Lipstick in School

According to a news report, a certain private school in
Washington was recently faced with a unique problem. A
number of 12-year-old girls were beginning to use lipstick
and would put it on in the bathroom. That was fine, but
after they put on their lipstick, they would press their
lips on the mirror leaving dozens of little lip prints.

Every night the maintenance man would remove them, and
the next day the girls would put them back. Finally the
principal decided that something had to be done.

She called all the girls to the bathroom and met them
there with the maintenance man. She explained that all these
lip prints were causing a major problem for the custodian
who had to clean the mirrors every night (you can just
imagine all the yawns from the little princesses).

To demonstrate how difficult it had been to clean the
mirrors, she asked the maintenance man to show the girls how
much effort was required. He took out a long-handled
squeegee, dipped it in the toilet, and cleaned the mirror
with it.

Since then, there have been no lip prints on the mirror.

There are teachers ... and then there are educators.

I was so hoping he was going to put on the lipstick.
