Joey Barge, 20, from Buckinghamshire, was sent home for wearing shorts to work during a major heatwave and came back wearing a pink ad black T-shirt dress as a 'protest' against the dress code. He posted on Twitter asking his followers: 'If women can wear skirts/dresses at work can I wear smart shorts like so?' Assuming that he'd be sent home yet again, Joey posts a selfie of himself in the dress to twitter, getting dozens of likes and retweets. His act of ‘Taking on the man’ led to a change in the rules - with bosses sending out a mass email stating 'gentlemen in the office' to wear three-quarter length shorts in 'black, navy or beige only'.


How did you take on the man?
