The Trash Can that Could...

My boss decided about a year ago to get a vending machine. Usually he gets the most expensive thing he can, like the trash can
that opens by itself, but this time he went for the really cheap stuff. The kind of machine that doesn't give you what you pay for.

Some of us around the office are better than other at not getting their good. Let's take,Grumpy, a coworker as an example. E-v-e-r-y s-i-n-g-l-e t-i-m-e he tries to buy something, the machine rips him off (it might have something to do with his nickname...machines can feel people)! It is funny everytime, but the best time was when his daughter was in the office and she went with him to buy something. Of course everybody warned her that her dad had no luck with the machine, which she probably didn't really believe until...well you know...somebody had to go and get the stuff out for him.

Some of us on the other hand are lucky. I actually put a one dollar bill in the machine today and expected to receive four quarters and instead I got 15! Which makes $3.75 for those of you who are not too good in math. It does happen quite a bit to me and to this other woman in the office, let call her Otay (I'll explain later). Now that I think about it, maybe it's not just because Grumpy is ...well Grumpy, that he doesn't get his food, we might actually have a male vending machine....or a lesbian one. Well you might say that it could very well be a really friendly female vending machine, but my ego likes to think that the fact that I am pretty has something to do with it!

Ok, the self-opening trash can cracked me up. Does it open all the time, even when people don't want it to?

Funny you ask that!

The trash can opens as soon as you wave your hand in front of it.

We sometimes have meetings in the kitchen, and one of my co-workers is a champion for sitting right next to the trash can and every time he manages to stretch, and accidentally open it! It never fails!
