Complaint Letters
? Not every service or product meets our satisfaction. When we are dissatisfied, we should voice our dissatisfaction. In this way, we can have the seller or provider replace the defective goods, re supply the service, or refund our money. No seller likes to do any of these, but our carefully written letter of complaint may motivate him to do so. When we write a letter of complaint, we will do well to keep these tips in mind: First, be courteous though firm. We will not win the seller's cooperation by anger. Secondly, be reasonable. Show logically and factually that the responsibility lies with the seller. ? The seller should be impressed with our fairness and quiet grasp of the facts in the matter. Thirdly, be specific about what is wrong. Be equally specific about what we want done about it. Lastly, tell how we have been hurt or inconvenienced by the problem. This strengthens our argument for compensation. If we can follow these tips in writing our letters of complaint, chances are that we may succeed in what we intend.

?

写投诉信最关键的一环是如何掌握语气语调。在一时冲 动下,你也许想痛骂一顿:"Your product is nothing but a piece of garbage"(你们的产品简直就是垃圾货)或 "Your shop assistant is a jerk"(你的商店服务员是个大笨蛋)。 但是这种语气语调无济于事,反而使你显得既没风度又没 道理。投诉信的措词一定要稳妥,做到有理有节,有根有 据。一定要把事情原委讲清楚,分析对方的过错在哪里, 弥补的途径是什么,并晓以利害。要知道,一个有职业道 德,懂得质量管理,希望不断上进的个人和团体是会认真 对待处理顾客抱怨的。破口大骂也许能帮着消气,但不会 引起人们的重视。
