Lipstick Lesson

February 5th, 2014

lipstickA private school was 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 to the mirror leaving dozens of little lip prints. Every night, the cleaner 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 cleaner. She explained that all these lip prints were causing a major problem for the cleaner who had to clean the mirrors every night. To demonstrate how difficult it had been to clean the mirrors, she asked the cleaner 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 sages!
