Lipstick on the Mirror

A principal of a small middle school in Beaverton, Oregon had a problem
with a few of the older girls starting to use lipstick. When applying
it in the bathroom they would then press their lips to the mirror and
leave lip prints.

Before it got out of hand he thought of a way to stop it. He gathered
all the girls together that wore lipstick and told them he wanted to
meet with them in the ladies room at 2pm. They gathered at 2pm and
found the principal and the school custodian waiting for them.

The principal explained that it was becoming a problem for the
custodian to clean the mirror every night. He said he felt the ladies
did not fully understand just how much of a problem it was and he
wanted them to witness just how hard it was to clean. The custodian
then demonstrated. He took a long brush on a handle out of a box. He
then dipped the brush in the nearest toilet, moved to the mirror and
proceeded to remove the lipstick.

That was the last day the girls pressed their lips on the mirror.
