Walk from Shell

In Girl in a Mechanics World by Steves Auto Repair and Tire

A few weeks ago walking back from the shell gas station I walked into Aamco not knowing that it was closed off in the middle and Steve’s was on the other side. I looked around and didn’t recognize anyone until one of the guys came up to me and told me that Steve’s was on the other side of the shop. I could feel my face get hot and sweaty.

All I could really do was giggle and say “ha, okay thanks!” I turned around and started to speed walk. I felt such a relief once I hit the corner because I could feel them just staring as I walked away, Shouldn’t be such a big deal since apparently I’m not the only one that has made that mistake. Since I worked here we had a couple of customers leave their keys in Aamcos night box and call us the next day asking for a status. But even that can’t stop me from walking with my head held high walking pass them. No matter what I’m going to be that girl from Steve’s auto repair that walked into the wrong shop! It’s not like they can confuse me for someone else because I am the only girl in this small little plaza.
