Diary: JWT seeks super-skiver

So the World Cup's finally here and we're all starting to devise our excuses to get out of work so we can watch that crucial Group H encounter between Switzerland and Chile.

And for the staff at JWT, there's an even bigger incentive for them to get thinking of a good reason to miss work - the agency is giving the person who comes up with the most creative and original excuse tickets to the England vs Slovenia match, along with paid-for flights and five days' accommodation in South Africa. They'll also have their winning excuse printed on a five-foot England flag for them to hold up during the game.

Well, it sure beats trying to sneak glimpses of the games on the computer at work.
