So this is cute. It is beyond me, though, why I am nominated for Ms Rampadora. I do NOT loitter around the operations floor, okay. It just so happens that my supervisor sits away from our team :P
It Gets More Absurd! Miriam College (ya know, my college) has always been strict with its dress code;Ã‚Â I mean, two out of the three minor violations (that eventually led to my having a major violation) I’ve had in all my four years in college wereÃ‚Â caused by my going to school in ‘improper attire’.
It’s a Catholic institution. Common sense dictates no miniskirts, no rubber flipflops, no backless or halter tops, no tank tops with straps less than an inch etc etc. Once, even girls in black bras were randomly reprimanded by the dean of student affairs.
Ever sinceÃ‚Â my major violation, I’ve made it a point to followÃ‚Â college rules and regulations. Thank god for sequined non-rubber flipflops. So anyway, last Wednesday, I went to school to finally enroll my ass. I was wearing rubber platform flipflops, having come from work.
Lady guard: You’re wearing rubber slippers.
Helga: (Like I don’t know?) I’M JUST ENROLLING!!! (Jesus!)
I had to go back yesterday to pay for my tuition. I passed by the guards, waving a yellow form and my registration formÃ‚Â under their noses. I had successfuly made it past the gates when one of them went:
“Miss, your earrings are too long.
Kindly Take them off.”
Clem: HAHAHAHA, BEEEECAUSE WE’RE CATHOLIC SKEWL GRLZZZ.
See. I don’t get it. Why are dangling/chandelier earrings deemed improper by our school now? Do dangling earrings demoralize women? Do we stoop to prostitute-levels because we’re not wearing boring plain studs? AND WHO THE FUCK THOUGHT THIS UP?
Technically, earrings aren’t part of the Miriam uniform so I *kinda* get THEIR point. BUT!Ã‚Â I WASN’T IN UNIFORM YESTERDAYÃ‚Â (and won’t ever need to be, since I only have Saturday classes) SO LAY OFF MY PRECIOUS EARRINGS, PLEASE.
