    They should really get creative and return the bottles to Michigan to get the 10 cent deposit.

    They busted some racket not too long ago that was collecting them in Vegas and then driving into California for the 5 cent deposit. Found semi trailers full of the things.

    And why the fuck are you allowed to get bottled water like that on food stamps? Don't taxes pay for clean drinking water out of a faucet these days?

    Stand outside a ball park and sell em for a buck a bottle.
    Way more money than dump and return.

    Oh wait, that would be too much like working.

    True but you'd be sure to sell them all and very quickly.

    But again, too much like work so they'd never try that.

    Exactly. Bottled water is a prime example of a convenience purchase, something that taxpayers shouldn't be providing other people.

    I'd be ok with letting them use food stamps to refill the 5 gallon jugs at the windmill shaped kiosks.

    I was joking before when I suggested that you never leave your parent's basement, but when you say some clueless shit like this right here, It makes me think I hit the nail on the head.

    To be perfectly honest, I think more people are doing this than the "water dumping". There are always people in my neighborhood selling bottles of water for $1.00.

    I see a butt load of people selling water in the lots by the
    Philly sports complex. They almost out number the scalpers.

    I never considered this. I almost respect the people who do this since it is almost like an honest job. Almost.

    That is the going price. Just bought one a couple weeks ago on the walk by the subway station after a game.

    That's because it's taxpayer subsidized via food stamps.

    Next they will sue for disability benefits because they got the carpal tunnel from unscrewing all those caps.
