Man sent home for breaching dress code has BEST response

He took revenge on his boss’s unreasonable dress standard.

A man was furious when his boss told him that his outfit was inappropriate for the workplace – despite the sweltering heat outside.

Joey Barge decided to wear shorts to his call centre job in the UK, which is currently in the grips of a heatwave. Considering the extreme weather, and the policy allowing women to wear short skirts, he assumed it wouldn’t be a problem.

He was wrong – and after his employee told him off for his unprofessional outfit, he was told to go home and change.

And change he did! into one of his mother’s dresses which – in fact – did pass the company’s dress code.
