Fuckin Vending Machines Don’t Take New Quarters August 1, 2007

Posted by whatpushesmybuttons in critique, opinion, sarcasm.
trackback

Seriously…what’s the deal. I’ve tried pumping quarter after quarter into our soda machine here and nothing seems to work. They won’t take the new quarters for shit. Must be something with the weighting. I think the old quarters had more weighting to them, sorta how the cue ball is heavier than the other balls on a billiards table.


Vending machines are getting no action thanks to the new quarters

Not only that, but the metro north ticket machine wouldn’t take my new quarters either this morning on my way to CT for a meeting. Becoming increasingly annoyed at not being able to use change to buy soda, snacks or even a train ticket, I checked online to see if this sorta thing was happening elsewehere.

With a quick Google search I found the US Mint website which said:

“All machines and venues where quarters are accepted are able to receive the 50 State Quarters®.”

http://www.usmint.gov/mint_programs/50sq_program/index.cfm?flash=yes&action=faq_50sq&criteria&printer=yes#anchor417391

Hmm…not sure about that. Has anyone at the government actually TRIED using their new quarters in a vending machine? Or do they just get their shit for free? Wait don’t answer that…cause I don’t want to even know how much shit taxpayers pay for that government employees get for free.

No one in my office is able to use the soda machine anymore. It’s basically useless, unless you have a stash of old quarters sitting around. But then inevitably you’re one old quarter short of a $1.25 and you’re basically fucked cause the machine just ate your dollar.

Don’t get me wrong. I like the new quarters. I really do.

The back of the new quarters gives you state pride and it’s just like playing the license plate game…you get excited when you see a state quarter you haven’t seen before. Or at least I do. Maybe because I’m a loser who gets excited by such things. I just wish they kept the weighting the same so vending machines would take the new quarters. I mean how am I supposed to become a fat, lazy American if I can’t buy my soda and chips from the vending machine everyday???

That’s like the change machine at the laundromat not accepting the new 10s for two months. But I moved and have a washer/dryer in the new place, so eff you Metro Cleaners!

These new quarters are a whole lot of b.s. And the vending machines are crotchety tightwads. Love your blog by the way. I’m blogrolling this mother up.

13. The Fresh Cracker - August 3, 2007

Besdies the new quarters, I’m still very upset that vending machines haven’t evolved to the point of taking debit cards [or pennies, for that matter.]

14. chris - August 3, 2007

Abarclay12: LOVE your blog as well….awesome job! I’d encourage people to check out her work…especially the latest post on getting busted for shoplifting!

BrooklynBoy: sorry about that…i talk sports non-stop with my friends or any other random guy at the bar who will listen (its what happens when you work with an office/team of mostly women)…so i try to keep such trivial matters off this blog and around “the water cooler”…but sorry to tease…i don’t think i’ve been excused of teasing since i wore that micro-mini a few years back. ah, the joys of making the boys’ at the pound hearts aflutter!

Cracker: yeah, what gives…how useless are pennies. really. and everything else takes debit cards these days why not vending machines!!! we’ll need to find some solution to this pronto!

15. candice - August 3, 2007
