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?

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. :bsmilie:

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. :bsmilie: :bsmilie:

Punch and/or Kick the Vending machine
Break something
Call the vendor till someone picks up and SCREAM
Come back when the shop owner hosting it is back and demand refund
Topple it
Go home and get some toolz and come back to rescue your money
Go home and get some toolz, come back to break something
Go home to get your markers and spray paint, it's time for graphic art
Switch off its power from the mains
Ripped off the its power cord
Find the nearest Trash bin and pour the trash in font of the machine
Sleep over it
U sure its a vending machine not a venting machine?

I think he was just kidding, lah. :bsmilie: 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.
