'The horror, the horror'

The TUC has, very perceptively, noticed that it is quite hot at the moment, and therefore has decided to offer up some pearls of wisdom:

With a heatwave warning in place this week for parts of the UK, and temperatures predicted to soar as high as 32oC, the TUC is today (Wednesday) calling on employers to relax office dress codes and cool down their overheating offices and their wilting employees.

By allowing staff to loosen their ties and leave their jackets at home, the TUC is hoping most employers will adopt a more relaxed approach to office attire.

Reasonable enough, I suppose, although I expect even the dimmest managers have probably stumbled upon those notions. However, no pudding can be left under-egged when it comes to these people:

Bosses should only stop staff from wearing shorts to work if they have first carried out a proper risk assessment, and only people whose jobs could prove hazardous should still be made to work in long trousers.

Readers in offices or wherever are encouraged to look at their colleagues and imagine the unmitigated horror of some of them sporting shorts. Horrified yet?

We have a "policy" introduced some years ago that says that we may wear appropriate shorts if the temperature hits 30 degrees. On the day of implementation the younger male employees wore shorts to take advantage of our new-found freedoms. We were all so utterly embarrassed that we did not do it again.
