Condescending Mechanics !!

Hi everyone,
I dont know if anyone else gets really exasperated with "know it all" mechanics when you go to a garage.
Just after New Year (between parties) I took my car in for the wipers to be checked and put right. They wouldnt go to the park position when I stopped at lights etc.
The mechanic told me "French cars arent really meant to be driven in wet weather and the problem would probably right itself" Result I went away with no repair done.
The next day my Dad took it in and the repair was done in about 5 minutes flat. The same mechanic told him it was a minor electrical fault.
Do older people get treated better by mechanics or is it just me ?
Currently in Katie-xx's garage:
2007 Megane Sports Tourer 1.6VVT
