Iowa Man Literally Forklifts The Fudge Out Of A Money-Grubbing Vending Machine, But Ends Up With His Twix Wrapped In A Pink Slip!

iowa forklift twix vending machine fired national guard

Like Wall Street CEOs & used car salesmen, vending machines are NOTORIOUS for stealing money from the hungry and the destitute!

And there's a vending machine in Milford, Iowa that's apparently worse than most!!!

Veteran and forklift operator Robert McKevitt wasn't having it, though! He stuck a dollar in the aforementioned vending machine at his warehouse and waited patiently for his carmel-drizzled, milk chocolate-coated Twix bar.

It. Never. Came.

The 27-year-old described his thought process:

“I was, like, ‘Oh, man. So I put in another dollar, and then it wouldn’t do anything.”

Again??? Noooo!

So then he took matters into his own a machine's hands and drove up to the vending machine with his 8,000 pound forklift, lifted it high above the ground with his mechanically supplemented might, and then let it drop like a motherlovin' Skrillex beat!

And he had to do it five more times (allegedly) before the unholy food dispensary FINALLY shot out a load of sugary-goodness!

Can you guess what happened next?

He was fired. Fired for trying to get the candy he rightfully paid for.

Robert summed up the super sad dramz:

“That machine was trouble. They fired me, and now I hear they have all new vending machines there.”

Ugh!!! Robert probably never expected a welcoming home party like this when he was serving with the National Guard in Afghanistan!!

Sorry for the loss of your job, good sir!!! If it makes you feel any better, you can nibble on our Twix anytime!!!

In other news, candy is wildly unhealthy!!

    He's and idiot and deserved getting fired. Been there with crappy vending machines. All he had to do was wait for he the "guy' to come in and complain and he'd get his money back. Destroying an expensive vending machine was not the answer. No snack is worth loosing your job over.

    I would be more apt to compare a theiving vending machine to the poor than to suit and tie guys. White collar criminals steal money from other white collar people. I live in a community full of successful men and can leave my BIKES outside in the driveway. My ghetto living cousins cant even LOCK a bike outside on their street. It will never survive the night so they push their bike up a flight of stairs to their apartment . As for this guy….I dont think I would fire a GOOD forklift operator over this. I'd have just given him a warning. (nothing like firing a good employee and replacing him with a nightmare employee). If he damaged the machine, I'd have him pay for the damages. The exception is if I didnt own the machine (much of the time its somebody else who owns the machine and they share a percentage with the businesses that allows its placement). He'd get canned if it was another company's machine.

    I just got paid $7500 working off my computer this month. And if you think that's cool, my divorced friend has twin toddlers and made over $8k her first month. It feels so good making so much money when other people have to work for so much less. This is what I do, , MONEYJURY.COM

    Start working at home with Google! Just work for few hours and have more time with friends and family. I earn up to $500 per week. It's a great work at home opportunity. I can't believe how easy it was once I tried it out. Linked here

    I'm sorry, but I don't think it's surprising he was fired. I mean, come one! Dude picked up a vending machine with a forklift and repeatedly dropped it on the ground until it basically broke open… I would consider that borderline psychotic behavior. What if this guy snaps like this while driving?? Will he ram his car repeatedly into another if he gets mad at another driver? Where does he draw the line?

    Re: Panda – his side of the story is that he only shook it. He didnt crash it down.

    Only happened to me once at my former employer. I went to the cashier in the cafeteria and since they had closed out their registers asked me if I could come back tomorrow.No problem, money refunded, but I can see if this is a standalone machine where it could be a problem.
