    Gent. le signore, le ho inviato, nella giornata di ieri, dopo 10 minuti dall'arrivo del suo messaggio che mi ha inviato privatamente, il seguente mio messaggio privato che forse non ha letto e rispetto al quale sto ancora aspettando la sua risposta:
    Buonasera sig. C.,
    com'è possibile? Mi può inviare cortesemente qualche immagine per poter capire meglio cosa può essere successo? La scatola cartonata presentava danni esterni visibili? Contatterò l'UPS.
    Saluti cordiali,
