Oh, experiences. Okay, then I've never been to an
interview that lasted only 15 minutes. I was at one
job interview where a company advertised "Web
Programmer" as "Documentation Manager," but even that
one lasted 30 minutes before I brought it to an end.

15 minutes = waaaay toooo shooorrt IMHO.

It was just that we needed more info and I (and
probably others) were surprised you shut down the
relevant inquiries as you did. Me? Ida not brought
this up if I were unable or unwilling to say what
caused the termination of the interview.
