BRICKERS TIRE SERVICE BRICKERS TIRE SERVICE hit on me when I came in to get new tires. They were crude and rude to me. ST. PETERSBURG, Florida

*Consumer Comment: Get off her case!!!

*General Comment: They were Unprofessional but

Show customers why they should trust your business over your competitors...

 I really don't know where to begin. Brickers tire co, of St. Petersburg, Fl. was recommended to me by a friend who had work done there in the past. He said it had been quite awhile ago and he hadn't been there in over 4 years, but said he received a fairly good deal last time. I took his word for it and went in to get 4 new tires for my car. Now being a woman, I am cautious who I go to for anything as the auto industry tends to take advantage of women, in general, so I always have my guard up. 

I was told ( not asked ) to sit at this dirty picnic table with grease and dirt all over it . They do not have ANY inside climate controlled areas for their customers to wait, so rather than stand, I opted to sit at this filthy table.Then it started. The one worker, ( he may be the owners son, he had a woman working there that I believe he called Angela or something similar, may have been his wife, who left shortly after I arrived there ) started flirting with me almost immediately after this woman left.  He was talking about how hot it was that day and then said " so are you ".

   I thought " how unprofessional and crude this man was, but My tires were off, and I was virtually a prisoner " so I just sat there and hoped this would be over soon.  The next thing I had to deal with was the condescending the other brother ( he looked similar so I just assumed they were related ) started doing to me. I asked about the differences on the tires they were putting on versus my old ones and he says " sweetheart, I could explain it to you, but you wouldn't understand what I was telling you. How rude to assume I couldn't think for myself and calling me sweetheart was very rude, and sexist .

 I just said ok and prayed I would get out of there asap. I had to get up and stretch my legs for a minute due to the hard table and when I did, the both of them watched my backside until I got out of the building and out of site. I was made to feel like a piece of meat and was getting very scared.  They finally finished and I paid the bill and got out of there as fast as I can. I later checked with some other tire companies and found out they had charged me $70.00 more than I could have purchased the same tires elsewhere and not been subjected to their taunts. Lesson learned!!!

I saw another complaint on a google search and decided to let the public know about this to possible help some women in the future from going through the humiliation they put me through. This is a terrible company that insults your intelligence as well as making you feel like a second class citizen and they treat women like crap, at least they did me. I hope this saves some people from doing business with this company. They don't even have good prices and their service is certainly in need of improvement.

I will never go back to them and if I told my husband how they treated me, there would be hell to pay, so hopefully, he wont see this post and I must remain anonymous to avoid this, also,   I am afraid to put my name here as they may be vengeful for being honest and reporting them to the world. Be careful ladies, BRICKERS TIRE  is a scary place to do business ( at least with women ). It's back behind a main strip store and very dirty as well as the rude employees.  Be warned. Stay away!!!!

Get off her case!!!

AUTHOR: Joe Customer - (United States of America)

I am responding to the idiot that commented about the lady getting over the way she was treated at Brickers tire service.
Where do you get off telling her to get over the abuse she obviously went through there. Guess you have never been assaulted or scared in a situation. FAT CHANCE!
 You probably are a woman abuser since you have NO compassion for woman. And, how do you know she hasn't been raped or worse?
1 out of three woman have had sexual issues in their lives, so who do you think you are to comment in this way, other than an idiot who does not think before you speak. She should have called the police since this did not stop with one situation. She was very adult in her composure and she SHOULD have posted this as now with the internet, people can discuss the bad business practices of bad businesses and it will cost them revenue as well as reputation, if they do these things, so don't be so quick to dismiss this ladies attempts to bring an obviously bad business to the fore-front for what they are.
I just wish they could pay for being such terrible unprofessionals. But I guess that's what happens when you do business with a company around in the back of a strip mall. You do get what you pay for. My advice, AVOID this so called business at all costs. They don't seem to mind insulting their customers as well as making them feel uncomfortable.There are a lot of other tire companies that WILL treat the customer with respect rather than with sarcasm so you should go there instead.

You need to learn to go out in public alone without fear. If you were assaulted or a rape victim in your past I would understand but you sound a little too sensitive. If you don't like how your being treated speak up. Get a manager. Say something for petes sake. Otherwise you just come off looking like a whiny a*s whoose. This is 2012 you don't need a man to chaperone you or tell a smart a*s kid to buzz off. DIY.
