James and the Giant Slipper

I love it when workers come to my house from the German- speaking part of Switzerland (in today's case, shower/bathroom fitter from Bern) because not only they come with their own giant slippers so that they don't leave any marks on your floor, but they also clean so well after them that my bathroom is now cleaner than before they arrived!

so if you want the bathroom deep cleaned, tinker with stuff so it leaks just a little and call the pumber.

In Geneva, they just leave cigarette ash behind... that's the well behaved ones, the others leave the cigarette butt as well.
