A man who was sent home from work for wearing shorts returned to his office wearing his mum’s dress.
20-year-old Joey Barge, from Aylesbury in Buckinghamshire had enough of wearing suits to the call centre so he decided to wear some navy blue shorts, but before getting to work he questioned his decision by posting a picture on Twitter. He wrote: “If women can wear skirts/dresses at work can I wear smart shows like so? (sic)”

Within half an hour of posting the picture, Joey was sent home to get changed but rather than changing into a suit he donned his mum’s best gown as women were allowed to wear them. Posting a picture of him wearing the dress he thought he would be sent home again however his planned worked. He later tweeted an email he received saying: “Due to the extremely warm temperatures currently, it has been agreed that … gentlemen in the office are permitted to wear 3/4 length shorts.”
