Groups 201-204 Homework: What happened at that restaurant?!

Here is the situation:
You went out for dinner with your friends to celebrate your birthday. You were very disappointed with the service you received. Write a letter of complaint to the restaurant manager explaining why you were dissatisfied and asking for an explanation and an apology.
Write 100-140 words. Remember the rules of letter-writing. Please be ready to give me your letter at your class next week. Be prepared--I might ask you to read your letter!



Suggestions:
  • If you don't know the restaurant manager by name, you can use this format:
Radio Street Restaurant
Attention: Manager
  • First paragraph: Introduce yourself, explain why you are writing.
  • Second paragraph: Briefly tell what happened at the restaurant.
  • Third paragraph: Ask for the action(s) you want from the manager.
