The story of a fired car salesman who is trying to hold on to his unemployment benefits shrinks down to one simple question: Who drew the penis? It’s a hard question to answer. According to a UPI report on Thursday, an employee at a car dealership harassed a female customer by handing her a business card with a penis drawn on the back of it.

For the incident, David Dell was fired by Teton Motors. But now, Dell is fighting to continually get his unemployment checks because there is no proof that he drew the picture that resulted in his job dismissal.

Thus far, Dell has received unemployment benefits but Teton Motors in Wyoming wants the Unemployment Insurance Commission to change its decision to grant the former car salesman his unemployment benefits.

Since there was no actual proof as to who drew the penis on the back of the business card that was handed to the female customer, the Commission decided last October that Dell could get his checks. However, Teton Motors is challenging the Unemployment Insurance Commission’s ruling on the matter. The dealership says they are adversely affected by Dell receiving the benefits because the business has to pay part of his benefits.

According to the reported filing in the case, the woman who received the business card with the penis drawn on the back came to the dealership interested in buying a car and spoke with David Dell. At the end of the meeting, he handed her his business card. The card had a drawing of a penis on the back, which Dell claims he did not realize at the time. He tried to follow up with the woman, but she hung up on him. A half-a-year later, the female customer contacted Teton Motors interested in a car she’d seen online. The person assisting her with her auto inquiry tried to direct her to Dell, but she refused to work with him, citing the penis drawing as her reason. After that, Teton Motors fired Dell.

But the story doesn’t end there. Pamela Parkins – Dell’s attorney – asserts that another employee who was dismissed when Dell was fired is the one who actually drew the penis on the back of the business card. According to the attorney, the other person who was fired was always messing around with Dell’s business cards.

At this point, the car dealership wants Dell to not receive unemployment checks and also to be required to pay back the benefits he has already gotten.

A call to the business on Thursday afternoon confirmed that David Dell worked at a Teton Motors in Jackson, Wyoming. According to the operator on duty, the case is still unresolved.
