Dear valued customer,

Our policy has been to provide customers with ground coffee when their coffee grinders undergo malfunctions. However, as more and more customers fail to remit their payment on time these days, we have determined to enforce a stricter policy in such cases.

Our new policy is effective as of September 3, 2007, and in details are as follows:

1. If a customer delays his or her payment for over 20 days and the machine does not work properly, we will stop supplying ground coffee. Instead, we will fix the unit, but the customer will be responsible for the expenses. Any payment related to these repairs will be reimbursed to the customer after he or she has remitted the unpaid balance in full.

2. A surcharge on accounts suspended for more than 60 days will be assessed.

Admittedly, this might sound a little extreme and may come as a surprise; nevertheless, we see no other alternative. As you know, we have always been committed to providing quality products and reliable service in order to meet your requirements. Without our patrons' cooperation and support, we are unable to continue to provide all of this.

In case of any inquiries concerning our new policy, please do not hesitate to contact us.

To: All employees
Re: Painting

This weekend, the office will be closed for painting, and no employees will be allowed in the building. Although official company policy discourages employees from working overtime hours from home, an exception will be made in this case. However, you should be sure to get prior approval for your overtime from your manager. Also, log on to the system from home when you start work, and remember to log off when you are finished. The painters will be here on Saturday morning, and they have requested that all office furniture be moved into the hallway. So, you are asked to leave work at 5:00 on Friday to give the maintenance staff a chance to rearrange the furniture. Your cooperation is appreciated.

Thank you.

MEMORANDUM

TO: All Staff
FROM: Phillip Christensen

As most of you are already aware, we will soon be undergoing a complete update of our office hardware. Much of our equipment is quite old and due for replacement this year. -[1]-. We will be upgrading our server as well as providing new PCs to everyone who has not received one in the past five years. In addition, new printer terminals will be stationed throughout the office. Many of you have also asked for new monitors. -[2]-. We regret that we were unable to authorize all requests as funding is limited.

If you are receiving a new computer, please make sure to download all the files you will need onto an external hard drive by Friday. This is important as the old equipment will be replaced over the weekend and will be inaccessible to staff from Monday.

-[3]-. The technicians hope to complete all the work on Saturday and Sunday. Should there be a delay, you will be notified. If you have any questions, call me at extension 115 or send me an e-mail at philchristensen@davenport.com.

-[4]-. Thank you for your cooperation.

34. What is the purpose of the memo?
35. What is NOT indicated in the memo?
36. According to Mr. Christensen, what are employees responsible for?

Helen Gatineau [3:35] I'm sure you've all heard that we're going to be merging with Fresh Food Wholesalers at the end of next month. We will have a meeting to discuss transition plans next week. But in the meantime, I will try to answer questions you may have about the merger.
Leo Kinghorn [3:36] Everyone in the purchasing department is wondering how we will be affected by the change. Are there any firm details available?
Mimi Hanway [3:38] It's my understanding that administrative functions will be carried out in only one building for efficiency's sake. As a result, administrative personnel, including me, will be moving to the Fresh Food Wholesalers' building in the coming weeks.
Helen Gatineau [3:39] That's right. But, we are going to maintain separate warehouse facilities at their present locations.
Jude Mason [3:41] Any idea how that will change my routine?
Helen Gatineau [3:42] You'll stop at both facilities before taking your deliveries to the retail store, Jude. We'll hire additional warehouse workers to speed things up so you have time to visit both spots. They will help you load items.
Leo Kinghorn [3:45] You know, the workers at Fresh Food Wholesalers will probably need to take a health and safety seminar before they can handle meat. I believe that Fresh Food Wholesalers hasn't dealt in meat products yet.
Helen Gatineau [3:47] That makes sense. I'll arrange for instructors to visit as soon as possible.

38. What is the online chat mainly about?
39. What are some personnel required to do?
40. In what department does Mr. Mason most likely work?

Hi, Richard.

The time for the bimonthly inventory has come once again. Before you complete the inventory and send the order form to SBF Supplies, our contracted supplier for office products, I want you to add 50 binders with our company logo on them to the order. I will distribute them to our employees so they can better organize their resources. In addition, an employee at SBF Supplies contacted me this morning and said that we should finalize our order before Saturday as the company is temporarily suspending its services for about 3 weeks. Call (201) 581-9020 to talk to the employee for details. Thanks and keep up the good work.

To: Max Sullivan
From: Martha Reynolds
Subj: Conference

Max,

I have been working on the arrangements for our upcoming conference. I've looked into the City Convention Center, and I think it is the most convenient location. It is close to public transportation and hotels. The accommodations are also excellent. The rooms are large, and we can reserve up to ten meeting rooms. However, the price is almost 50% more than we agreed we could spend. The other choice is the Mayfield Hotel. Many associations hold their conventions there. It is a nice place, and the price is reasonable. However, it is not close to the subway. Also, it is much smaller than the Convention Center. I think we could only get three meeting rooms. Would that be enough? Please get in touch with me today to let me know what you think. I need to reserve a place soon.

To: Martha Reynolds
From: Max Sullivan
Subj: Re: Conference

Martha,

In regard to selecting a location for the conference, I think the Convention Center is better than the Mayfield Hotel. The hotel is much too small. Remember, we plan to hold at least five sessions at a time. We couldn't do that at the hotel. We expect more people to take part in the convention this year, so it is important to have a space that can accommodate everyone. About the price, I think we can rearrange the budget a bit in order to be able to pay for it. So go ahead and reserve the space at the Convention Center.

We received the defective toaster which you returned to us asking for a full refund under the terms of the one-year warranty. Unfortunately, the warranty on the toaster expired a month ago. The terms of the warranty do not cover your product once it has expired. Consequently, we will not be able to send you a refund. However, we will be able to send you a refurbished toaster of the same model in exchange for the defective one if you desire. Please let us know if such an arrangement would be satisfactory to you.

Please don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions. We appreciate your business.

After considering the matter, I have decided to accept the refurbished toaster. Your company has a good reputation, and I frequently use your products. In fact, this is the first time I have ever had a problem with anything I have purchased from you. Therefore, I am sure that the refurbished toaster will work as well as a brand new one. However, I would like to be assured that the refurbished toaster will be protected by a warranty, just as a new toaster would be. If this is the case, then please send me the toaster as soon as possible. Thank you.

Allen Hanks
Al's Autos
56 Wheelbarrow Rd.
Tampa, FL

Dear Mr. Hanks,

Last month I purchased a used Capri 1025 from you. At first, the car seemed like a great deal, especially with the $300 dollar discount I received. I bought the car because I have to travel a long distance to work each day, and with gas being so expensive these days I needed a car that was more fuel-efficient. You were right; the smaller car did save me about $30 in gas each week. Unfortunately, after about two weeks, the car started making a clanking noise if I went faster than 50 kilometers per hour. I took it to my mechanic, Smooth Rides, and had them evaluate the problem. They determined that the entire engine would need to be replaced, due to a crack down the middle of it. In total, the labor and engine parts will cost about $1,000. I assume that since I only purchased the car a month ago, I am well within the 2-year limit to the guarantee and Al's Autos will cover the cost of the repairs. Please contact me at 852-321-6547 if you have any questions.

Sincerely,

Floyd Baker
