Pass the lipstick, please


According to a news report, a certain private school in Washington, D.C. 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 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 had been to clean the mirrors, she asked the maintenance man to show the girls how much effort was required. He took out along-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…




(My aunt sent me this. It was too good to pass up!!)

I bet they won't be doing much "ass-kissing" in life either. Good lesson all around.

Was that before or after he cleaned the toilets?

That is the way, explain it to them in a way that they can understand. Does it work on husbands too?

Brian Miller said...

i feel bad for any boys they have been kissing...
what am i saying they are 12...they should not be kissing boys yet...
maybe if they showed where the boys lips had been as well...

Maybe a toilet water floor scrubbing demonstration will teach the males in this house to pick up their dirty clothes?

The Empress said...

OMG, I hope to be that brilliant in my next life.

Mellodee said...

Kids usually aren't really stupid, they just need a little boost from time to time to remind them that grown-ups are still smarter than they are and just might actually know something!! "Beyond brilliant" is absolutely spot on!!
