Vending machine hell...

Went to the cafeteria for milk for my coffee.
I love coffee.
Walked past vending machines. Decided to get spearmint Lifesavers.
(Good for breath after drinking coffee all day...)
Family of four is filling vending machine area so I wait.
Father feeds dollar after dollar into machine.
Dollar after dollar after dollar.
Son pushes buttons.
Dollar after dollar after dollar.
Is he buying food for a month?
Packet after packet of sugar-coated, salt-laden, artificially-flavored, partially-hydrogenated, trans-fatty, artificially-colored (blue 7 and red 6), deep-fried, over-processed saturated fat drop...

Nausea. I leave.
No mints.
