The assumption we all make is mechanics will try to rip women off because generally, women know less about vehicles. Obviously that’s not true with all women, but it’s generally the case.
Turns out, it’s the complete opposite.
A new study found that mechanics actually charge MEN more than women for the exact same service. The reason? Because women will flirt with the guys at the shop to get a better deal.
There is one exception to all of this, though: Blondes. The average woman gets charged less than the average man, but blonde women get charged more than anyone. Whaaaaat?!
In the study, Redheads and brunettes were quoted $89 for installing new brake pads, men were quoted $107, and blondes were quoted $112.
Damn, sorry blondes. At least we still have the stereotype of being super smart!
