Now and again women are forced to combat sexist stereotypes about their car knowledge. A recent study showed that 3 in 4 women do their own research on pricing and repairs before entering an automotive shop to make sure they receive fair prices.
But for those women who work in the ‘male-centric’ business, the challenge is even greater. Dealing with sexist comments, male clients’ distrust and second-guesses on a daily basis can be truly overwhelming.
So this great story comes from the redditor @Unlimitedpatience, who worked as the only licensed mechanic in a car dealership. The author is also a female and she would occasionally get issues with male customers who’d be very suspicious of her skills and abilities. But one customer was particularly unhappy with a woman fixing his car.
“Who is that chick? Is she going to be working on my car? I don’t want her working on my car,” the male told the advisor, who replied that in this case, he’d have to wait for quite a while. Let’s see how this whole story escalated below, and I’m telling you, karma has been served.
