Mirror,Mirror on the Wall

I thought you might like to read a email I got the other day from my friend....I don't know for sure if it is a true story or not but it sure made me say HA!

> Lipstick in School
> According to a news report, a certain private school in Washington 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 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
> (you can just imagine the yawns from the little princesses).
> 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.

lol! At my school 2 girls got hepatitis from one other girl for doing this on the locker room mirror. It was disgusting, and a girl from my class was expelled for kissing the mirror after it was forbidden. The mop trick would have worked wonders!

That is so funny! When you are a kid, you never think about how dirty everything can be around you. Ick.
