Mechanic deserves an award for staying so calm while the SLK owner loses her mind for no apparent reason.
It is difficult to write an article when you are completely speechless. This is one of those times. The video you see here comes from the TikTok account of peterbuilthooker. We don’t know what this man is paid but whatever it is, it is not enough. There is a Mercedes-Benz SLK in the garage that apparently needs a new wheel and/or tire. Peterbuilthooker is there to help. The SLK owner is a woman, that we can just refer to as Karen. We don’t know what got Karen so upset but from the time the video starts until it ends, she never stops hurling nasty insults at the mechanic. Warning, this video is not safe for work.
We don’t know what got Karen so fired up in the first place. The mechanic seems to be calmly trying to do his job. It appears that perhaps there was some sort of an issue with the wheel lock key that Karen provided the mechanic. It does not seem to be the right key for the lugs on that wheel. The mechanic tries to explain that, but she will hear none of it.
Quite honestly it almost doesn’t matter what the argument started over. Even if the mechanic walked in the garage and spit on the hood of the car, he would not deserve to be treated the way he is by this woman. She is completely unhinged. She makes all Mercedes owners look bad by acting this way. She threatens to call the police, and she never stops hurling insults at this poor guy. For over SEVEN MINUTES she just won’t shut up or calm down. The mechanic is doing nothing to escalate the situation.
Mechanic of the Year
The man in this video takes all of this abuse in stride. Imagine yourself in this situation. Would you be able to remain as calm and polite through this whole ordeal? It would not have been surprising at all if he just threw his impact wrench right through her windshield. He tried to explain the issue, and never raised his voice. Was he acting differently before the video started? That is always possible, but it does not seem likely based on his behavior.
We all know. Well, maybe Karen doesn’t know. But most of us know that there is a labor shortage right now. It is tough to get people to work in any service-related industry. As a result, people are stretched thin. Wait times are long, and we all need to have a little more patience. For the most part everyone is doing their best. But this SLK owner is a perfect example of how not to treat people. Nobody is happy when their car has an issue. We get that. But this man is here to help and just getting blasted over it. Kudos to you sir. And shame on you ma’am for acting this way. You do not deserve to drive a Mercedes-Benz.
