Dear Sir/Madam.

I am writing to complain about an article in last Monday's newspaper, “Schools fail low-income children.” As the head teacher of one of the largest junior high schools in the city. I feel strongly that the article does not describe our school.

My school has children from many different economic backgrounds, but a large percentage some from lower-income families. Nevertheless, our tests show that the children do well and benefit from the excellent work our teachers do. Last year our school moved from 24m to 5th place according to the official assessment by the state government. This is clearly not the ‘Tailure" that the article suggests.

I would be strongly recommend that more careful research should be conducted in the future so that your newspaper will more realistically describe the true situation in our schools.

Yours sincerely,

Joan Gonzales

Dear Big Meal’s representative

I’m writing to inform you that I had a negative bad experience at your location in Columbus, New Jersey on August 4. My receipt number is 512, and the person who handled my order was Alex.

First of all, I recognize that you, as the reader of this letter, are not responsible for my bad experience, but I am still upset about the situation.

I went to the drive through and ordered seven meals with no pickles. When I received my order, I checked that all of the sandwiches and fries were in the bag paid and drove away. When 1 got home, 1 realized my number seven had pickles on it. I’m allergic to pickles, and I didn’t want to waste the sandwich, so I drove back to the drive through to explain the situation and get it fixed.

I feel very disappointed with this interaction, as I usually enjoy my experiences at your restaurant. To fix this situation, I would like a coupon for a free meal of my choice. I think an apology from Alex is also appropriate.

Please contact me at 555.555.5555 or email me back at jkorkell@gmail.com. I would like this situation to be resolved so I can continue to be a loyal Big Meal’s patron.

Best,

Jim Korkell
