Yeah, we know, we saw that porno, too. Regardless, in real life, most mechanics are dudes. Customers are pretty evenly divided between men and women, from what we’ve seen, which means plenty of ladies picking up their cars from a mechanic dude are probably hot. We’re pretty sure at least some of you have thought about picking up one of the ladies before. Here are some of our thoughts on the best ways to go about doing that.
Actually Meeting Her
We don’t mean asking about the problems with her car and what she wants you to do. We mean asking her about her job, where she’s going to need snow tires, that kind of thing. It’s best to wait to do that until she’s been your customer a few times. Make sure you’re the one to greet her and take care of charging her, if you work at a private or small garage and don’t have someone working specifically in the front. It’s pretty easy to slip a question about her life in when you’ve talked to her that much; it’s almost expected. She’ll probably be friendly about it, as long as you haven’t been creepy and have taken good care of her car. Start having short conversations when she comes in, and make sure to slip in a little flirting too. Sure, this is a long time to spend on picking her up, but it also gives you a good idea if you might want more with her than going out to a bar and back to your place a few times.
Picking Her Up
After you’ve had actual conversations, if short, with her a few times, take care of charging her out when she comes back to pick up her car again. Have your little conversation and then say, “I’ll be off in an hour,” or however long. “After I’ve cleaned up, do you want to go out for dinner?”
She probably won’t look surprised by this. You’ve been building up to it, and she hasn’t shut you down. If she agrees, then it goes like any other pickup: figure out where you’ll go, if you’re picking her up, all that good stuff. Don’t discuss if she’ll come back with you yet; that’s a little early.
Next Time She Comes In
No matter how things go, she’ll need her car taken care of again. If things go well and you have more than hookups with her, you might be able to take care of her car on your own after hours and only charge her for parts. If you can’t do it after hours, reduce your prices as much as possible without your boss getting pissed; it’s all part of having a girlfriend. If it’s just hookups, be friendly and flirt.
If things go badly, though, don’t be a dick next time she comes in. Let someone else take care of her car, or at least talking to her. Don’t be rude.
