As it turns out, this is also good advice when dealing with contractors: "Will you need more outlets in your garage?"
"Do you expect to use more than 15 amps between your kitchen and garage?"
"Do you need more than 15 amps just for your garage?"
You can stop saying yes when they stop asking questions. Otherwise, just rinse and repeat. Else you might find yourself in the un-enviable position of trying to run a mill, its stepper motors, control PC, a small space heater, garage door opener, air compressor, and kitchen all at the same time on a 15 amp circuit. You can image how well that ended!
When I opened the panel and saw the 15 amp breaker, I was once again tempted to track down the scurvy rat that built our house so I could throttle him. He's a contractor though, which means he'd probably take me. A shame.
