Overcome

Today, I just finished a client meeting. I couldn’t stop stuttering and couldn’t answer their questions. Towards the end, they just ignored me. I’ve been in the job for a year. I’m pretty much in tears now. FML

I'm curious as to why you stuttered so much? lying, nervousness? Syfy fans also associate stuttering as a form of jet lag from time travel😆

or they have a speech impediment, that sounds like it got worse as the client got more impatient. it would also most likely fall under a protected "disability" when it comes to firing someone, which would make it discriminatory treatment. but I doubt the client would care and be more upset about it taking longer than they wanted to spend there.

It can happen sometimes that during a meeting your client starts to ask question that are not relevant to your presentation or that you were absolutely not expecting, especially if it is a new job.
Is it the first time this has happen? What about the stutter, what is because of stress or something else? Were you alone during your meeting or did you have a manager who could back you up? If yes, it may be worth having a talk with him about that meeting, so you can be ready next time.
A way you could 'save' your meeting is if you have taken notes of their questions, you could answer them in an email? Good luck!
