12 green lane,
Dear mr williams,
I am writing to you to complain about my recent visit to your supermarket, costsavers, on thursday 12th january, 2017. After a recent holiday in europe (where I visited portugal, spain and italy), I came to your store to purchase some ingredients to make a mediterranean meal like the one I had eaten near the colosseum.
Whilst on your fruit and vegetable aisle, I accidentally tripped over a red onion and two of your shop assistants, whose name badges read daniel and julie, proceeded to laugh at me hysterically. They never offered me any help or assistance. I was appalled.
I raced outside, got into my car and went straight home empty-handed. I had to phone my local branch of palace pizzas to order a takeaway meal. I will not be coming back in your shop until I get a full apology. If I don’t receive a letter by wednesday 1st march, I am even considering writing to whoopsville council or the prime minister to express my disgust.
Yours sincerely, mr whoops.
