It's work experience week at school, and while Jay has sorted out something for himself and Simon at his dad's plant hire, a mix-up leaves Neil at a paper and Will at a garage. Mr Gilbert is either unable or unwilling to change things, so Will gets to see life in a place where he is "too clever" to actually work.
