Lipstick in School
According to a news report, a certain private school in Newcastle upon Tyne
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 toilets.
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 caretaker would remove them and the next day
the girls would put them back.
Finally the Headmistress decided that something had to be done.
She called all the girls to the toilets with the caretaker.
She explained that all these lip prints were causing a major problem
for the caretaker who had to clean the mirrors every night
(you can just imagine the yawns from the little Geordie Princesses).
To demonstrate how difficult it had been to clean the mirrors,
she asked the caretaker 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.
there have been no lip prints on the mirror.
There are teachers............
and then there are educators.
