Hope you have a strong stomach!

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

Yes there's certainly a message here about how to deal with children.

You're an early riser if that time is correct!

Been very busy lately so I'm playing catch up on my favorite blogs. Love the lipstick story and the photo of fat David is simply a hoot! LOL

Serves them right!

I know the girl's bathrooms were a genuine mess at the school in Greene County when I taught there. You can imagine what was laying around.

Dear Patty ~~ Great joke, and a good way to stop the little dears. Thanks for your visit and I am glad you liked the poem "Slow Dance" and the jokes. The guy who owned the Porsche got what he deserved. I hope your weekend is going well and the weather pleasant. Take good care my friend. Love, Merle.

This is a funny story. I think that would have stopped me if I were a guilty little girl. ;)
