Yiddish word to go along with shlemiel

Hi linguaphiles --

Wikipedia says that shlemiel is an inept clumsy person, a bungler, a dolt. We're wondering if Yiddish has a word to describe a person who's continually picking up or cleaning up after him. Thoughts? Feel free to say that there isn't one; it's just a shot in the dark.
