Lazy, sloppy, incompetent cooks who frequently use short cuts as a substitute for hard-work and skill. Shoemakers are rarely capable of cleaning up after themselves, frequently earning the enmity and contempt of the dishwashers. Always check a shoemaker’s garbage bin to see what salable product has been misused, wasted, and hidden to avoid censure.
Were you going to season that? Don't be a shoemaker.

The Shoemaker is this person in the workplace whose work ends up getting done by his line manager and/or by the firm's client. They can't sack him cos he's too cute and has been with the company from day one as well has having loads on them. People are left wondering how the work is getting magically done, and refer to those who are doing it as being elves. As in the children story " The elves and the shoemaker".
Well fuck me here comes The Shoemaker. There are no flies on him, he is meeting his targets cos those midnight elves have been on the case again. If only those elves could give me a pull out.
