London receptionist Nicole Thorpe claims that she was sent home on the first day of her job this past December because she committed a huge no-no: wearing flats. Thorpe refused to comply with reception firm PwC's dress code that instructs female receptionists to be uncomfortable all day by wearing shoes that have two to four inch heels. 

Unrepentant flat-wearer.

When Thorpe argued that her male coworker was not required to do the same, she was apparently laughed at. A boy wearing heels?! Now they've heard everything!
