how many of you are actually mechanics?
The guys I worked were really excellent to me. Treated me like their sister and were happy to have me around. Taught me new things as I was learning, were always happy to lend me an arm when some bolt was just too tight for me to loosen. I didn't get any harassment. Some of them would even sometimes apologize if they ever caught themselves acting like brutes around me. And I was good to them, too. I did my job, didn't play games, had a sense of humor. It was a great situation, because they were good guys. I've worked in other places, though, where some of the guys have been out of line and harder to handle.I do love people's reactions to female mechanics. Sometimes it feels like such a boy's club.
