Cost of water RIP-OFF
« on: August 09, 2012, 12:32:48 AM »

From 2004, a large despenser bottle of drinking water has risen from 5rmb to 10rmb.
Some companies now want you to buy 100 tickets for 1000rmb.

Why would I pay 1000rmb in advance, for no discount, for tickets I'm sure to loose.
They also want me to discard 6 empty bottles worth 360rmb and pay another deposit of 360rmb on 6 of their bottles.

This is life-sustaining water we are talking about, not a commodity to be used as an extortion tool.

Buy a filter, man.  It's the best 150RMB or so that I paid and I haven't looked back since.  Those water bottle companies are not to be trusted, especially after hearing some of them (or all, who knows), refill the bottles with reg. tap water, then re-seal them.

Go filter, man. ;)

Im sorry, but I dont see why you are all so obsessed with Savile on a thread about a decent, and recently departed man. What is the connection? Can we get back on track?
