A woman has lost her mind after she was told she couldn’t work as a female divers instructor because she was too big for a uniform.
Sarah O’Reilly, who has worked as a divers instructor at Sydney’s Darling Harbour, told the ABC she was “terrified” when she was given a short order at a Sydney dive school.
“I went in there and asked the assistant to sign a waiver saying I couldn’t wear a suit and tie,” Ms O’Brien told the news channel.
“They said I couldn, and they put me in the back of the queue, and I’m in the front.”
I’ve had quite a few times since I’ve been here.
It’s quite hard to put up with.
“It’s not like it’s a big deal. “
We’ve been told to change the braids,” she said.
“It’s not like it’s a big deal.
If you wear no braids, then there’s no uniform.””
If you wear a braided ponytail, then you’re in the uniform.
If you wear no braids, then there’s no uniform.”
It’s a bit scary.
“There are a lot of people who wear the same thing. “
I don’t know why, but it’s not right,” she told the TV show.
“Then you wear something else. “
And then you wear nothing.” “
Then you wear something else.
And then you wear nothing.”
Ms McInnes said she had received numerous complaints from customers who were unhappy with her outfit.
“The customer service team have really taken it very seriously and they’re making sure we get the right answer,” she wrote on Facebook.
“This has been going on for quite a while and I am genuinely upset that we are having to take action on a small complaint.”
She said she would be writing to the employer, saying she was not happy with her experience.
“Unfortunately, my manager has also said that the staff were told that I could not wear a full suit and I couldn�t wear a bow tie,” she added.
“She has told me that the reason they don’t allow women to wear suits is because they are too big and they don�t want to offend the women who work for them.”
The ABC contacted the Darling Harbour Dive School, which did not respond to a request for comment.
A spokesman said the school had received an email from the head of the school’s safety team, confirming that Ms O�Reilly had been told she could not work.
