As I wrote about before here in Cyrsti’s Condo, yesterday our auto repair service came to hook up their battery charger and start our second car which has been sitting for quite a while now. For any number of reasons, the experience wasn’t a good one.
Maybe it was my fault since I did’t feel the need to dress up for the occasion. I wore my culottes, a tank top and only basic eye makeup with my lightly colored/flavored lip gloss. Somehow I thought my “natural” look would carry the day. To put it mildly, I was wrong.
To start with we got off on the wrong foot when he called me and said he was waiting outside and called me “Mister Hart” on the phone. I told him then this was Ms. Hart and I was coming out to meet him. I thought all would be good because I have never had a problem with this company before.
I don’t know what his problem was when called me sir without ever really looking at me. Maybe he didn’t want to deal with a woman at all. let alone a transgender woman. After he called me sir, I almost said did he want me to go back in the house and get Mr. Hart?
To make a long story short, I ignored his comment and he quickly started the car and went on his way.
By the time the day was over, I had managed to restore my feminine ego without any damage to my fragile gender dysphoria. So all was good. Regardless of the jerk.
