[Tagging] Shop vs amenity

I have a problem understanding these two important keys. They are
defined on Wiki as:
Shop: "Use shop=* to mark the location of a shop and the products that
it sells." + "A place selling retail products or services."
Amenity: "Covering an assortment of community facilities including
toilets, telephones, banks, pharmacies and schools." + "For describing
useful and important facilities for visitors and residents."
Now the problem is I don't know how to recognize one from the other.
Here are my cases to resolve:
1. I suggested changing the banks + ATMs color on default map to brown,
because I thought shop is selling goods and amenity is about services.
But we have hairdresser and beauty salon both under shop=* namespace.
2. I thought that maybe the difference is shop selling services while
amenity is the rest of services - but theaters or cinemas are in general
3. The interesting case is also car wash vs car repair - they both are
in general selling services (we have car_parts for shops just selling
goods), but one is tagged as amenity and the other is tagged as a shop,
so a standard rendering would be strange a bit:
What do you think about those cases and where are possible mistakes to
fix - and how should we do it?
