Diary: Shit happens at VCCP, but the cleaner isn't amused

For an agency that prides itself on its reputation for enjoying the sweet smell of success, things got a bit stinky down at VCCP recently.

It all kicked off when an interloper in the agency clearly didn't have sufficient grasp of the art of using a toilet, something most of us master pretty early in life.

According to an internal VCCP e-mail currently doing the rounds in adland, an unidentified visitor (a courier, perhaps?) failed in this most basic of human tasks.

Brace yourself, readers, because the following description of what horror the cleaners uncovered in the agency's toilet is definitely not for the faint of heart. According to an extremely angry e-mail from the agency's cleaning company, someone went into the toilet and deposited a turd on some paper towels.

The aforementioned turd was then wrapped in the paper towel and put into the waste bin on the wall. Clearly, the wrapping of this particular parcel was insufficient because it was quickly discovered by the poor unsuspecting cleaner, who was no doubt braced for little more than soggy tissues, not a full-grown turd.

The unfortunate cleaner was understandably traumatised by the event, so much so, in fact, that she has threatened to sue her cleaning company. The only tiny consolation was that she was (very luckily) wearing rubber gloves.

VCCP bosses are, naturally, distraught at the situation and are taking the matter incredibly seriously. As is the Campaign Diary.
