Hair school issues

this has turned into a ranting blog omg but w/e

So today was a batcrap crazy day. Legit it was nuts. I spent most of the day just doing practical sheets for my GPA, and around noonish the front desk managers requests my help up front taking calls and such. No big deal, they trained us on it, and I actually enjoy doing such.

So tomorrow here in Arizona, the ALS Association is having a fund raiser that involves a 3 mile walk, including booths of food, water, a few games, etc etc. One of our students there is a mother of 3 and has a son with ALS (Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis), or, Lou Gherig's disease, and is a rep of the association, and she asked for some of our students and faculty to participate. Students and faculty who are participating will receive hours according to how long they are at the walk. Students were also required to schedule themselves out for tomorrow a week in advance (the announcement was made over a month go).

Tomorrow we have already had around 6-7 student stylists blocked off for the event so that they will not get clients and be forced to come in. The front desk manager asks me around 1 PM if I could make an announcement saying, "Attention all students, if you did not request tomorrow off for the ALS walk, we hope to see you tomorrow morning at 8 o'clock, thank you!"
Within seconds around ten students come up front asking if they can have tomorrow off. Ten. Fricking ten. Four of which are 30+ years of age. Each of them trying to pass off their clients to other people, which normally wouldn't be a problem, if it weren't for literally every client scheduled for tomorrow didn't already have at least 3 clients. Quite fricking literally every damn stylist has 2-3 clients tomorrow. Every last one (barring those who planned in advance).

So these people insist on us trying to move their appointments, and we finally made the decision to tell them, "If you do not show up tomorrow, we don't care if you went to the walk or not, you are not getting your hours nor your grades, and the people who requested you specifically will be placed with someone else." Keep in mind it is the amount of hours we rack up that decides when we graduate, so that's a huge deal to us.

I think I am more amazed at the fact that the 30+ year old, fully grown adults are around ten times more irresponsible than the student stylists who are 10+ years younger than they are. It literally quite makes me speechless.
