Some companies do allow employees to dress casually at work, but there is, of course, a limitation when it comes to how casual you can be. A Malaysian man recently criticised the HR in his workplace for calling him into the room for disciplinary matters when he came to work with shorts.

The man, who just graduated said that he took up the job that offered him RM3,000 monthly, and revealed that HR told him 2 things – dress casually and NO working OT.

On the first day of his job, the man wore T-shirt and shorts which was above knee length. HR then told him to be serious about his image at work, to which he agreed but felt unhappy.

“Didn’t HR tell me to dress casually?”

A few weeks later, the man was scrolling through YouTube on his phone. He had some spare time as he said, “my boss didn’t really give me much work”.

HR once again called him into the office and spoke about his laziness, to which he disagreed.

“Hello, what am I supposed to do? Do you expect me to ask them 1 by 1 if there’s anything for me to do?”

HR is not the only one that has been grinding his gears, but also lunchtime. He said that he prefers a cafe but most of his colleagues will opt for Kopitiam, and as you may have expected, he’s not a fan of it.

“It’s so hot! And they discuss about work during lunch. Can you guys just shut up?”

He said that he’d just be quiet during lunch and didn’t make it clear to his colleagues about his feelings.

He also complained about how no one leaves work on time, and in an anonymous status shared by the Facebook page 988, he sought help to look for a place with a work-life balance.

There’s something called “dress code”

Netizens, on the other hand, thinks that the man is responsible for what he is going through.

“Dress casually does not mean there is no dress code. The youth nowadays really have a different kind of common sense.”

“You want a work-life balance? Work for yourself, and start your own business. You earn base on your efforts, and you can rest anytime you want.”

“There’s something called “dress code”. It’s up to you about your lunch, but watching YouTube at work is quite overboard. As a newbie, go around and ask what else you can do. It might look like you’re acting, but it’s definitely a bonus.”

“Are you the same girl who prefers cafe to Kopitiam? Welcome back.”

“Bro, it’s not easy to earn a living. The price at the cafe and Kopitiam is significantly different!”

As a newbie, especially if this is your first job, it is critically important to maintain a good perception, and it all depends on how you handle your job, as well as how you mingle around with the people at work.
