How is it that we can put a man on the moon, but we can't reliably get a bag of potato chips out of a giant automated box? Is there anything less dependable, yet more tempting, than a vending machine?

Seriously, think of how many machines out there that have labels on them of what you should not do when they don't work. Vending machines have to warn people not to shake them because they could potentially be crushed to death. Yet, they seem to know it will inevitably happen because people are so frustrated!

Folks are sharing all their vending machine fails on Twitter, and each one is more relatable than the last.

Like Nicole whose tweet perfectly exemplifies that Monday feel.

"My Sun Chips got stuck in the vending machine," she wrote along with a photo of her unfortunately situation. She even tagged the company! I hope they responded y sending her a bunch of free chips.
