We've heard countless stories of sexual harassment and sexual violence in the wake of the #MeToo movement, which have unnerved us.
People are applauding the way a woman shut down a Jiffy Lube employee who sent her an inappropriate text message. We quite like how she handled it.
Twitter user @LovableandKind posted an inappropriate text message exchange her sister had with an employee at Jiffy Lube.
"My sister got creeped on and sexually harassed by a jiffy lube guy via text from his personal phone and..." she wrote as she presented us with evidence of her sister's brilliant takedown.

It's quite well done.
"You're gorgeous," the guy writes, never expecting the response that followed:
It gets even better...
...and better once you see the dig at end.
You have to admit: That's great thinking.
People certainly agreed––and some even shared stories of their own:

As expected, some trolls took the opportunity to claim the text message exchange was fake. @LovableandKind was prepared with a response:
