Thursday 20th June 2013

A man who had been unemployed for seven years recently turned down a job at a bakery as he didn't want to wear a hat.

Julia Hartley BrewerPaul in Clerkenwell first called LBC 97.3 in December and revealed that he had recently been offered a job, but he rejected it as he didn't want to get up at 7.30am.

We caught up with him in February, when he had taken that job, but was sacked two weeks later for twice being late for work after late nights at parties.

Julia Hartley-Brewer spoke to him again this afternoon and was dumbstruck when he revealed he was offered a job at a famous bakery, but said no, as he didn't want to wear a hat.
