According to a news report, a certain
private school in Washington recently was 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.
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 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.
