I would like you to reconsider my request to return item #12345
from my order #67890 for a refund.
This item does not work as the manual describes. I was told that
your policy states that widgets are not returnable. However, I
do not consider this item to be a widget.
Both your Web site and
the manufacturer's call it an external USB interface, not a
widget, which is generally a small chipboard installed inside a
I know what your policy states. But even if you disagree with my
notion that your policy does not apply to this item, I believe
that you can and should grant my request.
In my purchasing department, we have policies. But human beings
can waive policies. And if one of my internal customers
justifiably felt that the enforcement of a policy would be
unreasonable, I would waive it.
I trust that the management of ABCD, Inc. shares this
customer-centric view of how exceptions to policies can be
granted by intelligent, caring business leaders.
Please reply with the instructions for arranging my refund.
