A Hair-Raising Tale of Friendship and Misunderstandings 🎭

In a twist of expectations, our friend finds themselves in a dilemma when Stella, their hairstylist friend, asks for a recommendation for a high-level scientist position. Despite explaining the complexities of the role and the required qualifications, Stella remains undeterred, convinced her hairstyling background equips her with a 'full' understanding of chemistry. Our friend, however, stands firm, refusing to risk their professional reputation. Now, Stella accuses them of disrespect and being an a**. A classic case of mismatched expectations and a friendship caught in the crossfire. Let's delve into the world's reactions to this tangled situation... 🌍🔥

"NTA. Does she know what a PHD is? And what one does to obtain a PhD? I love to bake so, like your hairdresser I have some 'experience' with chemistry. And I tend to think with enough practice and training I can do just about anything. But I am also aware enough to understand I am not a viable candidate for any job that lists as a requirement a PhD in any subject. NTA. But get a new hairdresser." - Engaging comment and a sassy reply! 😍

Her degree of Dunning-Kruger self-delusion is boggling. If she persists in whining about it, I think it's time to cut her out of your life."
