A Father & His Son’s Most Unusual Request To Google
A Father & His Son’s Most Unusual Request To Google – So what happened next?
Just go through the post to explore what they wrote and what they got in return. This is very interesting.
Timm and Michael, a father and son respectively from Germany, were at summer camp. Being there, a day they needed information about the word ‘Deichhörnchen’. But as they were at a summer camp, they had no working internet connection. So they come up with a very unusual and rare idea. They decided to take a risk and sent a request to Google in an unusual way— which was nothing but writing and forwarding by regular, old-fashioned mail. They wrote a letter and sent it to the Google office in Hamburg (Germany). You will be amazed to know that in less than seven days, they received a handwritten answer from Google.
Unfortunately, the sender misspelled the word by one letter, and their request turned from being about a squirrel (‘Eichhörnchen’) into a non-existent type of embankment squirrel (‘Deichhörnchen’) that supposedly lives in dikes. Nevertheless, the answer they got really made them smile as well as their day.
The Letter Says..
Unfortunately, we have no internet connection here. We’re in a summer camp now but wanted to obtain some information. We’d like to know everything about Deichhörnchen like— what kind of creature it is, where it lives and what it eats.
As we know that your business exists because of advertising, please, include it in the letter.
Thank you in advance!
The Letter Says..
Dear Timm and Michael,
Thank you for your inquiry!
Did you mean: ‘Eichhörnchen’ (squirrel)?

If you have any questions, please, ask Google — preferably online.
We hope you enjoy your time at the summer camp!
