Some, but I haven't really worked in those maintenance fields professionally because the work I did for free made it clear that working in those fields would degrade my sanity.
I worked as an IT intern at a high school, and for some reason a bunch of students and teachers constantly wanted computers fixed, because they couldn't understand the concept of wires needing to be plugged into holes in order for the computer to function. They couldn't even understand that the power cord needed to be connected.
I once fixed someone's computer where they had never, ever cleaned out the heatsink, and hired a computer maintenance guy to figure out why it was running slow, and why the fan was running at full blast the whole time it was on, the service tech apparently told her it was because the computer was old and working too hard to do basic tasks, and she needed to get a new computer to do the oh so demanding task of web surfing. I cleaned the heatsink out and it started functioning normally, but she insisted on believing the retarded service tech over my own expertise until I was done.
It's just a bunch of ignorant people who think they know what they are doing, but don't and people that apparently have some sort of learning disability. Some people just need things done, and don't cause any trouble. Thankfully I have never worked as a pro mechanic because some car manufacturers seem to be part of some sort of sick contest to make the least mechanic friendly car in existence, so mechanics would have to deal with retarded customers and mechanic unfriendly cars at the same time.

Thank you. Im a mechanic and yes, we constantly bitch about the stupidity of our customers and the ignorance of the engineers. Although there are plenty of customers that know way more than I do, Im no master mechanic. Sometimes though, their stupidity amazes me. We had this truck in and the starter bolt holes were stripped out, so it was just hanging there and dragging. Instead of tapping out the threads, he just wanted us to use a bunch of washers and JB Weld. We did it because he insisted, but we told him once he got out of the parking lot it would break. He called later on bitching about it. Hey, we told you. The motor was obviously newer than the vehicle, and I asked, "what kind of dumb fuck put this motor in?" The guy said he did. I see now.

I would guess the reason why car manufacturers make them mechanic unfriendly, is so that it is more likely that individuals will go back to the manufacturer to get them fixed...or maybe do as apple users do and get a newer one.

Its usually not even as malicious as that. The manufacturers are just trying to cram as much in to a small space as they can in order to make the car better whether that be in terms of power, fuel economy, price, or general overall size. In order to get one or more of those things, manufacturers will look at what they can sacrifice and usually, the end-user, or the buyer's, experience and satisfaction is much more important to them than the mechanic's.

The bolts went right into the transmission, and a lot of shit would have to be taken out of the way to make clearance for our drill, but still thats what we were planning on doing. The guy didnt like the price, so he thought hed come up with a cheaper alternative. We explained to him that no matter how much JB Weld he used it wasnt gonna take care of his problem. He also wanted it the same day, JB Weld doesnt completely cure in that short of time. Booger weld would hold better than that, and I wouldnt trust the booger weld. Besides, thats how he bought the truck so we didnt know if it was supposed to have a shim or not, that could have been why it was dragging. Why wouldnt you take care of that when you had the fucking motor out of it getting rebuilt? Some people man, they diagnose it themselves and think they know how to fix it and try to tell us how to do it. If they dont listen and still want it done, hey thats on them.
