News reaches us that Nigel Sharrock’s exit from Grey has had serious ramifications for the agency.

News reaches us that Nigel Sharrock’s exit from Grey has had

serious ramifications for the agency.



Following top-level talks, a memo has been circulated explaining that

staff are allowed to wear casual clothes on a Friday - as long as they

don’t choose shorts.



But where does this leave the normally already casually dressed lads and

lasses in the creative department?



Keen to take part and foster team spirit, we understand the entire

department arrived at work last Friday ... in suits.



Oh, and here’s another rule that obviously took several meetings to

decide: Grey staff have been banned from taking newspapers into the

toilets (something we’ve been told Sharrocks did a lot).



Funnily enough, reading papers in the toilet is also verboten over at

BBH, whose Hegsey has tried several schemes to stop staff reading while

they powder their noses.
