Man Follows Female Dress Code At Work To Make An Important Point About Sexism

By Mustafa Gatollari

Dress codes are not only the bane of students everywhere, but for adults who have to go adulting into the grown-up world of business, too. No matter how hot or uncomfortable it may be outside, you're still expected to wear "professional" attire when you come to work, and if you're a man that means pants and a dress-shirt or polo.  

Trouble is, sometimes it's too hot for that, especially during a summer heat wave. So 20-year-old Joey Barge from Buckinghamshire, UK, decided he'd rock a pair of shorts while at work, something that landed him in trouble with his superiors.

Which forced him to pose a very practical question to Twitter, along with a photo of him wearing shorts yet again.
