I’m a female mechanic – people always ask how anyone gets work done in my garage when they see me bent over working

MOST people imagine burly, middle-aged men working on their cars when they think about employing a mechanic.

But one female technician has shown how her career in a predominantly male-dominated industry introduces a distinct set of baggage.

Kirsten Vaughn’s (@vermilionvixenmain) TikTok clip shows her jokingly looking for a work tool on the ground in a seductive pose.

While bent over, Vaughn said: “Oh, sorry, I’m just looking for the 10mm — I think it’s under here.”

After searching for a moment, this female auto mechanic quipped: “I think I hurt myself, help, please,” to make herself appear dependent despite her professional capability.

One male TikTok user wrote: “How does any work get done in that shop? Oh, we know you work, but the boys??”

Another TikTok account commented: “Stop, I’m gonna fall in love.”

This isn’t the first time that Vaughn has used humor to prove a point as a female in a male-heavy career.

In one video, she said: “When guys tell me this is a man’s field and I belong in the kitchen.

“I’ve met men who couldn’t do an oil change. It’s about capability, not gender.”

In another one of Vaugn’s videos, someone said: “They must really expect you to do nothing if they let you set up a camera for every movement and wear that. Little shop bunny.”

The influencer was quick to respond with a follow-up video.

She said: “Yep, you got me! I’m just a shop bunny. I’m just here to look cute. I don’t ever actually do any work.”

Next, Vaughn showed extended compilation footage of herself working on the cars and engines, using heavy machinery.
