A customer at a car dealership is
facing backlash online after sharing his
disagreement with a female employee.
The customer, writing under the
username Away-Republic, shared his experience
in Reddit’s AITA (Am I The A*****) forum.
“I was looking to buy a car from a dealership
and the salesperson that happened to see me
first was a very attractive woman that also
happened to dress a bit provocatively”.
The user went on to explain that
extremely attractive people usually
make him “uncomfortable” .
Away-Republic wrote that he ultimately told her
that he wanted to speak with a different salesperson.
“I didn’t really want to tell her the real
reason why I was asking for the change".
However, the saleswoman pushed for an
answer, noting that she was working on
commission and wanted to know how
she could improve as a professional.
“I told her as politely as I could: she was too
attractive, dressed too revealingly and that made
me uncomfortable with her,” he wrote.
Ultimately, the saleswoman accepted
the request with a “hardened” face, leaving
the man with one final thought.
"She told me that I don’t have to apologize, cause
this isn’t the first and won’t be the last time she’s
losing a commission due to sexism".
Reddit users seemed to overwhelmingly
support the female employee, calling the
man’s behavior “shameful”.
“Yes, that’s sexism. You are uncomfortable
with her because she is a woman and now she loses
out at her job. Learn to control yourself”
