People who work night shifts are constantly fighting against an “internal clock” in their bodies. Quite often the clock tells them to sleep when their job requires them to remain fully awake. It’s no wonder that more accidents happen during night shifts than at any other time. Light therapy (照光疗法) with a bright light box can help night-shift workers adjust their internal clock. However, many doctors recommend careful planning to help improve sleep patterns. For example, night-shift workers often find it difficult to sleep in the morning when they get off work because the body’s natural rhythm (节律) fights back, no matter how tired they are. Some experts recommend that night-shift workers schedule two smaller sleep periods—one in the morning after work, and another longer one in the afternoon, closer to when the body would naturally need to sleep. It’s also helpful to ask friends and family to cooperate by avoiding visits and phone calls during the times when you are sleeping.

I know that your company has a reputation (声誉) for quality products and fairness toward its customers. Therefore, I’m writing to ask for a replacement for a lawn mower (割草机).
I bought the mower about half a year ago at the Watchung Discount Center, Watchung, Nebraska. I’m enclosing a copy of a receipt for the mower.
A month after I bought the lawn mower, the engine failed, and it was repaired under warranty (保修期). So far, I have had the engine repaired four times.
Now the engine has broken down again.
I have already spent more than $300 on repairs, and I am beginning to seriously question the quality of your mower.
I am questioning that you replace this mower with a new one.
I hope that you will live up to your reputation of the good customer service that has made your business successful.
