Car Dealership Stirs the Pot with Controversial Sign

A Canadian car dealership is in hot water for posting a set of signs that make fun of female drivers. One sign read "Women are like snowflakes. They can't drive."

Chelsea Ling of Papercakes Pretty posted a photo of the sign on Facebook. She also told CBC, "I'm very much for businesses doing what they want and not for people saying 'oh, they run a business, they can't do that,' but I think there should be a common sense line of what's hateful and what's funny. Just because it is normal in society, I don't believe it's okay."

John Mellish, who owns Mellish Motors on Prince Edward Island changed the sign to read "Sensitive Women Don't Read This Sign You Know Who You Are!" Then, he changed it again to read "Attention Drama Queens. Auditions for today have been cancelled!"

Mellish told the CBC, "We probably struck a nerve with one or two people out there, and so be it -- that's fair ball. Some people take it the right way and I love that."

Mellish told "Morning Show on the Go," "If I put up something about men or about myself, there's no response at all. If I put up something about females, there's a lot of apologies going on." He was asked if women are more sensitive, and he responded: "it appears to be that way."
