时间:2022-4-1 作者:恒星英语学习网

My husband ordered home delivery of our local newspaper. Because we live in rural area where no street numbers are used, I was concerned that the carrier would have trouble finding us. Sure enough, we missed delivery several days despite frequent calls to the circulation department. Finally I phoned to cancel the subscription. "You’ll have to tell me your exact location," the woman on the line said. "We can’t cancel the subscription unless we know where you live.

50.有去无回
我老公预约了当地报纸的户送。由于大家住在乡下,没街道号码,所以我担忧送报员不容易找到大家。果真这样,一连几天都没报纸送来,尽管大家频繁地往发行部打电话询问。最后我打电话取消订阅协议。“你得告诉大家你的准确地方,”电话中女子说,“除非大家了解你住在哪儿,不然大家不可以取消订阅协议。”
