I tried unsuccessfully to find a source to this fun story.

I like to think of myself as an Educator! See Story below:

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 on 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 bathroom and met them there with the maintenance man. He explained to the girls that all these lip prints were causing a major problem for the maintenance man who had to clean the mirrors every night (you can just imagine all the yawns from the little princesses).

To demonstrate how difficult it had been for the maintenance man to clean the mirrors, the principal asked the maintenance man to show the girls how much effort was required. Then the maintenance man 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.
