I have regularly posted on FB (for the sake of my venturers mainly): "Hey Girl Scouts, I have a door ... And a phone! Largest order to the first caller." Plenty of likes, no sells. So I wound up last year buying from a girl who was taking orders at her dad's coffee shop. I congratulated her on being so diligent and prepared with her order form. And said, "I'd place another order with any other scout who had her order form ready and willing to deal."
Her younger sister who was in the seat next to me, form on the table, remained glued to her electronic device unflinching. I wink at her dad who's across the bar, who just shook his head.
This year, the older sister was taking my coffee order and said, "Our Cooke sales have started, but I left may order form at home."
(Dad's shaking his head.)
I say, "So how is that my problem?"
She thinks a couple of seconds, grabs a tablet, and starts writing my order.
At least this year younger sister will strike up conversations ... Even about what her troop would do with the cookie $s ... But still hasn't figured out to ask if I would like to place an order with her.
