The reading of a young Girl Scout’s email to one of her father’s “very rich” friends captured the attention of Mike Rowe and millions of viewers on Facebook.
Charlotte’s father works on a podcast with Rowe, who is best known from Discovery Channel’s “Dirty Jobs.”
Charlotte’s dad had mentioned that one of his friends from high school was “very rich.”
Less than an hour later, he noticed an email in his sent folder. It wasn’t one he had sent, but one his daughter wrote to the rich friend.
Upon discovering the email and seeing its hilarious contents, he shared it with Rowe, who read it in a video on his Facebook page.
Girl Scouts can be quite the salespeople during cookie season, but none quite as honest, and effective, as Charlotte.
“I’ve been informed that you’d like to purchase several cookie boxes for our troops serving overseas,” the email begins. “Most importantly, I would like to tell you about the cookies themselves, for some of the descriptions I’m afraid use false advertising.”
Charlotte then gives a very honest description and rating of each of the various flavors of Girl Scout Cookies.
Her least favorite cookie is the Toffee-tastic which she describes as a “bleak, flavorless, gluten-free wasteland.”
Charlotte shows some other cookies love, describing Savannah Smiles as having “divine taste” and her personal favorite, Samoas, as having “amazing flavor.”
Charlotte’s straightforward approach must have worked. Her goal was to sell 300 boxes of cookies this year, a goal at the time had already been reached, according to her Charlotte’s Cookie World website.
