A Letter of Complaint(抱怨信)


     A Letter of Complaint
                                                             20th October
 Dear Mr. Jackson,
      You may remember that we have discussed the noise that your children make while they are practicing their musical instruments. You agreed to make sure that they would stop practicing in
the evenings.
      You can imagine my surprise, then, when I realized that things had not changed and the situation was continuing as before. I find it difficult to stay in the house and I invent any excuse to go out for the evening to be away from the terrible noise. Much as I like music, I have had enough, and to be
honest, I am not prepared to put up with the situation anymore.
      I think it is high time you realized your responsibilities as a member of the community, and I must warn you that unless you do something about the situation, I will be forced to take legal action. I have sent a copy of this letter to my lawyer.
                                                        Yours sincerely,
                                                               Peter Hugo

    那么你就可以想象当我意识到事情并没有改变,情况依然照旧时是多么惊讶了。我发现晚上很难呆在屋里,于是找各种借口出去,以摆脱那可怕的噪音。  虽然我很喜欢音乐,但我已经受够了。坦率地说,我不打算对这种情况继续容忍下去。
