  1. My bottle of kitchen cleaner says "for a clean kitchen" so I can't use it, because mine is dirty.
  2. 20oz bottles are not recommended for the T-models since the delivery port is too narrow if the bottle comes down sideways. There is a diverter that can be riveted to the delivery chute but good luck finding one.
  3. If you suddenly started be able to hear people’s thoughts you would probably think you were developing schizophrenia rather than a super power.
  4. You’re not actually cleaning somewhere, you’re just moving things to somewhere else that you don’t want to deal with.
  5. Rap is mostly for dudes who were ashamed to admit they were into poetry.
  6. Go to the test menu and test all of the refrigeration systems, compressor, fans, etc. Could be a relay in the power supply . Make sure your evaporator fan is working. Could also be the evaporator temp sensor. They fail a lot.
  7. You can do almost anything in public without people thinking you’re crazy, as long as you have at least two friends with you who are laughing
  8. If every adult grew to be the same height, airline seats would probably be pretty comfortable.
  9. Theoretically, pizza has the potential to be the most balanced meal all in one slice.
  10. I had a neck brace fitted years ago and I haven't looked back since.
  11. Dogs make it acceptable for adults to play like children.
  12. Many years ago, a fisherman's wife blessed her husband with twin sons. They loved the children very much, but couldn't think of what to name their children. Finally, after several days, the fisherman said "Let's not decide on names right now. If we wait a little while, the names will simply occur to us". After several weeks had passed, the fisherman and his wife noticed a peculiar fact. When left alone, one of the boys would also turn towards the sea, while the other boy would face inland. It didn't matter which way the parents positioned the children, the same child always faced the same direction. "Let's call the boys Towards and Away" suggested the fisherman. His wife agreed, and from that point on, the boys were simply known as Towards and Away. The years passed and the lads grew tall and strong. The day came when the aging fisherman said to his sons "Boys, it is time that learned how to make a living from the sea". They provisioned their ship, said their goodbyes, and set sail for a three month voyage. The three months passed quickly for the fisherman's wife, yet the ship had not returned. Another three months passed, and still no ship. Three whole years passed before the grieving woman saw a lone man walking towards her house. She recognized him as her husband. "My goodness! What has happened to my darling boys?" she cried. The ragged fisherman began to tell his story: "We were just barely one whole day out to sea when Towards hooked into a great fish. Towards fought long and hard, but the fish was more than his equal. For a whole week they wrestled upon the waves without either of them letting up. Yet eventually the great fish started to win the battle, and Towards was pulled over the side of our ship. He was swallowed whole, and we never saw either of them again". "Oh dear, that must have been terrible! What a huge fish that must have been!" "Yes, it was, but you should have seen the one that got Away..."
  13. Thousands of years from now archaeologists will be speculating on why ancient humans collected and stored canine feces in non-biodegradable bags, and what ceremonial purposes it might have served
  14. I was reading through some old threads (actually in the political forum) looking for some material for another topic when I ran into this gem I quote below. Have each of you committed to to better for your business? We have had a lot of small locations close as well, but our over all revenues are OK. Increases (or lack of decreases) in this economy will vary, but the proliferation of cashless/telemetry technology is contributing. Every month cashless sales, as a percentage of total sales increases a little bit. Precision use of telemetry will allow you to work the machines more efficiently and at the right time. Workers are electing to not go out to lunch to save money and gas will increase vending sales. Changing from cans to bottles or adding bottles increases sales. Adding premium items to snack machines will increase sales, especially machines with card readers. Watching sold outs in machines and doubling up on items that sell out will increase sales. Eliminating items that do not sell well will increase sales. Having a few selections that feature a new item every 6 weeks will increase sales and interest. Keeping the machine clean, full, and working will increase sales. Doing any of the above will show positive growth. Doing all of the above keeps you in the game. The biggest mistake most vending operators is doing the same thing every day, week, month and year. I have gone into new locations and seen very old equipment. The comments are: "I've worked here for 25 years and that machine was here when I was hired". When walking through a new location, I hear "can we get a machine with a bill acceptor?" We laugh and watch them freak out when they see a card reader and Apple Pay decals. Right now the political climate is harsh to say the least. The economy in general is positive. GDP growth since the last election has been bullish, as has the stock market. We must continue forward or get run over (again). Our economy is fueled by confidence in the future. Confidence to make a profit, and to keep profits for reinvestment. {We should probably start a thread on the snack & beverage forum about how to increase same store sales}
