    We have a demon possessed machine in vendo land at our work. Once in awhile I feel the need for peanut M&M’s or a phat Reeses Peanut Butter Cup and today was one of those days. At 10 a.m. I saunter by (yes, I saunter rather than walking, it’s much easier on my knees) and I notice that the trolls who stock the demon machine had recently been in house. Pausing I dig into my pocket and feel around, after a few pleasurable moments I pull my hand forth with 80 cents and a happy look upon my face. I slowly throw the silver into the demon and select “E6”. With a tense look upon my face I watch the silver roller ease around and my treasure inch towards the plexi glass. Within a half a second I get a bad feeling as the silver roller pauses and then stops, my M&M’s leaning back towards the other packages nowhere near dropping into the dispenser. A few moments tick by, despair quickly replaced by anger. I ball up a fist and give the machine a little “tap”. Nothing.

    At this point I have to take a few breaths and do a little recon around the break area. No one around. Good. I check the hallway, nothing. Good. Time for business.

    I don’t know what I did but I do know that if you tip the machine far enough it slams back down with enough force to shut the machine off AND bring the 4 foot Indian lady down the hallway to check on the noise. I chat cordially (yes, I can be cordial, much like the cherries) for a few moments and assure the Indian lady that all is well and that I’m just having a chat with the machine. Shortly there after I’m rocking the machine again and finally the demon has enough and belches forth the goods.

    Never thought 80 cents would ever bring me that much fun.

    I hope there isn’t a video stream from that room. 🙂

    I really think we need to start following Muddy around with a video camera. We could release his hijinks as “The weird adventures of Muddy”, starting with a reconstructed episode of the infamous fishing trip –

    that show would have so many watchers. I can see it on the discovery channel or maybe just Spike Tv.

    I once saw 4 drunk college students wrestle one of those bad boys for it’s goods. They almost got very hurt when they pushed it over so it fell flat on it’s face. When they finally did get it back up it had belched forth it’s entire stock. It was entertaining to watch.

    Muddy, I think the twin to your demon Vending machine is at my work. On more then one occasion I’ve had to brawl with it over a bag of chips or a tasty Snickers bar. The sad part is sometimes it wins…..to bad I leave my swords at home. 😉

    I’ve never lost a battle with that damn machine… my co worker has a huge issue with machines eating quarters. Only once have I had to go get Mike, and that time we got more than I paid for. 🙂 Which was awesome.

    Good thing he didn’t put his peg-leg through the plexy glass, she woulda seen the damage for sure.
