Prom Organizer: Souvenir ‘Harmless’

In his The EDge blog, Kevin Richert provides a student's response to a tempest-in-teapot controversy re: giving out shot glasses at a high school prom. Here’s an excerpt from organizer Sammantha Gulliford’s guest opinion in today's Twin Falls Times-News:

“I ran for junior class president out of choice and to make this school actually have an amazing prom for once. I have to say with this article and the way it was portrayed makes a part of me never want to run for student council again. It shows that all the work we did wasn’t appreciated. … So thank you for taking away the joy I had in planning, what I thought, was one amazing prom. Thank you for never asking me if I ever needed help. Thank you for making me feel more stressed about a harmless glass than actually planning prom.” More here.

Question: Would you keep a shot glass if it was handed out at your high school prom as a souvenir?
