I told my friends to wait in the car and rushed into the store. The girl I spoke to at the counter was extremely helpful but unfortunately they had no others in my size, so I left with the original gift after putting it and the receipt for it back in my bag. I dashed out of the store to rejoin my friends, who were still waiting in the car. “Excuse me. Stop right there! You’d better come with us!” Reading 1_4 A Shopper’s Nightmare

They refused to tell me who they were or what I was accused of. I demanded to know what I had done wrong, but this was met with silence as they marched me through a side entrance to the store and to a small room upstairs. I had always assumed that a receipt would be enough to prove a shopper’s innocence in such a case.

The Manager, The Falstaff Restaurant, Oxford Avenue, Stratford-upon-Avon, Warwickshire.

120 Unit 3 Customer’s Nightmare & Complaint Farewell to Rude Manners On booking a table for four by telephone on Wednesday we were assured that there would be ample room for us despite the fact that you had only been open for a few days and were already heavily booked. We appreciate that there must be great demand for restaurant meals at this time of the year in such a popular and historic area but we were not expecting such an ill-mannered reception on the part of your head waiter. Our American guests are currently touring the “Shakespeare country” and were looking forward to a traditional English dinner in such a charming, picturesque setting. Our hopes for an enjoyable evening out were immediately ruined when your head waiter informed us that he had received no booking in our name and, consequently, no table was reserved for our party. My wife and I protested at this and asked to speak to the Manager, who, we were told, was unavailable. Reading2_4 Reading II Text

121 Unit 3 Customer’s Nightmare & Complaint Farewell to Rude Manners Your staff then offered us a table which we all had to share with another couple and no effort was made to smooth over the unpleasantness we had experienced.
