Did I tell you how much I love vending machines?  
I put a quart in the machine. $0.25 registers. I put the second quarter in and it calls it a nickel. $.030 registered. I hit the coin return and get 3 dimes back. So I dig in my pocket and find enough change to try one more time.

I put a quarter in and it registers $.025. So far so good and as a bonus, I get the quarter back in the change return, so I can use it again. $0.50 registered. I put my 5 dimes in and $1.00 shows and I can buy my goodies!

Now lets see. I lost $.020 cents on the first round and gained $.025 on the second round! I'm $.05 cents ahead! GDJ one, vending machine zero! :-)

Re: LOL!
Of course, the sad truth is that this very same vending maching had taken my money many times and given me nothing! Why I keep gambling there, I don't know! :-)

Re: LOL!
well hey it's not like you're playing the slots or anything...then I'd be worried, lol. And it's not your fault, anyway. You're doing everything right.

Now there's an idea, if your contract ever does run out you can hang around vending machines, get food out of them and go home with a few extra dollars to pay bills with....LOL

A quart of what...milk? *LOL* Um, $.025 is two and a half cents. Not possible, my friend. *grin* Have a great weekend, Gary!

You caught me in a typo, which isn't a hard thing to do! You have a good one too! And a misplaced decimal point too! It's your lucky day! ;-)
