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.”
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!!
