Rum, Sodomy, and the Lash: Pick Two

Robbed by a Machine!

Originally uploaded by aghrivaine
This is on the vending machine at work. Last week, it took two of my dollars, and didn't even give me a chunk of something unhealthy in return. Maybe in a sort of meta way, the machine loves me, and wants to keep me away from Pop-Tarts. It knows the temporary gratification isn't worth the price!

Milk of human kindness from a machine aside, it didn't even give me change. Stoopid machine. So I left a note, the one on the right. I don't know if it's legible here (the larger size on flickr is), but it says, "This machine just ate $2 without vending anything or giving change. In these troubled economic times, can any of us afford to just throw money away? Don't use this machine!"

This morning when I came in, the pink note had joined my note - "I should have listened. It took my money too!" And when I went back to get a cup of coffee, "I want my 2 Dollars!" had joined it.
