When Clive Hodgson returned to work following a month backpacking around Australia, he agonised over how colleagues would react to the dramatic makeover in his appearance.
For Clive, a 54 year old sales rep from Basingstoke had not only pulled up in the car park on a brand new BMW RS 1200 GT motorcycle but had also let what was left of his rapidly thinning hair grow uncharacteristically long and was now sporting a few wispy strands tied back in a ponytail.
Clive who had never even considered either a motorcycle or ponytail in the past, being of the opinion that any self respecting middle aged man with embarrassing wispy hair like his shouldn't be seen dead within a hundred miles of either.
However, Clive thought that maybe he was the exception to the rule and unlike all the other deluded berks of his generation, that he might well be the one who could carry it off.
Clive need not have feared.
Despite wearing full racing leathers and a diamond studded chain through his nose, none of his colleagues had noticed the motorbike or jewellery. However, the ponytail was an instant success, immediately drawing admiring glances from both male and female colleagues alike.
'We used to call him that fat balding prick with the frizzy grey Brillo pad on his head - but not any more' said Greg from accounts 'now it's that fat balding prick with the frizzy grey ponytail on his head.
He's got a right result there and no mistake. Wish I'd had the nerve'.
Even part time model and office pin-up Ellie from the canteen had nothing but praise for Clive's ponytail.
'I used to think he was a bit of a dick before, but just look at him now.
I never realised he looked so much like Johnny Depp until he grew the ponytail.
Have you seen him in his grey mohair cardigan - to die for.
What do you mean it's not mohair?
'Ponytail envy of the office' admit colleagues.
