This is what we call QUALITY ASSURANCE..
I couldnt believe my eyes when I saw the cheque. All this while, I thought they were just gonna send me a letter with the outcome of their investigation. But to my surprise, there was a cheque enclosed with the letter. One thing about these international companies, they really do their best in gaining the customer's confidence back whenever there's a complaint and they really see to it that the customers are satisfied before they close their file. They dont, unlike most local companies blame the customers or blame the natural surroundings for whatever the fault was. I really am touched by what Waitrose did and surely would visit their store when I'm in the neighbourhood.
Anyway, here's a little something to laugh about...(the chrono of my complaint)
I would like to lodge a complaint regarding your toffee which I bought from your store a week ago. Its a pack of assorted toffees (with wrappers in green, gold, silver and orange). The toffee in silver tastes aweful. I'm not satisfied with the product and I want a refund or a new pack of toffee. I'm currently residing in Malaysia.
