a clear conscience to write Good Manners Thursday articles.. After all.

I think I would be tempted to send the original letter too.
