10:45 I stop at the vending machine to buy a juice on my way to office hours, and watch through the clear glass front of the machine as the dispensing arm fails to collect my beverage, delivering nothing but air for my $1.50.
10:48 I buy the same juice from the cooler in front of the coffee shop instead. It costs $2.69 and it is warm.
12:00 I buy a bottle of Diet Coke from the machine downstairs, still grumpy that I have to pay $1.25 for 20 ounces of Diet Coke in a plastic bottle (too much Coke and too fizzy) when I used to be able to pay only $0.75 for 12 ounces in a can (perfect amount of beverage, perfect amount of fizz). When the bottle is dispensed, it is squashed and leaking and the soda is completely flat.
1:00 I buy a bottle of Diet Coke from the cooler in the bookstore instead. It is perfectly room temperature.
Help me; I am so fucking thirsty.
