A sad commentary, but true. I drive truck and haul bottled water for a living. I have been doing this for the last 2 years. Believe it or not hauling water pays more than 2 times what I made hauling fuel.
I used to stand in our fuel stop, listening to drivers complain about $1.50 for a gallon of diesel, while drinking a bottle of water @ $1.00 for a pint,,,, and on the few occasions that I made mention of this, I was promptly invited to perform acts upon myself that are humanly impossible!
I still don't drink bottled water, even though I can get it for free, and the springs we get it from are some of the best water around. It just ain't natural for me to be sucking water out of a plastic bottle,,
Some days I just want to stop in a school, so I can grab a slurp out of a good old fashion drinking fountain, they were a novelty to us country kids.
