Good morning, Louise.

You should have started 9:00.

- What happened?

- A problem with the car.

This shouldn't happen.

It's the second time this week.

Only ten minutes.

That's ten minutes too much.

Can I go?


Do you never apologize?

Not that tone please!

The next time you'll

learn to know me.

This is still tame!

There won't be next time.

Let's hope so.

And improve your appearance.

Customers can see you.


Thank you.


Can you take it please?

A glass of red wine.

Here you are.

Put the coffee

on my account?

Just remember it's 35 now.

That's not too much.

Don't worry.

You should have come the 15th.

Really? Is that new?


can you get the folder?

You didn't answer.

Is it new?

I have no idea.

Why did I come then?

No apartments for me?

Sit down, please.

Come back in two weeks.

Can you write that down?

New, I haven't used it.

- What is that?

- Silver.

And the glasses too?

70 for everything.

Check or cash?

- Not more?

- No.

Those are the rates.

And if I add this?

20 .

20 ?

At least 90.

All purchases are checked.

- Check or cash?

- Cash.

Thank you.

Sign here.



What are you doing there?

I'm coming.

Come on.

We are in the top three.


- How much?

- Not the whole. 40- 50 .


Can you get it out?

I don't want Nicole to know.


I won.

- Leaving?

- Yes, for work.

- And you?

- No, not yet.


- Thank you, Nicole.

Next time I'll buy.


That's not all, Nicole.

You're like my daughter.

You could work anywhere.

Would you rather

work in an office?

And sleep with the boss.

How long have you had a conflict

with the landlord?

How much is it?



I thought so.

What's this, 140 only?

Sorry, I can't afford more.

We agreed about 350.

Do we need to haggle

every time?

I can't promise anything.

As you wish.

Mme. Wimmer, it's simple.

Either you pay or we'll

open a procedure.

- How are you?

- Alright.

Remember me?

Yes, I remember.

I'll pay next week.

- Your credit is exhausted.

- Yes, I know.

Hurry up. If money's not coming,

I'll also have problems.

- Don't worry, I'll pay.

- But when?

Sorry, phone...

I'll be back.

Where's the lighter...

I'm fine. And you?

Your father?

You want me to meet

your father?

Can't you do it yourself?

Dunno. After work.

Why the hell do you

want that dog?

It needs to be walked,

and all the food... What?

I don't know.

Call me,

I'll invent something.

Eat together?

At Pepom's?


See ya.

Should we talk a little?

To say what?

I've nothing to say.

I must go.

As you wish.


Shit car!

Are you alright?

I've 3 rooms left to clean.

So what?

He said 20 minutes per room,

but I need 40.

You'll learn.

I really need this job.

It'll work out.

Tears won't help.

Come with me.

Take the dirty towels.

Wipe the water

from the sink...

and the bathtub.

That's it.

The main thing's the hair.

Men have always

hair lying around.

You put the soap,

fold the towels,

and voil.

In 3 minutes it's all done.

Everything else is fast done.

Got it?

No, just no music...

- You're finished?

- Not yet, thanks.

Damn shit!

It looks okay.

Maybe it's...

No, not that.

Should work.

You won't cheat me?

Thank you, thank you...

- See ya tomorrow.

- See ya.

Don't drink so much.

Stop it!

- The battery is flat.

- What?

- May I look?

- Don't get late for work.

I'm on the night shift.

Well, everything's okay.

Here's some crap.

What is it?

It's the head gasket.

Is it serious?

Well... possibly.

I can't afford the garage.

- But it is necessary.
