Thought I'd share with you a rather unusual, but charming, explanation as to why one of the many deliveries of books I receive is running a bit late. There's certainly a few odd balls in the book trade and I can feel myself turning into one of them by the day!
Firstly, thanks again for your order for A Fight For A Life. The Story Of A West African Convert And
His Friends by Frances M. Hensley which is already on the way to you, this
being merely a note to confirm when you should be in receipt. I would
appreciate your feedback and confirmation that it reaches you in good order.
You should receive this by Monday,
9th of December 2013 at the latest and I
will check in with you after that date to ensure it has been received and meets
May I also apologise, profusely, for the delay in shipping
your book. I am a one man operation and sometimes it is simply not possible for
me to get to my, rather remote, storage unit quickly enough. Not my usual
service I can assure you, but until I have minions, or the Jack Russells master
the art of driving or serving customers properly this does, occasionally,
happen. If I can be of any further assistance don't hesitate to contact me. Any
questions can be directed to me by replying to this email. I take customer
service seriously and if you are unhappy in any way, please, tell me - I am
always trying to improve my service to keep customers coming back... and my
Jack Russells in the lavish lifestyle to which they have become accustomed.
