My rebuttal:

Oil Change Instructions for Women:

1) Pull up to Jiffy Lube when the mileage reaches 3000 miles since the last oil change.
2) Drink a cup of coffee
3) 15 minutes later, write a check and leave with a properly maintained vehicle.

Money spent:
Oil Change: $20.00
Coffee: $1.00
Total: $21.00

But then . . .

4) Engine seizes because JL "technician" left drain plug out
5) Call tow truck; scream at JL manager
6) New engine, $2500
7) Rental car while dealer installs new engine, $500 ($50/day x 10 days)
7) Lawyer to threaten to sue JL, $185.00/hr. (I could be way low on this)
8) JL eventually settles, but lawyer takes big cut

End result:
New engine;
Lawyer and rental car manager are now your best friends;
You've lost 10 years off your life and gained 2,000 new gray hairs.

Point this out next time somebody sends you this misandric e-mail.
