I just got back from the vending machine. And I’m not happy.
We haven’t had a vending machine for several weeks because of a new contract with Frito-Lay (a client of the agency) and something about conflict of interest, yada yada. I don’t care as long as Frito-Lay is friends with Masterfoods (makers of delicious Peanut M&Ms). Which they are. Whew.
So we’ve been without a vending machine. I finally wrote a note to our building manager this week and asked him about the return of the vending machine. I kinda threatened him with the wrath of a hungry pregnant lady and he promised that the vending machine would be back by the end of the week. Yeah right.
But sure enough – Angela just came by to tell me that it’s back! So I dig out some change and brave the freezing cold of the breezeway to get some Peanut M&Ms. I discover that not only have the Peanut M&Ms moved from E4 to E6, but they now cost 60 cents! Whatever. I put in my 60 cents, and…
I don’t know how well you can tell from the picture – but the M&Ms are perched on the edge. Taunting me. So I huff back to my desk to get 60 MORE cents and come back to the machine. And…
Note the first package of M&Ms in the bottom of the machine. And the second package still stuck.
So I just finished my $1.20 package of M&Ms and wrote a nasty email to the building manager about the “new” machine. I have waited for weeks to have the option to buy Peanut M&Ms at 3:00 in the afternoon. Injustice. That’s what this is.
