A Clean Desk is the sign of?

I'm better than I used to be, the surface of my desk is usually visible, and I do tidy paperwork away when not needed.

And I keep my bike cleaner too. Although that's partly down to it not being used so much :(

But I've never been one of those riders who keep their bikes pristine clean and polished. Although rarely filthy, my bikes have usually had a 'patina' - which, as experts in antiques will know - should not be polished away.

So it was with some concern that I read this sentiment:
"If they can’t keep the train clean, is it safe?"

Which led me to wonder what trainees have thought - expecially with the 'first impressions count' idea - when I've arrived for sessions with a dirty bike?

Obsessively cleaning anything is a disgusting perversion.
