Boss Sends Guy Home For Violating The Male Dress Code, So He Decides To Follow The Female One Instead

Office dress codes have become a hot-button issue in recent years, especially as hot temperatures outside force people into less-than-modest attire. An employee at a call centre in Buckinghamshire, UK, named Joey Barge recently faced up against his company’s code when he was sent home for wearing a smart pair of shorts on a nearly 30-degree summer day. In rebellion, he took a tip from a fellow Twitter user and came back in a dress.

“See you soon, twitter. I’ll be sent home soon,” he posted with a photo of himself sporting the neon-pink and black smock. Surprisingly enough, 20-year-old Joey was allowed to remain at work after changing, undoubtedly benefiting from strict UK laws that prohibit companies from discriminating against employees based on their sexuality or gender identity. His boss must have feared a trend of men turning up to the office ‘dressed up’ in solidarity with Joey, and promptly sent out a memo that the dress code had been temporarily amended – a smashing victory on Joey’s part, though we must admit that his dress looked rather fetching.

Follow the whole story with photos below, and let us know what you think in the comments!

UK temperatures are currently scorching at 30°C and higher, and office workers are feeling it

Call centre employee Joey Barge, 20, decided to test his company’s dress code to stay cool

When it didn’t quite work out, a Twitter user suggested a clever way to bite back…

…And Joey went for it

However, he was allowed to stay, protected by anti-discrimination laws on gender expression

His boss, probably in shock, made some quick adjustments to the dress code after Joey’s stunt

“Ok but this was me sat in my office in a dress,” he wrote on Twitter, flaunting his new style

Internet reactions began pouring in, with some praising him and his “nice legs”…

…And others taking issue with his “big baby” attitude, as well as the dress itself

What do you think? Was Joey’s solution extra or unprofessional? Tell us in the comments below!

It's not like his balls are hanging out in those shorts. Should we really be burning fossil fuels to cool an office to the point where we are all wearing sweaters just because we are afraid of seeing a man's knees? Plenty of dress codes state dresses, skirts and shorts be no more than a few inches above the knee. Seems like he complies with that in both outfits.

That lady who was in the military in Iraq - We get it, you suffered more. Just because there are worse things doesn't mean that the guy doesn't have the right to be comfortable. There's a reason I didn't join the military: all the wars are in hot places now. Also I'm incredibly short so they wouldn't let me in anyway.

I worked in an office prior to retirement. When it got hot outside women wore skirts and dresses to keep cool. Why can't men wear something equally as cooling? Especially in an office that doesn't deal with the public on a visual basis.

To all of the babyish, immature people shaming a man for wearing a dress, it takes bravery to embarrass yourself in public just to change a rule a bit. It's hot this season, and it's uncomfortable to have warming clothing when it's hot. Have a heart, have a brain, and have sympathy.

I worked in an office (windows all around) where in the summer, the folks in the north end were wearing sweaters, but we at the south end saw the thermostat climb to 88 degrees. The director told ppl 'get comfortable, folks, til they get the a/c fixed'. Us girls were in sundresses, sandals. The guys wore khaki shorts and sandals. My manager's office (far from windows and with a door) was frigid. He wore flannels and a hoodie to work! Lol

The critics are wholly misguided. They call him a baby for not tolerating the hot weather, but that's not why he did it. He did because the policy allows *women* to wear summer dresses to stay cool, but what do they allow the men to do? Nothing, they just have to suck it up and be miserable. Not a single critic addressed why they favor the double standard.

This isnt as much about heat as what is appropriate. The director of my department had been undergoing serious medical issues. He limped in his dress shoes. One day I was sitting in his office and the subject of his foot discomfort came up. I asked him what shoes didn't hurt. He said, 'my sandals, but I can't wear them to work!' I asked why not. He said, 'b/c I'm the director!' I told him I didn't see a problem. The next day he was in sandals (but with socks, of course). He wasn't limping.

In my country women must wear bras and high heels too, I don't see him sporting any of that. I think it's cute what he did, but don't go over the top with it. In many businesses here, girls who greet customers aren't even allowed to sit down, for more than 8 hours shift, even when they have their period. Wearing high heels, bras, mini skirts and tight shirts. He didn't invent the cure for sexual discrimination. He made a point, and that's as far as it goes.

How hot is it in the call center? Isn't it indoors with AC? My office is always freezing - especially in the summer when it's cranked up to high. Summertime is sweater time for me. On a side note, at least the ladies' dress code didn't require pantyhose.

If you’re a good employee it shouldn’t matter what you wear. If your “girls” and southern fun parts are covered it shouldn’t be an issue. Strict dress codes are a way to control. To anyone calling him a big baby and that he should just suffer and sweat his butt of, why? I respect your choice to settle and conform. That doesn’t mean the rest of us have to. Let’s not overlook the important fact that he won. He can wear shorts to work. Let’s not overlook the fact that he shouldn’t have had to jump through hoops just to do that.

It also matters if your location is on the west side of the building or near windows. Even if the thermostat reads 72* in the central area, the afternoon sun and solar heat through glass can raise temps by 10 or more degrees. I've used A/C on cool days because direct sunlight was unbearably hot.

It is normal for even uniformed employees to have shorts as a part of the uniform, i.e. mail carriers in summer and policemen on bikes. Plus, he raised awareness about the issues that stem from seeking equality in the workplace. I'm sure a pink dress is find for a women but the men still cannot wear salmon colored shorts with a nice polo. I have natural hair so I often wonder if this is a battle I will someday have to fight. I'm not an activist by any means but I'm passionate about my hair and religious freedom.

I fully support Joey for daring the system when it is close to a torture. Being in long trousers in 30 C is not very humane and definitely rules needed to change. If his employer wanted to keep the dress code, there should be appropriate working conditions.

Way to go buddy. Using a loop hole in policy designed to support against discriminating employees based on their sexuality or gender identity so you could wear what ever you wanted. Nothing feels better then growing up with a sense of entitlement. I'm sure you knew about the code before you were hired to boot. I have a great idea next time your you go to the airport you should roll in a wheel chair so you can board first.

As a fellow chef, you obviously don't know the reason why you wore that attire. You wear it because when grease splatters, boiling water sloshes, or a hot sheet out of the oven tilts, you can get seriously burned if you're not protected. He works in a call center - and I've worked in several prior to restaurant work. They cram as many employees in as they can, your cubicle is only slightly wider than you are, and that air conditioning doesn't cut it in the slightest.

How is that fair? Women want to be equals, the dress code does not have them wearing soley trousers so I say good for him, the length of the garment should matter and not the type or whether the person wearing it has a nut sack or not.

That lady who was in the military in Iraq - We get it, you suffered more. Just because there are worse things doesn't mean that the guy doesn't have the right to be comfortable. There's a reason I didn't join the military: all the wars are in hot places now. Also I'm incredibly short so they wouldn't let me in anyway.

My coworker and I were just talking about how it's kinda unfair that we women can have sandals that make us look practically barefoot, but the men still have to wear their regular shoes in the summer.

Yeah, but guys' shoes are quite often better designed.

It's ridiculous the people calling him a big baby. You'd swear the highest minds made these rules, so they follow like sheep.

I worked in an office prior to retirement. When it got hot outside women wore skirts and dresses to keep cool. Why can't men wear something equally as cooling? Especially in an office that doesn't deal with the public on a visual basis.
