A number of 12-year-old girls were beginning to use lipstick and would put it on in the girl's 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 Headmistress decided that something had to be done. She called all the girls to the washroom 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).
So, to demonstrate how difficult it was to clean the mirrors, she asked the maintenance man to show the girls how much effort was required. He took out a long-handled brush, dipped it in the toilet bowl, and scrubbed the mirror with it.
The silence was broken by a large number of gasps, a few girls vomited and apparently someone fainted, however, since then, to the relief of the maintenance man, there have been no lip prints on the mirror.
OK, it's probably just an urban legend, but funny anyway. :-)
oldie but goodie
Saw it coming a mile away.
When i was a kid a bunch of us carved our names into the wooden desk at school when teacher found out made us buy sand paper and varnish and redo desk..
Took me 4 hours one Saturday,never carved or marked a school desk ever again...
After listening to Chris Plante, Rush and Hannity, I needed a laugh. Thanks.
Gklenn Beck’s show is on. Now there is an educator eacher not a ‘Feducator’.
Can’t do that any more. Nowadays kids are treated as princes of the realm.
My son went to grade school in a small town here in Texas. He and another boy were scuffling in the hall and kicked a door and left a shoe print on it. They both had to come Saturday morning and wash all of the doors in the school.
It would be so wrong to teach it a lesson...
About 10 of us carved our desks after we sanded for hours we had to sweep up every bit of sawdust,teacher in formed us that if we varnished and on Monday when he checked desks spotted sawdust beneath the varnish,we would have to do them again...
Christian Brothers such a pain..:>)
You and Jerry Pournelle.
I tried and i cannot figure out your comment.
Do i need a decoding ring?
Jerry Pournelle (assuming you know who he is...one of the more famous science-fiction authors, and columnist for Byte magazine for many years) was taught in high school by the Christian Brothers. He ascribes the traits of character he learned from them as taking him from a budding juvenile delinquent to solid citizen.
So you're in good company if you were taught by them.
I have great respect for Catholic educators. They take the hard-to-teach, and teach them up to standards of the highest caliber.
Thanks i briefly looked up Jerry and they said SF writer,could not get the connection.
Taught by Irish christian brothers for 12 yrs and yes i was a budding delinquent..
I will check out his books am a huge fan of Philip.K.Dick..
