Let's play a scenario where all of your colleagues are absent from duty for one reason or another (let's say off-sick). A guest is scheduled to arrive but the bathroom hasn't been cleaned in their room yet because there is no one to do it. You have tried to hire a professional third-party cleaner, but no one shows up. Will you pick up the toilet brush and clean the bathroom yourself so that the guest isn't inconvenienced? *
