Default Anything but the M&Ms....

So, I was reading through my old online blog posts and ran across one of the funnier ones. I don't think I posted it here, so I'll copy-paste for your amusement...

I ordered a pizza and breadsticks for dinner. They were great, but I figured, HEY, every good meal needs dessert, right? So I run into the building to the candy machine, and lo and behold, there'* a bag of M&Ms (the king size ones that they sell for $1 around here) hanging halfway off the bottom rack. Usually when this happens, if you buy another, it'll fall, right?

It wouldn't be a funny story if that was the case. I put in my dollar, hit the button for it, and it jammed right on top of the first bag...shoulda heard me cuss...

So I go "Okay, another dollar should fix this." The third bag jams. Another dollar. Fourth jams. ANOTHER dollar...it jams AGAIN!

End of the story: $4 and 10 minutes with a plastic knife later, I have the four bags of King Size M&Ms that I paid for. The final insult: the first bag is STILL jammed in there....heh....

And, if you've ever seen on of them machines fall on something, or worse someone, you'd never shake one again. It ain't pretty, trust me.....
