Beauty School Bully
I am a cosmetology student in an adult program. Heck, I'm almost 30 years old! My story starts with a client. A women in my class had a regular client. One day she was absent and I worked on the client... After that, the client decided to stay with me. She always requested me. The original student who worked on this client, we'll call her Denise, was angry about this. From that moment on Denise has spread terrible rumors about me and continues to go out of her way to make my life miserable.
She now erases my clients from the appointment books. Denise is very sneaky and tricks people into thinking she is innocent. One day I went into the parking lot and discovered someone had written an obcenity on my car with eyeliner. A few weeks ago she claimed that someone stole her blue nail file. She marched around like a child and insisted on going through everyone's things. I happen to own a blue nail file (which she saw me using earlier that day on a client). Even though mine did not match the description she had given everyone for the missing file, she insinuated that I had stolen hers. Now her little groupies treat me like a theif.
School is very stressful and there is a lot of tension, gossip, and dirty looks. I can't believe this is happening to me as an adult. This week Denise has moved on and is now targeting a different classmate. The school will do nothing about this.
