Lipstick in School...this is great!   (You've got to love this principal)

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 had begun 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 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
The   yawns from the little princesses). To demonstrate how difficult it was 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!!! 



Thought you would enjoy. Made me laugh!!

This is funny, but this story was going around when I was in middle school!  Certainly not new, and certainly not true!
