Cutting all ties


TS has never much cared for wearing a tie ­ anything other than a pair of shorts and a jug of Pimms is superfluous. So imagine TS’ delight, then, when over 50% of FD’s polled in the latest Accountancy Age/Reed Finance Big Question said the mandatory wearing of ties in the workplace should be scrapped.

One respondent was particularly eloquent in his argument for the scrapping of those silly pieces of cloth we all hate. ‘Whoever invented the tie should be hung by one!’ he enthused. ‘They are uncomfortable and a danger around shredding machines!’

One wonders whether staff at Andersen’s US offices considered that danger.
