Storytime With Dreamy

Blockquote open

Y'all are going to love this story of how I quit I was going to be essentially the assistant manager to the manager, when the owner was out. We did some interviews and he asked me some questions, on my expertise, what I'm going to be doing, and my answer to him led me to believe I wasn't going to be doing mechanical work at all. He needed somebody to run the front shop, that's where I excel...

So, day One, first customer, he says, go and take this work order and go outside and diagnose this car. What? Excuse me?... I proceed to diagnose the car...

The car required a simple, inexpensive fix which could've been cheaper if Dreamy had tested the vehicle, but his boss wanted him to overcharge the customer. When he refused, the owner did it himself.

This is exactly what I do. 'Mrs. Jones, I have an answer for your check engine light. Do you want to step on here I'll tell you what I did.

Exposing His New Boss

The TikToker then exposes his fraudulent boss explaining to the customer that during her previous visit to the auto repair shop, the company tampered with her vehicle to ensure she returned and they could sell her a bogus item.

After that, he drove off and left the business because he didn't feel comfortable working with untrustworthy people. Commenters shared their auto repair store stories with him and thanked him for his genuineness.

I have so much respect for this. I do the same in the autoglass business. Big props to you, I’ll bet that felt real good 🥰

From the comments, it appears the world has a "dishonest mechanics" problem, but with more people like Dreamy, things will get back on track soon.
