Man sent home from work for wearing shorts, comes back in a dress


Office dress codes can be hard to decipher sometimes. So when call centre worker Joey Barge was sent home from work to change into appropriate office wear, he had the perfect response.

The 20-year-old reached out to the Twitter community with his first choice clothing.

He asked if he could wear smart shorts to work as women are allowed to wear skirts and dressed. He then updated Twitter with the answer. No, they can't. He was sent home.

Barge then posted images of what he changed into. He changed into a dress as a protest of his company's "sexist" dress code.

Barge wrote: "I got sent home and told to change into appropriate clothing but it said females could wear dresses so hey ho!"

In response to the protest, Joey's company appears to have modified its dress code, and now allows men to wear three quarter length shorts - only in the colors black, beige, or navy which Joey described as a "partial win".
