            ======================for informational purposes only!!!===============

I've read many text files on all the various ways to get money and goods
outta vending machines and most of them are either out of date or just
plain useless. So this brings me to my first ever textfile :) ok, I live
in a building with like 40 or 50 residents so the pop machines (and the
coin-op laundry machines, but more on that later) get used QUITE often.
Now the pop machines cost 60 cents per pop so when someone uses a dollar
bill, 40 cents is returned back down the coin return. he he he.....
that's where the fun begins : ALL you gotta do is roll up a large
baggie and stuff it up there with a fork bent like this:

              (before)      _______________ 


              (after)       _______________   |

then wait......check it about every day or two by pulling the baggie out
with the bent fork. you'll be surprised.......sounds lame? let's do a
little elementary math: say, 20 people use a dollar bill and don't get
their 40 cents change. that's 8 dolars. 40 people? 16 dollars. and these
are the averages I've gotten in a day or two wait cause I'm impatient. I
left it for a week one time and came back to check it and it was like
bustin' a slot machine! quarters came flyin' out.......now you might
think that people would get wise and stop using the machine, but they
don't care. 40 cents just isn't that much to people these days, and I'm
assuming they just smack the machine and curse the vending company. plus
if you do it in an area that is more likely to have random people using
it no one will ever be the wiser. One last thing. if someone happens to
chance upon you diggin in the coin slot and asks what you're doing, tell
them that the machine ate your change and you're just tryin to unclog
it. your totally covered! and if they are still messin with you you can
try to get them to put a dollar in to prove it's clogged......more money
for you! heh heh heh....

up next:
coin-op laundry machines...........
