  Lipstick in School  
     
 
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 wash room. 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.
