From GM's Corner, via Shrinkwrapped:

According to a news report, a certain school in Garden City, MI 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 washroom. 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. He called all the girls to the washroom and met them there with the maintenance man. He explained that all these lip prints were causing a major problem for the custodian who had to clean the mirrors every night.

To demonstrate how difficult it had been to clean the mirrors, he 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.

Love this.

lol. Reminds me of a factory where I worked 30 years ago where some of the women working in the office used to wear white lab coats like the scientists in the lab. The office manager stopped the practice by putting up a notiice saying that although lab coats weren't banned, they were only allowed in special circumstances e.g. pregnancy.
