So you had a whole 15 minute conversation about your pet grooming business and you didn't bother asking her any questions? Especially important ones like, "So, what kind of dog do you own?"

lol I feel sorry for you OP but this is hilarious. why don't you start off by asking " do you have a dog? " next time ;)

I agree with #1, she just didn't want to be rude and interrupt..... maybe! If she did OP probably would think she was being a bitch...

last this happen to me, i got a date. but ydi for not asking the most obvious question. "do you own a dog?"

its obvious that the OP is either extremely attractive or extremely ugly for someone to politely listen to you give a speech for 15 minutes for no damn reason.

If you can't describe your business in 2 minutes, then you are doing it wrong. The first 30 seconds are the make/break point in the sale.

10 bucks says she had a dog but after 15 minutes of u yapping away like an idiot she decided to not hire you because you wouldn't shut up.

tell this potential client to get a dog, and then come to your shop and spend 10x the human haircut cost to get her doggy groomed. but if she were smart she'd just use a scissors to avoid another 15 minute speech.

#88 I work at a grooming salon.Before I did, my dog was washed, dried, brushed, nails done, and fur clipped for only $35. That's really not expensive. Nail trimming is free, and a bath and dry for a large dog is about $20. I can't speak for any other grooming salons, but the ones I've worked at definitely don't charge "10x the cost of a human haircut."

Yea I agree. Plus you can't really call her a "potential client" for a dog grooming business unless she has a dog... or even a dirty raccoon or some kind of animal that you're willing to wash.

I can't really decide what to call this. I'm much more interested as to why you have a 15 minute speech for a dog grooming company. Car salesmen don't even have 15 minute speeches.

how annoying. but people do get annoyed with the whole advertising thing. she didnt wanna be rude, and you probably wouldn't let her get a word in. YDI.

I hate when people have headphones in and I ask them a long question & they don't bother to tell me they couldn't hear me at all until after I ask it
