E22. Rewrite the following ineffective adjustment letter saying “No”

Dear Customer:
Our company is unwilling to give you a new toaster or to refund your purchase price. After examining the toaster you sent to us, we found that the fault was not ours, as you insist, but yours. Let me explain. Our toaster is made to take a lot of punishment But being dropped on the floor or poked inside with a knife, as you probably did, exceeds all decent treatment. You must be careful if you expect your appliances to last. Your negligence in this case is so bad that the toaster could not be repaired.

In the future, consider using your appliances according to the guidelines set down in warranty books. That’s why they are written.

Since you are now in the market for a new toaster, let me suggest that you purchase our new heavy—duty model, number 67342, called the Counter—Whiz. I am taking the liberty of sending you some information” about this model. I do hope you at least go to see one at your local appliance center.

Grab BEST Deal Ever.
