Please Stop Flipping Your Water Bottle

example of a water bottle, water bottle flipping

There's a fad right now that's driving me insane. Kids (and I guess some adults), enjoy filling water bottles to a certain level with liquid, flipping the bottles in the air, and hoping they land either on their bases or, extra excitingly, on their caps. 

Kids are doing it in the hallways, in the classrooms, on the sports fields and aboard their busses. They're doing it all, excuse me, the flipping time. They're doing it right here on my kitchen counter way more often that I would like. Which is ever. 

The fact that I hate the flipping does, I admit, make me feel old. Yes, I feel crotchety when I tell kids that I hate the sound they're making with their hobby. And that they're driving me generally crazy. And please, for the love of all that is good in the world, to stop flipping that stupid thing.

I might be experiencing a new nervous condition related to the water bottle flipping fad. I don't know what it's called. Maybe, Generational Misunderstanding Due to Plastic Bottle Flippage? Whatever it is, I need relief.

I'm really glad you wrote about this. One of the Thirdlanders brought in a water bottle and started
flipping it one day last week. I had no idea this was a thing. After asking him to stop 2x, I just walked
up and took the bottle away from him. Then later I found out that this bottle flipping thing was
going around. I'm going to suggest people find better things to do with their time. Bottle flipping
is something I really do not care for at all. said...

Absolutely over the moon with! Such good quality and looks so good! The perfect thing to keep detox water in and the juicing compartments make it so much tastier. The only thing wrong about it is that I didn't buy one sooner at!
