I’m a mechanic – I can’t dress what I want and clean up when I go shopping… here’s why
A FEMALE mechanic revealed she can’t dress what she wants and doesn’t clean herself when she goes shopping.
TikTok user @thedieselqueen said that people usually questioned her when she was well dressed.
The TikTok user also said she doesn’t clean her hands because “creepy old guys” stare at her from head to toe.
She began the video by saying, “Please tell me I’m not the only one doing this.
“I go to a parts store after work and dress appropriately.
“I have a reason why when I show up at the parts store I make sure I don’t clean my hands and don’t put on nice jeans.”
“And there’s a reason for that. One reason is that the last time I wore a nice dress to the parts store, I had a creepy old guy buying parts for him…”
“I don’t even know what it was that turned around and had the audacity to look me up and down and I thought, can I help you with something.”
“Like bitch, I think I can handle myself.”
Usually the employees at the parts store don’t take her seriously when she’s well dressed.
“Behind the counter sits a woman in her mid-forties who thinks she knows everything because her husband was a mechanic.
“And thinks she knows more than you do, so I don’t wash my hands and wear my dirty jeans.
“I don’t usually get asked when I dress like this.”
Users quickly commented below.
One said: “The guys I work with do this all the time, or the guys ask me if I do my job and treat me like I don’t know anything. I mean seriously.”
Another said: “Same girl, same!! I dread going to the parts store in nice clothes.”
A third pointed out: “Last time I wore a dress to the parts store and was treated differently too.”
Other The mechanic also used TikTok to show what it’s really like to fix cars for a living.
And a TikTok user named Daimee Charisma showed off her skills as she creatively removed a hoop.
