It's shocking that outdated ideas of what men and women can and cannot do in our society have been allowed to persist as long as they have, but there are some things that even society has left behind that some people just refuse to let go of.

Such as a customer who called a dealership and demand she only have a male mechanic work on her vehicle, and who was promptly captured on video.

The video has since been made private on TikTok.

“Females don’t belong in the service department, they belong behind the scenes doing the paperwork,” crowed the voice on the other end of the phone.

The problem with this was that everybody in the office was a female service worker, and the dealership itself was run by a female service director who oversees two dealerships and has over 25 years of experience.

The woman was transferred to sales, but passed back to Autumn, the worker in the first video, when sales was unable to help her, and released another misogynistic request:

“I just hope there are no females on the desk when I get there.”

The staff's jaws drop to the floor.

When she was informed that there were no male service workers at this location, she responded:

“Oh God, that is totally messed up. I need my oil changed but there better be a male mechanic that I can talk to.”

Employees said that the owner of the location was “shocked and outraged” after he saw the video.

"In his five dealerships he has three female managers and eight service writers. Females in our department are treated with equal opportunities. Our service director fired her as a customer.”

Hopefully the customer has found that misogyny and discrimination for simple things like getting your car fixed will severely limit your options.

Meanwhile, more and more women around the world are entering the once exclusively male field of auto mechanics and using the opportunity to help other women.
