It's like Russian Roulette

There are two vending machines in my office that I swear it's like playing Russian Roulette. And yes, I am actually writing a blog about vending machines. So yeah, these two vending machines can either drive you absolutely crazy or they excite you from the possibility of getting something random.

They are both soda machines, so that right there means you never know. The Pepsi machine isn't really all that exciting, but there is still the thrill of the game. Time after time I have put money into the machine waiting for my delicious diet mountain dew and SURPRISE I get a Pepsi. I mean OK I like a lil Pepsi sometimes, but usually when I'm heading for that machine I'm in need of an instant caffeine high from mountain dew, that doesn't happen so much with Pepsi.

The other machine is where the fun is. See it is a Dr. Pepper machine, and that is my true addiction. I often go to the machine and think really hard about whether I want a diet Dr. Pepper, a coke zero or a delicious Dasani water. 9 times out of 10 I go with the diet Dr. Pepper. Not only do you really never know what kind of beverage you are going to get, there is an added strategy to this game ... will you get 1, will you get 3 or will you get screwed none.

It's kind of sad that trips to the vending machine for a caffinated beverage can brighten my day.

Random side note:

I'm considering buying a boat. We are still having a ton of rain and I keep thinking that maybe I should get a boat instead of waiting for my car to wash away. Today I literally was drenched just from the walk to my car from my apartment. Everyone in my office found it quit comical, I in turn sat here freezing.

Haha...I'm more of a fan of the soda vending machines that have the little elevator in them. I dont know why but that always puts a smile on my face! :)

Oh man! I love when you pay for one thing and end up getting 2 or 3. But, that's the worse when you get nothing..and you just keep sitting there, pressing the button - hoping the machine will eventually give you something!!
