LIPSTICK ON THE MIRRORS
to a radio report, a middle school in Oregon was faced with
a unique problem. A number of girls were beginning to use
lipstick and would put it on in the restroom. That was fine,
but after they put on their lipstick, they would press their
lips to the mirror leaving dozens of little lip prints.
Finally the principal decided that something had to be
done. She called all of the girls to the restroom 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 was to clean
the mirrors, she asked the maintenance guy to clean one
of them. He took a long handled squeegee, dipped it into
the toilet and then cleaned the mirror.
Since then, there have been no lip prints on the mirrors.
