Subject: The Lips in the Mirror

According to a news report, a certain private school in Victoria recently
was faced with a unique problem. A number of 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

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.

To demonstrate how difficult it was to clean the mirrors, she asked the
maintenance man to clean the mirrors.

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.
