Diary: Senior and Murphy's tale of two transport systems

It appears that Robert Senior and James Murphy, two of the most talked-about men in advertising, are learning that career change comes at a price: transportation.

Senior, the newly appointed head of SSF, has become the latest in a long line of big cheeses at 80 Charlotte Street to be lovingly handed the use of a chauffeur-driven car.

However, Senior, a fitness freak who runs triathlons, is so baffled by the car that appears to be stalking him and offering him lifts, that he has begun offering its services to his lunch companions instead.

Meanwhile, in stark contrast to this, Murphy, who is now on gardening leave from Rainey Kelly Campbell Roalfe/Y&R, is having to come to terms with life-after- cab-account and has been forced to use London's Underground system.

He was recently discovered shuffling around central London with a confused look on his face as he attempted to work out how to use that new piece of technological trickery, the Oyster Card.

Then, following his successful victory over the ticket-barriers, he was seen riding the rails with the exultant glow of an American tourist using the Tube for the very first time.
