DEAR MISS MANNERS: I was at a social event, and a dance teacher I have taken a few classes with was also attending as a guest.

She came over to say hi to the woman sitting next to me, and gave her a big hug.

As the teacher turned away from her friend, her head and body were pointed towards me, less than 4 feet away.

I said, “Hi, Delia.”

She looked through me and walked away. I know for a fact that the teacher knows my name and face.

I believe this is called a cut. I have done it to someone myself, once in my life.

Now, I know why Delia is mad at me: A couple of years ago, I spoke out of turn in her class, uttering a single, ordinary word that was interpreted (probably correctly) as critical of her teaching. When I returned to her class on a later date, she allowed me to attend (after telling me off) and encouraged me to participate, so I thought we were OK.

Apparently not.

So, what is the correct response? Should I refrain from saying hi in the future? Keep saying hi to see what happens? Avoid her classes? (I think I will have to, as that was just too awful.)

Also, I should not discuss this with anyone who knows her, right?

GENTLE READER: Perhaps she missed it, but Miss Manners sees no mention of an actual apology anywhere in the above exchange. She suspects that Delia similarly missed it. If you do not think she is a good teacher, then do not attend her classes. But if you choose to, you must be respectful.

To repair the current situation, you might say, “I thought we had resolved the unpleasantness from before, but I do not think I ever properly apologized. I am sorry that I was disrespectful in your class and I hope that you can forgive me.”

And then please refrain from any more single, ordinary and/or offensive words in the future, unless your plan is to be cut again — socially or permanently from the class.

DEAR MISS MANNERS: A friend has a dreadful habit of always mentioning, as an aside, how wealthy — or strapped — someone is when their name comes up in conversation. Some of these people I know, some I do not.

I wish I had addressed this habit when she was still merely an acquaintance, but it’s only now that we often speak on the phone that it is glaringly obvious to me.

I would really like a good response other than my silence or changing the subject, which has had no effect. Perhaps something gentler than my inclination to blurt, “You know, that’s rude.”

GENTLE READER: “How fortunate you are to have friends so close that they even share their financial information. I am shy about such things and would never talk about it to anyone except my accountant.”

If you are feeling bold, Miss Manners will allow adding, “… for fear of its being passed along.”

I got my brows microbladed at a salon I saw on Instagram – they were awful and took years to fade then looked even WORSE

A WOMAN has warned all beauty lovers to watch her video after a microblading appointment went horribly wrong.

Over the years, microblading has become all the rage - it gives a more fuller and defined-looking brow.

But despite its high popularity, one woman was not so happy with the outcome and took it social media to share her journey.

In a TikTok clip, which has racked up more than 51,000 views in just a day, Hannah Chan (@thehannahchan) said: ''If you ever consider getting your eyebrows microbladed, watch this video.''

According to the woman, who has more than 22,000 fans on her social media page, she got her brows done three years ago.

''Straight of the bat, they were already too dark.''

Hannah then explained in the comments that she was told multiple times that the brows would fade completely in 12 months time.

However, much to her surprise, it never happened and her eyebrows were still very dark.

She proceeded to message them: ''I was wondering though, are they permanent or will they wear off?

''Because since I dyed my hair blond, they are a little to stand out ish [sic].''

The person who responded Hannah reassured the beauty lover yet again that there was no reason to worry - the colour would ''gradually fade''.

Three years later the microbladed eyebrows did fade - but unfortunately, they now had an ''ugly green-black'' tint.

Unhappy with how her eyebrows were looking, Hannah made the decision to get them removed by a professional.

''I finally went to my first laser tattoo removal session,'' the woman said whilst showing off her bare face.

And although the dark tint was now almost gone, Hannah's brows were left with a bright orange pigment by the bottom - which the tattoo whizz promised to get rid of in a follow-up appointment.

''If you're getting your eyebrows microbladed just consider the fact that there's a chance they might not come off and you might have ti get them removed.

''I’ve learnt to ask them for pictures of long-term results, everything looks good when fresh!''

Mortified, some viewers took it to comments to share their thoughts, with many thanking Hannah for the video.

''I don’t think I can do anything permanent or semi-permanent because I’m too scared of stories like this…[shocked emoji],'' read one of the top comments.

Someone else shared their horror story: ''got mine done in 2017, theyve faded to a light brown/pinkish blur so it looks like I filled them in with eye shadow, not hair strokes [sic].''

''I had mine 15 years, they’ve faded red! Regret doing them as it’s not semi permanent as advertised,'' another unfortunate beauty lover joined the conversation.
