The recent stories of seemingly petty dress code violations, especially directed at teen girls, have another to add to their collection. A student in South Ogden, Utah, was forced to change her Marilyn Monroe sweatshirt due to a revealed shoulder. The ridiculous part? The student wasn't showing a shoulder, but Marilyn was.

That's right. Her shirt's shirt was violating dress code.

Last week, the student, who attends South Ogden Junior High, was given a dress code violation and forced to change clothes. Confused because her outfit appeared to be in line with the code, the student's mother, Katie Fabert, went to talk with the vice principal who issued the citation.

The vice principal said that because Marilyn wasn't in code, the outfit wasn't in code. Fabert also said the vice principal got in her daughter's face, nearly making the young girl cry.

This didn't sit right with many people.

Fabert eventually received a phone call from the principal conceding the violation was not legitimate. That said, the mother is not happy with how this was handled.

It seems it was too little, too late.

Fabert was quoted as saying,

"This whole thing just got out of hand. It was a sweater, and they made it something … and she felt bad."

While the principal has promised to review the guidelines with the teachers, and the district has issued a statement saying they will work closely with the family to resolve the matter, Fabert is upset that this happened in the first place.

"Instead of enforcing what is actually dress code, these teachers are coming in and bringing their own opinion."

People Divulge Which Instances Of The Mandela Effect Freaked Them Out The Most

Its name stems from when paranormal researcher Fiona Broome falsely believed that the future president of South Africa, Nelson Mandela, died in prison in the 1980s.

A false memory she shared with a number of others.

Our memories have been known to deceive us, as we might frequently forget someone's name or one of our numerous online passwords.

But when we share a memory that turns out to be false with many others, convincing ourselves it wasn't the truth can be a very difficult ordeal indeed.

The food world is their oyster.

Oyster. Also an option.

The menu is endless...

People Break Down The Exact Moment They Realized Their Friends Were A-Holes

Most people have friends they've been close to for most of their lives.

But at the same time, friends evolve, and everyone finds themselves losing touch with any number of people they at one point considered their friends over time.

Most of the time, this isn't intentional, but just simply happens.

On rare occasions though, people might realize that their friends were not exactly who they thought they were, and didn't like who they revealed themselves to be.
