Thread: If Vending Machine Robs You...

  1. #1

    Question If Vending Machine Robs You...

    I have a scenario for you guys to ponder.

    It's in the middle of the night and you thirst for a soft drink. You went down your block where there are 2 vending machines hosted by a small grocery shop.

    Everything looks fine till you dropped in your dollar coin into one of the machines. You hear a choke sound and realised the last coin you had was stuck. You tried turning the refund lever but apparently the lever is broke too.

    What would you do?

    it happened to me and I went back, got a piece of paper and stuck it over the coin hole and wrote "MONEY EATING MACHINE"

    Where's that Happy Tree Friends video that shows you what happens to people who get mad at vending machines? =D

    On another hand;

    13 people are killed each year by vending machine's falling on them.

    Sh*t, u beat me to it. I was about to mention this. Yeah, quite a number of such cases in the States.

    So far, I don't know if we have such cases here but the most violent form of revenge on the machine I have seen is just kicking it out of frustration. I have had on a few occasions lost my money this way and each time I was tempted to take out my frustration on the machine by banging it with my fist hoping that a few cans will drop out. In the end, sanity prevailed otherwise I could have ended up being charged for vandalising the machine.

    I guess everyone would somehow apply differentiated machine treatment...

    Let's see which one is the favorite style...

    I think he was just kidding, lah. That bloody machine is damn heavy and it takes alot of hard work shaking it before it can topple onto you or the other directions.
