A Cleaner

There was a man. He liked to go into other homes. But what was he doing in there?

He had a secret hobby -- cleaning people's homes.

Long John Spritzer, as he had come to be known, was a friend of mine a long time ago ... before ... the accident.

But he had been so badly injured in the accident, where he fell into a vat of soup, that all he knew what to do was clean homes.

Imagine the tragedy of such a life: it's not like the poor guy enjoys breaking, entering and cleaning (Penal Code #57.9), he just can't remember how to stop doing that!

He has to do another job but he does not know how to do it.

One day he accidentally broke into a high-rise apartment building and re-emerged 6 months later a changed man...

The clothes he found there, and was now wearing, were those of a high-power business executive, so he stopped breaking into people's houses and cleaning them up, and instead started breaking into people's businesses and cleaning out their bank accounts.
