Glenn the Pine Marten, age 51, from Stockport



This is Glenn.  He is a Pine Marten.

Glenn the Pine Marten has worked very hard to get where he is today.  Glenn has strong opinions about how much time teenagers spend staring at screens.  Glenn is a systems analyst and spends ten hours a day analysing systems on a big computer monitor.

Glenn is proud that he is so valued by his employer that he has only been given the statutory minimum amount of annual leave.  Glenn knows that if he did not put in the hours the company would fall to pieces.

When he was a young man Glenn bought a Kit-Kat that was entirely devoid of any wafer.  He knows how much his friends like hearing the story about his solid chocolate Kit-Kat.  He has told the story many times and is well practiced at not letting his friends interrupt him.

A month ago Glenn found out that his financial advisor was criminally incompetent.  Glenn will have to work for more years than some of his friends at the squash club, because his pension scheme has collapsed.

Three days ago Glenn was pleasantly surprised to receive a phone call from the support department of a very well known software company.  Now Glenn has 24 hours to find out what a Bitcoin is otherwise his friends at the squash club will find out about the websites he looks at while his wife is out playing bingo.
