A school janitor was upset because he had to work late every day to clean lipstick off the mirror in the girl’s bathroom. He complained to the principal, who made an announcement about it, but instead of stopping, the girls began putting even more lipstick on the mirror. Finally, the janitor, Elogio, came up with another idea and the principal agreed to go along with him much to the shock and disgust of the “entitled” girls. Revenge is definitely sweet.
One day, he asked the principal if she could gather several of the lipstick suspects and have them meet up in the bathroom. Of course, they had no choice but to obey her. These were the most popular girls in school. When the group of girls all gathered in the bathroom, Elogio had a little presentation for them…
“Ladies, thank you for coming,” said Elogio. “Every day at the end of the day I have to go through an unnecessary cleaning process. I’d like to show it to you and I’m hoping you’re willing to help. If you look over here to the mirror, you see these lip prints? They’re greasy and difficult to get off and I go home late every day because I spend so much time on these mirrors. I’d like to show you what I have to do every day.”
Elogio then went on to show the girls what he had to do every day, but he got a little creative with it. As the girls all watched, he dipped his mop in the toilet water and then proceeded to use that same mop to wipe the lipstick stains off the mirror. As to be expected, the looks on the girls’ faces were priceless. They looked disgusted. We can bet that they will not be kissing the mirrors again anytime soon.
Sometimes you just have to get creative to teach a lesson. Props to Elogio for standing his ground, as it ended up working out well for both parties involved. He had less cleaning to do and he could go home at a reasonable hour, and the girls learned a lesson in respect that they will take with them through life.
