The homeopathist
When my wife and I moved into our new flat in Paris, the previous tenant was a doctor. Actually, she was a homeopathist, but apparently under French law, alternative quacks still have to have degrees in medicine before they can practise. This must require levels of doublethink that George Orwell himself would blush at, but I digress.

On moving in, we soon realised that the place hadn't been cleaned beyond the odd superficial wipe of visible surfaces, and to make things worse, it was infested with cockroaches that took months to get rid of. You'd think that a doctor would understand basic hygiene; I like to think she tried to shift the bugs by catching one, shaking it up in a jar of water, diluting to the point of one cockroach per ocean of water and spreading the stuff around the flat.
