Could anyone explain to me the following sentence : dont't go bonding with below the stairs?
Context : a policewoman is told this by her superior after she has told him the conclusions of her colleague (an oldfashioned policeman)

Thank you!

    "Below the stairs" est une expression utilisée pour parler de domestiques.
    Sans plus de contexte, peut-être : Ne noue pas de liens avec les sous-fifres ??
