UK postman Adam Williamson got suspended from his job at the Royal Mail and was even escorted home by the police because he showed up at work wearing non-regulation shorts:
When postman Adam Williamson found he could no longer squeeze into his standard issue Royal Mail trousers, he turned up at work in shorts.
But the solution didn't go down well with bosses, who suspended him and had him escorted from the sorting depot by police.
Mr Williamson says he has fallen foul of rules because the navy blue shorts have a Nike logo. But he claims they are virtually identical to ill-fitting ones supplied by his employers and he has used them on rounds during the summer for several years.
Depot chiefs are refusing to back down until he finds a non-branded pair of shorts that fit, however.
The dispute got heated and other postal workers threatened to walk off the job in protest of management's treatment: Link
