A masterpiece of assignment by , written on 2020-03-12

My order went 3 hours late and I also went mad. Then the customer support team calmed me down and offered me a flat discount of 50%. However, I did get my order and chilled out as the work was exactly what I requested. Next time I would place my order a bit sooner to save any trouble.

I ordered the literature review for my research project in rush delivery. I was not expecting that they would complete my order 2 hours before my chosen time. The quality is also nice. Thank you for help.
