Tool box advice

I work in a tire shop, but I'm trying to make my way up into a dealership sometime soon.
My uncle says he has a decent toolbox he'd give me for free, but I don't have that many tools to fill it with.
If I bring the box into the shop, all I have is an electronic Milwaukee impact, an air hose impact, two socket sets, a hammer, two ratchets, and some other little miscellaneous tools.
Is it a good idea to bring the toolbox into the shop anyway? It's like the one in the picture but pretty beat up.

    >is it a good idea to bring my tools to work where I use my tools to do my job
    what are you even asking? are you worried you won't be taken seriously unless you have all snap-on tools and finance a rolling tool chest?

      A little bit, yes, because I am a female and already struggle a little bit with being taken seriously in the work place.
      Is this irrational? I will probably go for it and bring the box in some time this week.

          I try not to, plus my coworkers are very supportive.

          >I am a female
          Oh brother, here we go. I'm inclined to believe you since only a woman could wonder whether she should bring her tools, which are required to do her job, to her job.

          On the other hand, you know the drill.

          I keep my tools in a bag in the trunk of my car, but since I work for a large tire brand the tools I need are already provided. It'd just be nice to have a place to keep my things.

          Wait nevermind it is me kekw

            I'm not sure why I thought this board would be helpful and supportive lmfao I guess that's my bad.

        I'll never work at a shop that has women working in the shop.
        I don't even like them working in the office.
        >working at used car lot
        >two women in the office - mother/daughter
        >constant fricking family drama
        >being b***hy to each other in front of the customers
        >being c**ts to the shop guys

        >working at auto parts store
        >multiple women there at different points (staff turnover)
        >constant fricking family drama
        >avoiding work
        >one of them reported me to hr because I was better at the job than her and her little ego got bruised
        >she got fired for propositioning a customer and it was caught on camera

        >working at ag dealer
        >one office lady, service coordinator
        >she was actually competent
        >the shop techs would go bullshit in her office as much as they could and shop productivity was terrible

        >working at heavy equipment dealer
        >office lady, deals with some service and warranty stuff

    I'd offer support but you are a woman. realistically all you would have to do is put out to somebody that you might not find exceptionally attractive, and you could never work again for the rest of your life.
    take the toolbox in or don't I don't give a frick if my dick isn't wet.

    Imagine being a woman and choosing to work as a tire monkey.

    If you really wanted to surround yourself with a mostly male workforce, you could have just cruised though an engineering school (with financial aid you'll get for being a woman in STEM), got a comfy white collar job with an established company (with preferential hiring because you're a woman), and lurked around the office batting your eyes and suspiciously fanning your shirt at the most attractive/competent/highest earning team lead there to set you for life (who will fall in love with you immediately because he barely interacts with women that are not >20 years his senior).

    It's so easy, but you work on cars instead.

    Get the box from your uncle, it's better than nothing. Sooner or later you'll be accumulating more & more tools, once you realize that you don't have any more storage in that old box, then buy a new box that suits your needs. Don't be pressured into buying a tool truck brand box, the ones from Harbor Freight are just fine. Protip: breasts OR GTFO!!!!

    Did you happen to miss every single thread where an aspiring mechanic asks about becoming one and we tell them it's a shit career and you'll be miserable sooner rather than later and that you'll be better off learning wrenching for yourself? It's been more than a decade since becoming one and I absolutely hate cars.

    It’s always so funny to me that mechanics have to provide their own tools, even the ones at dealers. It’s like they’re hairdressers renting a space at a salon.

    You'll fill a box that size very, very quickly. I've got a Husky 42" workbench absolutely filled with my tools that I use as a hobby mechanic. If you're trying to make mechanic work a career, you'll accumulate tools like fricking crazy. I do all my own work, including modifying two off road vehicles for serious rock crawling. I'm going to need a second box soon and my tools don't even make me money.
