The term “mechanic” tends to be synonymous with “greasemonkey”. Some see the profession of auto repair as base, the mechanic as contemptible. The images that are conjured when the deviant walks from the service bay into the formans shop, breathing heavily can be startling to an unready client. What is suggested is that his profession breeds a cultural degeneration through what could be deemed an ‘unkempt’ intellect. See how the mechanic grunts to the foreman and bandys with others in his ‘rough’ company; is this professionalism? Furthermore, the physical unhealth from chemical exposure speaks of their neglect; the oil that paints their hands and face at any given time is unnerving for some consumers (lest it find its way onto them).
However, few mechanics pick their job to follow the etiquette of what is socially acceptable and should they? The image of this laborer and how they are perceived by their speech and aesthetic, should be of little concern. The certificates they have in varying anatomy of the vehicle achieved through the A.S.E. or institution, this is what should be scrutinized. There is no validity in mistrusting immediate perception. Mistrust is spawned from an irrationality of concept; I appeal to authority. If Repairing your vehicle is the desired option, emphasis should be on earned accreditation rather than what impulse suggests.
