hmmm..

This afternoon, I stood briefly in front of the vending machines in the break room thinking about making a purchase. Until I noticed the prices...


HOLY COW! How can everything else be so inexpensive around this place, but they charge 80-friggen-cents for a candy bar? Not only that, but the cheapest thing was 80 cents! Have I been living in some sort of vending-machine-less hole? Is this normal? Oh my goodness gracious...

The only reasonable prices were from the coffee machine. 50-80 cents depending on your choice in size/extras. Not bad. Didn't even need to pursue that option, though, I brought my own packet of instant capp. today and I used the lovely hot-water dispenser next to the sink to make it. *yea* Now there's a routine I could get into. But remind me to bring snacks from home. geez.

Maybe I will have to steal office supplies and sell them on the black market (because there is obviously a black market for post-it notes) to make enough money to by a can of pringles ($1.10!!).


Or not. I would never steal office supplies. :-D

High vending machine prices seem to be the norm from what I can see... Sarah is apparently very lucky. Then again it's usually around 60 cents for a candy bar in a convenience store, and vending machine operators are out to make a big profit on small things. Hence the higher prices... Just my two 'cents' :0P

wow 80 cents is pretty cheap, at least in jersey it is. Here they are like $1.25 usually and chips are like 85 cents, which is a complete rip off considering the whole bag is air.

Dude... I pay $1 for candy bars at work, but they're big ones and I'm helping out the Stroke Association or something. :) Yeah, someone frequently has a box of fundraising sugar products. There are no actual vending machines at work. But there's a fridge full of free drinks. Techies need their carbonated caffeine, I guess. :)
