Honestly, in my opinion, buying of any kind of bottled water in Nigeria is like giving free money to their manufacturers. Initially, when i started drinking bottled water i believed it could reduce the incidence of typhoid in my life thinking tht they are processed hygienically. come to think of it, do we see them when they do this processing? So we just assume the water was well processed abi? However, i found out it did not happen like that. Despite that fact, typhoid came whenever it pleased to come and ofcourse that still took some coins off me. So i decided i will not take bottled water again except where there is no pure water. Come to think of it, is there really any difference between them? (Bottled water and pure water). Either way, typhoid will come. And ofcourse, i dont drink bottled water in my house, atimes i remember to boil atimes i forget and i still drink from the borehole in my house directly .
But generally, i noticed that some people pride in it at restaurants or canteens when they order for bottled water. Honestly, some people i see in this situation are people i know i am far far richer than and they still pose that they are drinking bottled water. Is it bigmanism or what?
Abeg, i need someone to enlighten me, maybe there is something i am getting absolutely wrong.
