Ear we go!
TS knows that PricewaterhouseCoopers didn’t get to the top of the accounting tree by being a lily-livered bunch of namby pambies (apologies to any namby pambies out there with non-lily livers), but the competitive spirit seems to be getting a tad out of hand.
Today’s Times reports that two PwC staff have been suspended after a fight in a Canary Wharf pub that almost left one of them without an ear. The details of the incident were sketchy although a spokesman for the firm said the ear severance was ‘overstating it’.
So the next time your hear someone saying that their auditor doesn’t listen to them, just remember that there might be a very good reason for it.
