After a recent early morning paddle near Hurley in Surrey Musgrove

contrived to lose his car keys. He proceeded to spend half an hour on

his knees in the car park thinking he’d dropped them on land, before

realising they must be in the water.



Then followed a lengthy couple of hours hunting for a call box and

waiting for the AA while shivering in a figure-hugging wetsuit.



Eventually the man from the AA turned up to open the car but apparently

didn’t make a good job of things. ’He ripped the entire car apart,’

laments Musgrove.



Musgrove finally made it into the office at 1.30 pm having missed a key

client meeting with representatives from JYRA Research. and escaped a

telling off because of the sheer bizarre nature of his excuse. ’He’s had

some stick, or should I say paddle, since,’ quips agency head Richard

Harris.
