The Vending Machine

John was doing some observations on an office drinks vending machine, that contained 120 drinks, for no reason whatsoever from 8:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. From 8:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m., the drinks were being dispensed at a fast, constant rate. By 11:00 a.m., all drinks were gone. Realizing the vending machine had ran out of drinks, one of John’s co-workers, Brad, had decided to fill it back up at a constant rate (don’t ask me where he got the drinks to do this with. Maybe he collects drinks from vending machines or something like that). Since Brad had no experience in filling a vending machine with drinks, the vending machine thought, “Wow, this guy is really bad at this. Let’s make is harder for him.” Then, to make it harder for Brad, he tips himself over when brad reaches 75 drinks (that’s still a lot of drinks. I really should’ve thought this out more). Brad took a full 2 hours to lift it back up (John is still observing). So now, Brad has lifted the vending machine back up, be he stopped filling it back up (quitter) wand let it sit there for the rest of the day.
