I got this in my email this morning. True or not, it makes a good point.
Lipstick in school (You've got to love this principal) Acording to a news report, a certain private school in Washington was recently faced with a unique [problem. The 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 mirror every night (you can imagine the yawns from the little pricesses).
To explain 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 sqeegee, dipped in it 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 apologize for the first edition that was so hard to read.
