Local speaks about triggering juice bottles from school days

Do you remember those plastic juice bottles that most kids had back in the day? Well, not all kids have good memories of them.

When you look back at your childhood, there's always that one thing that may or may not bring back bad memories. 

Sometimes, it's looking back at how you used to wear your hair, other times it's a particular lunch that you would prefer never to have again. 

Either way, there are things from our school days that we sometimes wish to keep in the past. 

A TikToker who describes themselves as an introvert trying out TikTok shared a triggering memory from his school days. 

In the video, we see a water/juice bottle that used to be popular. Nowadays, we see fancy bottles that match lunchboxes and are themed like Paw Patrol and Peppa Pig. 

The recollection of this old-school water bottle refers to how it would leak in his backpack.
