Maybe they inflate prices and tell customers they will give them discounts anyway, this one just wanted something for it. Auto shops are notorious for game playing with prices and services. Many are pretty shady too, they get away with a lot of crap and can't find good help, thus may hire some rough characters.

Geez, you would think you folks were naïve about how the world (stlll) works. Every freakin' day some regular Joe gets charged with things like sexual assault, lewdness, child porn, setting up a spy camera in a dressing or bath room (happened at the tanning salon I used to go to, nicest guy too), etc.... Women have to be careful in everyday situations beyond just normal bad business practices. This isn't even that bad as far as sexual harassment goes, so it is believable.

Where in any of my posts in this thread, have I said anything about her looks, wealth or class, that you're accusing me of that?

Yes, sexual harassment takes place every day - but again - the circumstances need to be believable, and this scenario isn't believable. It's even less believable with her going to a lawyer. For what??

You have to go through so many 'maybe's' to try and get to how this could be realistic, that it's ridiculous.

But go ahead and jump on 'he's guilty!' because SOME men are dogs, so EVERY man accused of something must also be a dog.

So I can see perhaps she offered and he said no, or that he has had it happen so many times that he asked. Either is possible, as for her appearance there is always somebody who finds a specific type of body appealing. Used to know a guy who was incredibly tall and skinny but the really "big" ladies drove him wild.
This. Sometimes the smaller men like bigger women because to them, it shows they can handle more despite their size. It’s a macho thing. Depending on where the man is from, that might be even more likely.

Plus we haven’t seen this guy. He might not be easy on the eyes either.

I suspect that that was the 'can o' worms' in the fist place.

The story stinks of BS.

Shop owner claims mechanic has no English ability.

Mechanic likely has no ability to negotiate the price.

a scenario just as likely would be the Woman offered to show her breasts if she could get a discount.

When I was a contractor I had more than a few women flirt and make suggestions with me or my brother. My brother was single and more than once accepted.

Does she have a GoFundMe yet? Even if it's true, the lawyer's not going to get any money from the shop, so she might as well have some other suckers pay for her new car or fix this one.
What happened to the good ol' days when you slapped someone for making an indecent proposal?

"He said ‘Look, if you pull up your shirt and show me your breasts, then I will go ahead and knock the price down,’" she said.
Knockers for a knock down?

Regardless, if true, not a very professional thing for any business to do.

She called the cops lmao. They can't do anything unless he touched her which he didn't. And he doesn't speak English, but he knows enough to say, "Hey take your shirt off"? Sounds like she is lying.

Just saying.
The last bill I had at the car repair, I might have said "how high and how much?" Just kidding, naturally. Of course, if I had lifted my shirt, he may still be running down the road.............just your shirt. heck cool off and a discount, too?

Some of these gals and their low cut shirts, don't need to lift them.

All she had to do is say no, and find another garage. Maybe tell a few friends if she felt a need to vent. That this potentially bs story is fodder on televised news and being discussed on a national board is beyond ridiculous.

That it comes from Ferguson further erodes any believability to her story. “T*ts out, don’t shoot!”
