    Why!?

    There's a vending machine just right outside of the cinema. Placed $2 into the vending machine, press the button and wait. Few seconds later, press again and wait.....then start pressing the other button furiously...OK, nothing comes out, fine. Turned the return coins' knob...

    The vending machine in my highschool was a

    total troll. I'd put the money and punch my snack number and the silly thing would swirl my snack out of it's shelf just to get it stuck onto the next shelf. Then to make up it'd swirl another snack if the same I punched in, and I'd think Oh! It'll drop onto the stuck one and...

    Bow Down To The Chemical Gods Or Be Denied

      Have you ever noticed that a large part of your work morale is centered around a vending machine? Just Thursday, I put my $1.25 into a favorite vending machine and, as if by magic, it blessed me with a 20 oz. bottle of Diet Mountain Dew. I was happy as I sipped the...

    It's Not About The Money

    It's about the anticipation of a snack, then being denied. Last time I had a problem with a vending machine it was at work. Getting the dollar back was easy but after that I decided not to tempt fate even with another machine. Fortunately it was almost lunchtime and I was able...

    Craving that packet of Cheese & Onion Crisps

    3am in the morning on night shift and a sudden craving for cheese and onion crisps. No problem - off to the snack machine, inser the exorbitant fee, the machine churns away and does its stuff but the packet fails to drop as it is hooked on the corkscrew dispenser. No problem I...

    Id Hurt Myself

    I try to use vending machines as little as possible.. I'd rather pay more and buy it from a real person if I can... vending machines make me mad enough to try and hit them, then I end up hurting myself.. no fun

    The Fifty Cent Rage

    I know the price of vending machine snacks are more than 50 cents these days, but when it was 50 cents I made up a saying because of a certain vending machine we had at work that they claimed was fixed time after time but never really was. I called it the fifty cent rage...

    Who Hasn't

    Just last night, I watched three boys shaking a machine down stairs from my apartment because they didn't get their bag out of it. I went down there to get a cherry coke and when they saw me they stopped and acted like nothing was happening. One even said 'hey mama whats up...

    Risk Vs. Reward

    I worked at a dog track where you could bet on live events, simulcast races around the States, and bet your hands at the cards. The employee vending machines, naturally, were also a bit of a long shot. On good days you could chance your money and receive an item in return, but...

    Wrong Group?

    Okay, so maybe I'm in the wrong group - but I think that being refused a timely exit from a Hospital Car Park due to repeated Rejection of Note/Bill is even more heinous. And Hospital Parking Lots & Snack Vending Machines are certainly intrinsically linked, in that they...
