Fella Gets Sent Home From Work For Wearing Shorts, So Comes Back In A Dress

Fella Gets Sent Home From Work For Wearing Shorts, So Comes Back In A Dress

As the UK basks in what is officially the hottest April day since 1949, your thought might be turning to how to keep cool.

Being hot is all well and good while you're on holiday and you can knock back beers and eat Lays on the beach all day, but when you've got to haul your arse into work every day it can feel less fun, especially if your place of work happens to have a strict dress code like many offices do.

But one guy thought he found a sneaky way around that.

Last June, when us Brits were struggling through a similar surge in temperatures, Joey Barge, who was working in a call centre, decided to head into the office wearing a pair of smart, navy-blue shorts. He still looks sound for the office and he hasn't got to sweat his bollocks off - a win/win.

But, actually, it was a problem and poor Joey got sent home to change.

At this point, it dawned on him that there might be a little loop-hole: if his female co-workers can put on dresses and skirts, then why couldn't he? Which, to me, seem to be a very fair point and he'd certainly be cooler.

So, he dug out a dress and decided to rock up to the office for the second time that day dressed like this:

Looking good, I reckon, and it's definitely smart enough for work.

Although, it seems that even before he left for work, he had his reservations about whether his plan would work.

And he was right, because he did get sent home. Scandalous that, isn't it?

But, here's the important bit, his little act of defiance did manage to get the rules changed and his work place will now allow shorts for the workers:

So now, thanks to Joey heroic actions last June, the good people of wherever the Hell he worked can be sitting in work in their shorts right now. Never let anyone tell you that one person can't make difference
