Soda Machine

In college, I remember one of the most amazing things I saw involved a soda machine. Our dorm was really an apartment building, and it was ten stories high and shaped like an “L”. We had access to the roof, and many spent time up there sunbathing during the day, or hanging out a bit at night. It was safe for the most part, but looking back, I’m not sure how safe it could have been. Somehow, a few students managed to get a soda machine up on that roof, and they dropped it into the parking lot. In the process, two cars were destroyed. Needless to say, after that, all soda machines were removed from the building, and the door to the roof was locked forever.

You can imagine how much damage a soda machine dropped from that height could do. Looking back, it is a good thing no one got hurt. If it had landed on a person, they would not have survived. I didn’t see the soda machine fall, but I did hear the crash when it landed. When I ran to the window, I could not believe what I was seeing. I have no idea who dropped it down, but it had to be more than one person. I’m not sure what happened to those students, but I’m sure they were in a lot of trouble after that incident.

We had to go elsewhere to find a soda machine after that, and we weren’t exactly in the safest neighborhood. I believe there were two companies that offered to bring in a soda machine or two that could be secured to the floor. The school refused, and we were left to fend for ourselves. In retrospect, I’m kind of glad about this. Soda is probably one of the least healthy things you can drink, and in college, I would have drank a lot of it. Not only would I probably have put on some pounds, I would have gone broke sliding dollars into a soda machine.

No matter what you think of soda though, you can get a soda machine or two to earn a little extra cash. You can fill them with more than just soda, however, as many people like to drink bottled water. You can put juice and water in a soda machine if you wish, and you will make just as much money. If you look online, you will find many companies that can deliver soda machines to you at your business or even to your home if you want.
