Man has no career aspirations
RETAIL worker Stephen Malley has no desire to do a job other than the one he is already doing.
34-year-old Malley works in a garden centre, helping people with advice on products and ensuring that the displays are kept looking tidy and presentable.
He said: “I like talking to customers, most of whom are alright. The people I work with are pleasant and it’s rarely too stressful.
“To be honest I like going home and not having to think about it too much. I do some gardening or watch the football.”
Malley’s cousin Tom Booker said: “It’s like he’s just got this job that isn’t high-powered or particularly well paid but he stubbornly refuses to feel any self-loathing. I’m not going to say that’s outright wrong but at the same time I don’t really like it.
“I’m pulling in 82k working in finance and that doesn’t even seem to annoy him.
“He should at least be doing a course in the evenings, even if it’s just in massage or Spanish.”
Booker’s sister-in-law Emma Bradford said: “I’ve shown him copies of GQ magazine with pictures of all the trousers and suchlike that he could have if he were a bit more ambitious.
“He nods and smiles almost as if he is humouring me. Doesn’t he realise I’m the one who’s trying to patronise him?
“Clearly he is mentally ill.”
