Has this ever happened to you? You have multiple cups lying around the house between you and your significant other/roommate/mother/father/sibling/whoever, and because there is more than one cup and both you and your significant other/whoever are moving them around throughout the day, you end up drinking out of the glass on the kitchen table, and go to fill it up, and put it on your desk to enjoy it as you work only have your significant other/whoever waltz into the room passive-aggressively and ask WHY YOU ARE CONSTANTLY STEALING HIS/HER CUP, SERIOUSLYWTF, DRINK OUT OF YOUR OWN GLASS! ? Animal drink tags will ensure no glass-related tension arises in your household.
