Love's Labour's Lost

A private school was recently faced with a unique problem. Several 12-year-old girls were beginning to use lipstick, and after they put it on in the bathroom, they would press their lips to the mirror, leaving dozens of little lip prints. Every night the custodian would remove them, and the very next day the girls would put them back again.

Finally the principal decided that something had to be done, so she called all the girls to the bathroom to meet with the custodian, explaining that all these lip prints were causing a major problem for the custodian who had to clean the mirrors every night. She asked the custodian to demonstrate to the girls how difficult it was 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.
