Barry Bean was
unemployed. Because he didn’t have a job, he watched TV all day.

Barry got a job making pizzas, but the weekly

Barry tried construction work. The
hours were better (from 8am to 5pm), but the weekly wage was still low, and...

...his wife Barbara had just had a baby bean! 

Barry had never been to university, so he had no
qualifications. He studied information technology for two long years...

He passed all his exams and got his diploma.

applied for jobs as a computer operator and went to several interviews.

Eventually he got a job. The monthly
salary was enough to get by on, and although he lived very far from the office and had to commute, he had perks such as paid travel expenses and free lunches in the company restaurant.

But Barry soon got bored in an office job with no
prospects and little chance of promotion to a better position in the company.

He started taking long lunch breaks in the pub.

And being late for work. Until one day...

got the sack.

applied for other jobs, but without a good reference from his last employer...

...he had little success.
