My father always told me to call him when I go for oil changes, tire rotations and the like to prevent me, his daughter, from being taken advantage of by the big bad men in the auto repair shop. His concern? Valid. It’s been proven that women are more likely to be mislead during car repairs and maintenance in regards to quality, pricing and overcharging, and customer service. The solution? Introducing mechanic bae. Get you a mechanic, girl. Ok, here’s the play by play: 1. Have a car. 2. Actually have a car problem that needs fixing. 3. Scope out the top three shops where you see the most potential. 4. Make your move. It’s best to look great, smell better, and be friendly — not thirsty. Remember, you’re in a male dominant workplace, there may be more than one eye candy. Don’t get distracted. Choose one and stick with him, he’ll notice the special attention. Having a mechanic in your pocket is like having guaranteed life insurance for your car — at a discount. Mine is named Vixen and she needs revival should anything happen to her! And who doesn’t like a man who’s good with his hands? And cleaning up the daily dirty car oil under his fingernails makes for intense bonding sessions. Go for it.
