Just over a third (35 per cent) of women believe men possess the skill to fix things such as faulty cars or slow computers, a new survey found.
Almost three out of four (73 per cent) of women felt mending a car should definitely be taken care of by the man of the house.
But women say men are now likely to have only basic skills such as grass-cutting, putting up pictures or washing dishes, the Daily Express reported.
And men who took part in the poll admitted being useless at certain tasks.
More than half (51 per cent) admitted lack of knowledge about upgrading a computer hard drive, while a quarter said changing the oil on their car was a big puzzle.
Computer upgrade specialists Crucial.com commissioned the poll of over 2,000 people.
