Can you think of a better way to teach a 12 year old girl a good lesson?

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

This was absolutely hilarious! The whole time I was reading it, I was like: "Don't those girls know how dirty those mirrors must be?" And then when I read that he had dunked it in the toilet and cleaned the mirror with it, I laughed and probably made a pretty disgusted face at it. XD And those little princesses seem like they have no idea about anything, so I'm glad they got taught a lesson.

They deserve it. At that age they should be able to reason right from wrong.

I love that. If only something could be done to make sure boys of any age would hit the toilet when using the bathroom.
