A number of 12-year-old girls were beginning to use lipstick and would put it on in the washroom. 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. He called all the girls to the washroom and met them there with the maintenance man. He 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, he 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.

  1. Time for an ‘apology’ comment – apologies for not leaving comments – I love reading your blog and I get so much from it – you are a wonderful person and I get the idea that if I knew you in the real world – as opposed to the blogging world – you would be one of those people I would turn to for advice – your kids are so lucky to have you as their Mum (UK translation for Mom ::) ) and having read the post about your daughter graduating I have no absolutely no doubt that you have given your daughter all the tools she needs to face this world of ours – good for you!!!


    • What a sweet comment for you to make. Thank you! I truly appreciate your kind words. I love spending time at your place and nod my head (and smile) at some of your child-raising stores! 😉
