Lipstick in school

According to a news report, a certain school in England 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 Headmistress 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.

There are teachers......and then there are educators.

here endeth the lesson!


  1. I sort of wish 12 year old girls didn't feel the need to wear lipstick though. I seem to remember that our school had a "no make up" policy up to sixth form (not that we obeyed it.)Have to say that the amount of foundation and mascara some young girls cake themselves in takes me aback. So unnecessary with such fresh young skins as well!

  2. I just found this blog and have high hopes for it to continue. Keep up the great work, its hard to find good ones. I have added to my favorites. Thank You.
