Sexist Customer Demands Female Employee Get “One Of The Boys”, They Maliciously Comply

While our society is becoming more inclusive in many different ways, being a woman in a male-dominated field is still no walk in the park. Take the automotive industry, for example, a typically male-driven domain. Time and again, women are still forced to combat harmful stereotypes, deal with sexist comments in the workplace, and second-guess their knowledge daily. It’s overwhelming. It’s exhausting. And it definitely takes a toll on their confidence.

The challenge becomes even greater when the existing prejudices from male (and female!) customers lead to perceiving women workers as technically incompetent. Something that stands at the center of a recent story shared on the ‘Malicious Compliance’ subreddit. As Redditor WoolliesMudcake detailed in his post, it all started when a customer asked his female coworker to “get one of the boys” to help him.
