I am not sure it is a case of not caring or being lazy, I think they simply don't know any better, and are firmly entrenched in the idea that the governement will take of everyting. All that is required of them is to be present.
I have seen lawyers do that, and expect big sums of money for the pleasure, just because that is how it is (or was).
I have an estate agent friend who is always amazed at how a spanish client goes to look at an apartment, and as long as it has the right amount of bedrooms and bathrooms, they take it! Little consideration of further niceties or comfort.
Possibly it is us who are spoilt???
