You Can’t Always Love What You Do

| Richmond, VA, USA |

(While closing up shop alone one night, two gentlemen walked in and the following conversation took place.)

Customer: “So, uh…how much experience do you need to groom dogs?”

Me: “Well, none to start out. They start you as a bather, and then after about three months they send you through an academy to learn how to groom dogs.”

Customer: “You gotta go to school for this?”

Me: “Yes – it’s actually not as easy as it looks.”

Customer: “You make a lot of money?”

Me: “Well, that’s hard to say. We work on commission so…it just depends on how many dogs you can do in a week.”

Customer 2: “You think if you’ve got a cruelty to animals charge, they’ll let you work here?”

Me: “…no.”
