Okay so I need somewhere to vent where people will see this so sorry if you don’t want to see it but blagh.
Okay so I have a good friend at college and she’s going through tough times. She gets harassed almost daily, including sexually. Even at college she gets harassed. She lives with an abusive mother and is currently trying to save up to move out and into a safer area. That isn’t what this is about though.
What this is about is the fact that both the branch manager and the state manager at college want to expel her for talking too loudly. That’s right. That exact reason alone could get the entire gaming section, a good 200 students, thrown out. This isn’t just getting too loud or excited when talking, her natural vocal volume is a bit louder than most. So why is it that she’s getting picked on? Well, she makes reports on the harassment, two of which I need to attest to, being an eyewitness, and she knows Vicky, the branch manager, doesn’t particularly care for her and might have made it known around her by accident, someone probably snitched on her considering what other snitches we have lying around that led to other bad times, that she doesn’t really trust her. On top of that, we have a state manager who sees us as dollar signs and numbers and has a really big stick up her ass over every little thing. This woman tried to give someone a written warning over watching a tutorial on YouTube for an assignment. Which the college assessment page itself linked to. Yeah.
I told my dad and he’s just ‘don’t get involved’ and ‘there’s probably other reasons’. No. I know these two bitches. This is what they think is a legit reason. This is the same state manager who tried to give a written warning for watching a college linked tutorial on YouTube and the same branch manager who told my friend basically that the college has a 100% tolerance policy on harassment. Our tutor wasn’t there so she couldn’t have him back her up so she had no choice but to literally escape from college before they could get her into a room.
I don’t know about you guys but this is horrendous bullshit, even by American standards (I live in Australia so usually this stuff doesn’t happen).
