Hot Plumber Rachel Griffiths Says She Gets Hit On a Lot at Work

The saying that what a man can do, a woman can do it and do it better still holds, right? Well, according to this female plumber named Rachel Griffiths, she gets the sexiest comments from people due to her plumbing work. People ask her how she’s able to lift her tools since they think the tools are too heavy for a woman to lift.

The Daily Mail got more;

A plumber has revealed the sexist comments she gets while at work – including being told to ‘make sandwiches’ and asked if her ‘tools are too heavy’.

Rachel Griffiths, 25, from Connah’s Quay, Wales, first started out as a plumber’s apprentice at 16, and has spent the past nine years improving her skills within the trade.

Rachel, who bought he first house at 21, often receives sexist and patronising comments because of her gender.

She’s now trying to break any pre-conceived stereotypes that surround the male dominated industry, creating a pathway for more women to follow their dreams of becoming a plumber.

‘Almost every time I’m on a job, people are shocked when they open the door because they’re not expecting a woman. ‘It’s both men and women that comment on it which I find a bit weird.

‘The comments are usually along the lines of, “You don’t look like you should be a plumber”, “Are you on your own’ ‘are you’re tools not too heavy for you’.

‘On social media I’ve had comments like “Close enough to the sink to do the dishes” or like “Make me a sandwich”.

‘It’s even worse when I get the “You’re far too pretty to be a plumber”. It’s like people have this stereotypical image in that women, especially relatively pretty ones, can’t be plumbers.

‘It’s not just a stereotype that women can’t be in the industry, there’s one for how women should look if they work as plumbers too.

‘One of my worst experiences was when I did a radiator valve replacement job for a letting agent.

‘There was nothing wrong with my work, but the resident rang the agent after I left complaining that they shouldn’t send a woman to do a man’s job. It angered me quite a bit really.

‘The whole experience can be pretty patronising sometimes, but I try and ignore it, and I now use social media that I can do my job just as well, if not better, than any man in the industry.’
