British Guy Sent Home For Wearing Shorts, Comes Back Wearing A Pink Dress


Scorching days have come, and ice creams are not enough to get the day going. Especially on a Monday morning. Imagine you want to wear shorts to work, because, obviously, it’s too hot, but you’re not allowed. Joey Barge, 20, decided to wear a pair of shorts this Monday, June 19, but was instead sent home because of the inappropriate outfit. Can you guess what he did? Not even after hundred guesses. He came back wearing a DRESS! And he became a great internet hero.

20-year-old Joey Barge, from Buckinghamshire, works in a call centre. As the scorching heatwave already came after last weekend, he decided it was time to protest his company’s dress code.


He went to his car early Monday morning, June 19, and took a picture of himself with his pair of blue shorts. He posted it on Twitter and went on only to be sent back home. Because of his shorts. It was supposedly inappropriate and he needed to change.

Rather than conforming to the situation and his boss, Joey decided to do something else instead. He was obviously angry, but also annoyed that his female colleagues could wear both skirts and dresses. So he did the same thing. He came back at work in a lovely pink dress.

He explained:

“I got sent home and told to change into appropriate clothing but it said females could wear dresses so hey ho!”

Joey shared his interesting wardrobe choice on Twitter and the picture quickly went viral.

His Twitter followers soon reacted with thrill, calling him a hero. One wrote: ‘Men should always be allowed to wear shorts like women can wear skirts and dresses’ while another said his outfit was ‘smart’.

Next, his boss sent out an email informing the men that they could actually wear three-quarter length shorts in ‘black, navy or beige only’.

But that didn’t stop Joey from wearing the dress all day at work. In fact, he refused to go home and change. And, let’s be honest, he is rocking it!
