I don’t think I’ve ever been to a restaurant that enforces a dress code, but let’s be honest…I’m not the classiest guy in the world…

So I’m not sure what I’d do in the situation you’re going to read about…

But she took a stand and now she wants to know if she acted like an *******.

Check out what she had to say.

AITA for not going home and changing my shoes for a restaurant’s dress code?

“I (F29) was recently invited to a work dinner, as one of my colleagues is retiring.

It was being held at a little barbecue restaurant in town.

I was told that the dress code was “smart casual”.

She thought she was dressed appropriately.

For context, I wore a nice skirt and button-up, and a pair of crocs.

I live in a hot climate and lots of people such as myself wear sandals/crocs/flip flops everywhere.

When we got to the restaurant, it turned out they had a dress code, and the hostess loudly told me I couldn’t come in wearing crocs. It was extremely embarrassing in front of my coworkers.

I don’t really understand the problem because there were people wearing sneakers, converse, etc, and that’s fine but crocs aren’t?

It wasn’t even a fancy restaurant so I really wasn’t expecting this.

See ya later!

Anyway, one of my coworkers urged me to go home and change my shoes and come back.

I was so distraught I ended up just going home and not coming back.

I suffer with anxiety and the whole experience just made me meltdown.

My coworkers are now collectively angry at me for leaving and not coming back.

My boss told me the event wasn’t about me and I should’ve sucked it up.

Was I an ******* for leaving?”

Check out how people reacted on Reddit.

One individual thinks she was wrong on this one.
