If you have no date, forget about prom. This is the case with a teen who was banned from her prom due to not having a date. 17 teen year old Amanda Dougherty spent nearly 1,000 on the event, from her prom dress to her tickets. When her date decided not to go, she was left to go by herself and eventually told that she could not attend. To add insult to injury the teen was then told that if she really wanted to go , she could bring her father or another male relative...*super side eye*
According to Madamenoire a commentor pointed out that,
“Prom is an occasion where a date is required. If everyone started coming without a date, it would just be a dress up school dance. It’s a learning experience too – how to go about socializing with a partner. If everyone stood around without a date, then it would not be ‘prom like,’
“Kids need to learn that there are social norms and rules that should be followed, this is why our kids think that they should be able to do anything they want. It does not cut it in the real world, they get fired and cannot understand why…..even though they fought the companies rules.”
I swear people have it twisted and as MN pointed out if Amanda brought her father, would that not then make it a father-daughter dance? #fail!
What's your thoughts on this?
