Derrick's job search was initially going badly, until he found Parlorly Ice Cream ice cream parlor, which hired him to a job behind the counter.
Parlorly Ice Cream
Derrick's boss was a middle-aged man named Mr. Parlorly (I know, right?). Mr. Parlorly would become a mentor to Derrick, showing him how to count the money and scoop the ice cream.

Customers were Derrick's main issues. Most were fine, but about one in every ten had some sort of problem or issue with him or the parlor, and as a result Derrick learned quickly to expect bad things every time someone walked through the front door. So when he heard a very important ice cream taster for a TV sow was coming, he thought the worst.
At first, Derrick was very nervous, because no customer had ever been this high-profile. But the taster loved the ice cream he made, and gave him a huge amount of prize money, $100,000 for his winning dessert treat!
When Derrick brought the money to his family, they were ecstatic. They used it to start renting a small, inner city townhouse, and his mom used the remainder to tide them over until she found a job as a secretary at a local office. Derrick was able to go back to school, as were his sisters. Life was all back to normal... except better.
