I tried buying ginger ale from a vending machine and the machine ate my toonie. I pressed the coin return button; nothing happened. The last time I tried to buy something from a vending machine was two months ago while my mother was in hospital, and that machine devoured my money too. It put me in a foul mood.
I passed by the very same vending machine two hours later, pushed a couple buttons and it spit out a five dollar bill.
