3 brake jobs in a year from MN

Just trying to save a guys tarnished reputation. Dianna called in from Minneapolis. She had 3 brake jobs in a year. The only change was the addition of her significant other to the car. Instead of hard driving could it be due to the drivers with the left foot on the brake. Especially if he just started driving it. His van may have taken more force while the stanza doesn’t require as much. This can explain the decrease in gas mileage also n

Similar thing happened to a friend when his wife started driving his car. Mystery solved when he followed her and saw that the brake lights never went out.
