Christ, what an asshole.
Page took orders from service writers describing repairs needed for customers’ motorcycles and delivered the parts to the mechanics. Trouble started because one of the service writers was female, Tew said.
“He cussed my service writer out,” Tew said. “Basically because he felt that she was beneath him giving him orders, and in fact she was over him. … He didn’t like taking orders from any female.”
Despite warnings, the clashes continued and Tew fired Page.
Tew said Page did not come in contact with customers, and he recalled no racial incidents involving him until the day Page was fired. After Page was gone, Tew found an application for joining the Ku Klux Klan on Page’s desk.
“I threw that in the trash can,” Tew said. “He came back looking for it. And I told him I discarded that. He got all chapped again.”
