Now, this is the good stuff!

A woman named Maggie shared a video on TikTok that showed how she handled a situation that a lot of women out there deal with: male hardware store workers thinking that a woman can’t possibly know what she’s doing when it comes to home improvement.

Maggie said she is a “furniture flipper” who has a couple of years rehabbing and selling furniture so she sounds like she’s pretty handy.

Maggie’s viral TikTok video showed her at a video store where she looked to be petty as hell to an employee.

She explained, “This employee acted like I was an idiot for grouting peel and stick tile. I came back to show him, once I finished.”

The caption on her video reads, “I even explained the instructions say you can grout but NAH, I still didn’t know what I was doing.”

In the video, the store employee can be heard off camera while Maggie has a conversation with him.

She said, “Did I speak to you about the peel and stick grout the other day?”

The man said “yes” and Maggie then proudly told him that it worked just fine.
