Lipstick in Schools

Recommended Posts

Hi, I'm not sure where this originated from but it made me chuckle! :lol:


According to a news report, a certain private school in Dartford 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.


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.

That made me laugh out loud - thank you AMO 8):lol::lol::lol:


My daughters school has a new Head this year, & she has got very strict with make-up on girls (& presumably boys :wink: )


I am delighted. My eldest was into these awful Amy Winehouse flicks, & they have gone now *phew*


It took all my resolve not to say 'go & wash your face' but to try the reverse psychology on her by telling her she looked lovley & maybe she could teach me how to do it so I could look like that too 8):lol:

Hee hee :D


My daughter's school is in Dartford, and honestly the amount of slap some of the youngsters wear :shock: . That said her school's not private.........I'm now racking my brain to work out which school it could have been :roll: .


I think it probably originated in the states and Dartford was added when the email made it over the pond - the rest of the text uses some american terms.
