Lipstick in School (Priceless!)

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

Every night the maintenance man would remove them, and the next day thegirls would put them back.

Finally the principal decided that something had to be done. She calledall 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 forthe custodian who had to clean the mirrors every night (you can justimagine the yawns from the little princesses).

To demonstrate how difficult it had been to clean the mirrors, she askedthe maintenance man to show the girls how much effort was required.

He took out a long-handled squeegee, dipped it in the toilet, and cleanedthe mirror with it. Since then, there have been no lip prints on themirror.
There are teachers ... and then there are educators
