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 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
themaintenance man to show the girls how much effort was required.
He tookout a long-handled squeegee, dipped it in a toilet, then proceeded to clean the mirror with it. Since then, there have been
no lip prints on the mirror.
