Man sent home from work for wearing shorts in very hot weather goes back to office in his mum's dress

Lol. Some people are crazy sha. We've all heard of the heat wave in the UK. Temperatures have soared as high as 34C in London and residents now go out dressed in light items of clothing.

A young man tried it to work and was sent back home, so he changed and came back to work, this time, wearing his mother's short dress.

20-year-oldJoey Barge's action was so daring and also so funny but it caused the organisation to send their staff a mail, relaxing the dress code to allow the men wear shorts.

Joey from Aylesbury, England works in a call centre. On Monday, he abandoned his suits and arrived at work in a lovely pair of smart shorts. Joey was not sure if his workplace will approve of his dressing because of their strict dress code but he went ahead with it.


At 8.47am on Monday, he shared a picture of his outfit and wrote: "If women can wear skirts/dresses at work can I wear smart shorts like so?"

Less than half an hour later, he had his answer as he was sent home. He tweeted: "Answer: nope. Just been sent home from work."


Joey said: "The office is so hot and I sweat so much and feel uncomfortable.

"I'm fuming. A quarter of the office are wearing vest tops and skirts/dresses..."


Rather than changing into a pair of trousers, Joey took an unusual approach and raided his mum's wardrobe before finding a short dress.



He decided that if women at the office were allowed to wear short dresses and skirts, so would he.


It actually worked in passing his message across and he soon tweeted a photograph of an email he received at work, which read:  "Due to the extremely warm temperatures currently, it has been agreed that... gentlemen in the office are permitted to wear 3/4 length shorts."
