to run a tight ship

The meaning of the phrase to "run a tight ship" is pretty clear. A restaurant manager, for example, who runs a tight ship makes sure that he is looking out for food safety, bills properly, pays taxes and so on. Is there a Greek phrase that approximates this concept?

Conversely is there a phrase for the opposite? Someone who does NOT run a tight ship lets things slide, and gets his or her business in to trouble.

Any thoughts would be appreciated:blink:

Hi Zazula,

Thank you for the link. I am looking for something positive. What is the connotation of "τους έχω όλους απίκο" and "Τους έχω στην τσίτα;¨ Do they imply that the manager is a bit of a tyrant?

Thank you :)
