Put 50p into a coffee vending machine, got the coffee but not in a cup ?!

Question: Put 50p into a coffee vending machine, got the coffee but not in a cup !?
the damn thing came out but no cup from the chute , coffee and milk but went back down the little hole!. I felt so annoyed and embarrassed cos I could just feel everyones eyes on me, waiting to see what my reaction would be!. I just blew air out between my lips as if it to suggest this was a big farce!.

Well I rang up the number on the machine, and it got thru to an answering message service!. I left a message!. Will the ppl in charge take it seriously !?

50p is 50p at the end of the day, I departed with my money and got nothing back - to my understanding thats how the world frigging works, I should have seen a CUP come out FIRST and then the coffee go into it!. arrgh im so annoyed!. I have a lot on my mind, lot of sh!t to sort out - the last thing I wanna do is chase up on this incident!. Should I just forget it !? or should I chase it up !? Www@FoodAQ@Com

The principle of it is - you did you're part of the deal by inserting the 50p & didn't get you're part of the deal!.

Keep complaining & enjoy you're free coffee when you get it lolWww@FoodAQ@Com

Well I don't think you should get so worked up about it, but I certainly don't think you should just forget it neither!.

It happens to me now and again at my workplace, and I resorted to using Post It notes listing my name and department and the amount owed!. Other people in my company do the same thing!.

When the machine is refilled with supplies by the catering personnel, we are normally given a refund or a free coffee :)Www@FoodAQ@Com

Thats the exact reason I always carry an empty mug in my pocket!.

You never know when you will need these little emergency items!.!.!.!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

Its only 50p!

Forget about it


Go for it, get your money back, the cost of the phone call and the cost of wasting your time,Www@FoodAQ@Com
